laminating


Interesting discovery today was how to make thin strong laminated
material for panels very cheaply, when you are around car boot sales or
junk markets keep an eye open for an old hand operated clothes wringer
condition immaterial apart from it needs good rollers.
coat a sheet of 1mm balsa thinly with PVA and drop it onto brown paper
and coat the other side and cover with brown paper then run it through
the wringer a couple of times wiping off excess glue from the rollers in
between each pass, lay flat and weigh down to dry, what you end up with
is a thin strong panel that is not much heavier than the original Balsa
sheet once it is dry but much stronger and with one coat of sealer and
rubbed down with wire wool it is ready to paint,
