i'm making a home made wakeskate and all i need to know is what kind of epoxy do i need to use, and where do i find it? I've looked alover and the only epoxy i've found is the stuff that come in the small seringe type applicators. Are there any alternative products? I've looked at a building adhesive (PL200)

anything that could lead me in the right would be much appreiciated


thanks

Any kind of two-part marine epoxy will work perfectly. You can usually get it in cans up to 2 litres.

I agree with Brian B., Bull Dog, I used the strogest one they made it is work great, my board is over a year old and it has not started to delaminate or weakin in anyway.

What is the best Bull Dog adhesive to use? I've seen like PL200, PL400, PL700, and PL Premium. What's the difference in each? How many tubes did you guys need for your wakeskate?

I used PL Premium, as far as i know it was the strongest, and I think I used one tube between each layer. Make sure you use a notched spreader to spread the glue around real good making sure it covers all the board.

by the way I only had 3 layers of wood, so I only had to use 2 tubes.

make sure that when you cut the pattern out and glue them togther that you have alternating grains for added strength, I had the top and bottom layer running lengthwise and the middle layer the grain was running widthwise.

Good luck
remember making it yourself is the fun part
