A friend who works in a composites shop sent me about 14 lbs of off cut carbon cloth to play around with..
This will by my first composites project so yeah I'm a newb to this..
So the question is what would you make with it?
I have about 40' of 4" wide 3k 12.5x12.5 plain weave (guess 5-6oz/yard) rolled on a tube.
several yards of 12k 2x2 twill in large random sizes.. It's all been folded so no unfolded section larger than 12x24 but I have lots and lots of them..
one big piece of 12k +/- 45° biaxial.. again folded
I know this stuff is on the heavy side so that is a limitation..
Ideas that come to mind..
Make a mold of the Byron P-51 spinner and make a carbon spinner using the twill..
landing gear for my 27% Cap 232
Cowl for the Cap.. I'd have to carve a plug and make a mold..
Wing tube sockets for the cap.
My goal is to get to the point I can lay up a propeller well enough for use on my Byron P-51.
I'd like to make a cuffed version of the P-51 propeller in carbon.
The worlds heaviest and strongest Jart
I can think of a few motorcycle parts I wouldn't mind for my Suzuki GS1000
Any other ideas?
I still need to get some west epoxy and mold making supplies so I have lots of time before I get started..
I may start with a lost foam or balloon molded cowl for my dirty birdy to get my feet wet..
