2016.10.28 - Laminating the Coachroof Beams - The Glueing

The temperature today was to my advantage. not too hot, not too cold. The epoxy did not start to cure noticeably until after I had finished the beams. So now I should have four beams ready and waiting for me to plane them and cut them to size on my return.

The is the one with no epoxy in the middle. You can just about see that the middle section is not bleeding epoxy everywhere.

Beam number 4 (the front one).

And beams 2 and 3.

I knew I should have bought more cramps. I ran out and had to use screws. Another 20 cramps would have done the trick. I wonder if they are still on offer...
