Saturday Matinee: Resin Infusion Experiments

A couple weeks ago I did a test infusion on a small piece in an attempt to replicate what might happen when I infuse the rudder. I shot a video of it which you can watch below. All in all things went ok. The flow medium caused the resin to flow to the vacuum port a bit too quickly, so I will adjust how the flow medium is layed out when I do the rudder.
Definately a riveting video. Besure and pop some popcorn before you view. It is about 3-4 minutes long, time compressed. The actual infusion took about an hour.
