karoliina Posted December 15, 2004 Share Posted December 15, 2004 Hi, Because I am totally inexperienced with glass fiber works, I purchased several days ago a 20 kg canister of polyester resin (cheap), 1 kg hardener, 5 kg mold release agents, some glass fiber cloth and some foam (cheapest I found). I am not going to build an aircraft from this material as it has not aircraft strength and weight properties, but I am using it for training to do this stuff. I have never done anything like this before and I need to start training from somewhere. Now I am preparing to do some horns for loudspeakers from glass fiber and the spherical horn mold is nearly ready (I made it from wood using a lathe). And a cat sand box (that is where I need that foam because it will be a moldless composite sand box). And, nearly forgot, I purchased also a gas mask. I don't want to destroy my brain cells because of the fumes. Lets see how long I need to work on this phase before I can give myself green light for ordering Cozy plans - I need to try first if I can learn to do this on the first place with high quality required for aircraft components before starting the project because I don't want a project that never finishes so I need to try things first before starting the actual project. Preparation are everything, aren't they? Best Wishes, Karoliina Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
