A few of us have been interested in making skis for ourselves.
Ok so I've been pricing things out. The press will probably cost about 150-175 plus w/e the fire hose costs. We can probably get the fire hose for cheap from sombody on skibuilders.com ($1 per foot) but then the shipping could be really expensive depending on where he is from. So the whole press will probably end up costing around $200 give or take 25 either way.
As for the core profiler we should have enough MDH board left from the press molds to make that without any cost. However does anyone happen to own a router? On that topic does anyone own a hand held belt sander?
Now the materials for a pair of skis will cost around $200 from what me and eric have looked at. (I went to www.snowboardmaterials.com and priced it all out there but we can probably get it from somwhere else to)
One final thing. We need a place to do this. I thought we had somwhere but I found out we cant use that so does anyone who's interested in making skis have a place where we could do this?
