    Carbon Fiber Special Workshop June 9

    I have an open Saturday on June 9.

    I will host this workshop at my woodworking shop. My son, Robert will be the guest instructor. He has years of experience working with carbon fiber in the auto/hot rod industry, the aerospace industry, and the prosthetics industry and Robert is a Level 2 Aerospace certified carbon fiber fabricator.
    A portion of the class will be taught in his prototype shop - same address.

    The workshop will focus on understanding and using carbon fiber.
    This would be a seminar, demo and some hands on

    This is not a typical fiberglass layup class. Carbon fiber, done right, can be so much more

    This is an intensive class - Class will begin at 9 am and run until 4 pm with a working lunch provided, please let me know if there are any special dietary needs

    Topics will include:

    Weaves, weights and what to use when
    Resin types and mixes
    Carbon fiber layup
    Forged carbon fiber
    Vacuum bagging
    Resin impregnation with vacuum
    Curing technology and methods
    Use of prepreg fiber and proper storage

    Hands on will include:
    - mold making
    - forming carbon fiber parts using molds
    - laying up sheets for max strength
    - resin infusion
    - making and using a vacuum bag

    Use of carbon fiber to strengthen curved wood laminations
    Methods to inlay carbon fiber

    Safety glasses and nitrile gloves will be provided

    Please respond if you are interested

    Here is the student list - we can handle 7
    Dean (gtrboy77)- confirmed 5/16
    Danny Batchelor- confirmed 5/17

    Rich (Mrfixit71)- confirmed 5/17
    Mike Davis - confirmed 5/18
    Steve Coles
    Michael Mathews

    For those on the above list, please verify you are coming
    Plus we have room for more

    Workshop cost will be $30 donation to site plus $10 material cost

    And yes the workshop will be a cool 70 degrees

    Sounds like something I would love to attend. Is this anything that could be videoed and shared with many?

    Video is possible, but would require somebody to shoot the footage (or is that bytes) and edit into a usable video. I would not have time as I will be concentrating on the workshop. As planned the workshop will take place in multiple areas so just setting up a camera and letting it roll would not work. Hopefully somebody will volunteer ... would you like to do this ?

    Re: Possible Special Workshop June 9

    I'm trying to get my knee replacement surgery scheduled for May/June. We definitely need one on the waiting list just in case. I really want to go to the workshop but I'll let y'all know when I do.

    Re: Possible Special Workshop June 9

    I’m still planning on attending. How do we pay the $30 donation to the site?

    There should be a donate button at the top of the page. This may take you to the raffle ticket page - if so just buy 6 x $5 tickets and you could be a double winner
