Are you Q?
I think I might need to renew it, or check the license to see if Mr Nelson included this amount of time still, or more appropriately how much he wrote it for.
I think I only have the Batray mold file, but I might have more. I am very interested in producing our version of it. One thing I might be able to say specially over the winter which will help make the boards reasonably quick time in the press is to use the Nelson mold which has extra geometry in it in my opinion. Might be able to pull boards out of the press at 2 hours and have them come out somewhat regularly. as long as the same person laminates all of them and that would be Jordan, who has laminated decks for us for 6 years. He’s glued by far more boards than all of us, and even though we’re good, he’s really good, and we have a very low rate of breakage as long as geometry doesn’t conflict with deep flush mounts, and wheel wells. We also have a low rate of delamination. The same dialog must be had with the interplay between wood and composite materials to press time to resulting geometry. I might want to keep all the geometry, as I’ve never stood on a batray but I imagine esk8s want to be wider the wider the axle gets, and that means lower angle molds.
I really love getting PMs, but I would appreciate all dialog to happen on this page, so that these questions can be answered to more people might be seeking these answers, both for people who want to build boards them selves, and people who want to sell them, and we can all together gauge this as a reasonable possibility for a sustainable business being added to the mix.
The most passionate of my wishes while I’m not working on other things is the idea of making an e board that is has a list of cool new ideas.
