Re: SOBX Little Big Boat GV15 build questions

Looks better. :D
After curing and cutting the ties, check for any low spots in the epoxy, sand it with 40 grit and add a little more. You'll want a nice smooth radius for the tape to lay on with no low spots.

Re: SOBX Little Big Boat GV15 build questions

Personnally I'd add more. Are you in the window for chemical bond still? I'd also add a more in between the zip ties. 4th zip tie from the tip could use some in the gaps. Remember you'll have to fill those up to create a flat surface for the FG to lay on. I would have filled so it was a bit rounded ...

Re: Respirator mask during the pandemic?

Yeah they bought a PAPR at work a couple years ago but I don't think it has been used much. For painting I greatly prefer the air supplied systems (aka forced air) where you set the unit in an area with clean fresh air, and it pumps air to the user. If you want to be absolutely sure, those are the ...

Re: SOBX Little Big Boat GV15 build questions

Yesterday, I applied epoxy+wood flour glue between the zip ties of the stitched-up hull. One concern I have is the strength of the seams near the bow. The panel have quite a bit of bend in this area and I'm a bit worried the seam might 'pop' when I remove the zip ties. Should I add some fiberglass ...

That compressor will work with quite a few air sanders such as this one https://www.homedepot.com/p/Husky-6-in- ... /204671962

Requires 3 cfm at 90 psi. Since that's a 2 stage compressor you'll be fine running a lot of different air tools.

Re: Respirator mask during the pandemic?

Forced air system is totally superior to a filter respirator for 2 part paints anyway. It's a little expensive, but you can peddle later and recover part of your investment. It eliminates any concern about mask fit, filter effectiveness, etc. Just FYI Powered Air Purifying Respirators (PAPR) are be...
