    Hi Everyone

    I am planning to build a fibreglass mould, something I have never done before. In this mould I am building a 3 meter long fibreglass blade for a small size wind generator. This first mould will only be the mould for the prototype.

    Now to my questions;

    Where can I find a good book/DVD/or online manual for step-by-step mould building?

    Infusion or closed moulding processes is not for me at this stage, but I would like to try vacuum bagging after wet-lay up, which start-up kit/manual is recommended?

    Thanks in advance //Niklas
