    I was wondering if there was anyone in the western New York area that was doing some vacuum bagging or resin infusion work. I would love the chance to watch or help with a project to learn how to do it.

    I am interested in building composite rudders and daggerboards. I would like to get a better finish than a wet layup, and would like to see the best way to keep a project from warping.

    Thanks,

    Stop warpping

    The resin "kick" causes the warpping. You have to apply fewer layers of glass and leave the part in the mold until the cure 24hr., usually, can set the resin
