Most of the specialized tools and equipment you need for snowboard construction has to be built by you. This tends to involve a bit of metal working and machining.

This page will expand over time to include more metal working resources specifically applicable to things like press construction.

Working with copper tubing

The single best guide I’ve found for how to solder copper pipe is Soldering and Brazing Copper Tube and Fittings, directly from the Copper Development Association, Inc.

To-do

Need to add links for the following topics:

  • Drilling and tapping, including mag drills
  • Cutting aluminum sheet for mold skins
  • deburring
  • extruded aluminum beams
  • basics of precision machining
  • cutting edge material
