like 150 degrees or so i think, not too sure, ill throw a thermometer next to the skis and check it out
woa thats really helpful actually. thanks, if i can control the temperature that might be the best option
^yeah, im gonna slowly spread them wider and wider, maybe add a second bible eventually, i dont wanna spread them too wide right off cause i think the core would get really weak and snap easily, this way i think the core will slowly stretch and bend and maintain strength
Rocker-ing skis is easy, it just takes some time, and the ability to wait for the finished product.
Here is what I did, and keep in mind, I kinda work for a ski company... so if I fuck up its no big loss.
1. Create some sort of jig. placing a bible between 2 skis is inaccurate. one ski make "take" better then the other, so build a jig.
2. heat is your friend and your enemy. SLOWLY HEAT!!!!!!!!! Heat guns are needed, but a hair dryer could work in the right situation.
3. Time. let it cool, then heat it again, then let it cool, then heat it again.... you get the picture.
4. add more rocker in the jig then you want, its gonna spring back some.
