In memory of ReadError;
A core part of the design is to ‘hold it all together’; which will required me to actually make some composites myself. Fun and games. Fabric and resin purchased from EasyComposites.co.uk.
Next: Build a jig.
THIS THREAD IS PERFECT WITHOUT PICTURES
After consulting with the experts, a resin/adhesive has been chosen..
I have chosen a material as below. Order placed now with Fibre-Lyte for a top class composite product which will be used for the core frame of the Quad of Doom. Watch this space.
I have received my composite samples of various thickness’s. I have decided on which material to use for the main part of the frame and will be placing my composites order shortly. Please hold.
I have been in contact with my favourite composites supplier, Fibre-Lyte, to get some samples of their thinner materials. Based on my draft frame design, I predict I will need something in the region of 0.7mm for the majority of the frame, but I will be testing 0.5, 0.7 and 1.0mm. Watch this space.
