This is a table that I built
Fully adjustable rocker and concave
Simpley loosen or tighten the nuts to get the desired rocker and concave
Rocker tables looks great!
Its a bit tricky to see the details of the concave adjustors. Is there another metal bar running down the middle and the nuts sit on top of that?
What thickness MDF have you got on top?
Also, what material do you put over the top when you vacuum bag?
Ok you have a rocker table with concave in it how dose the top of board stay flat if the bottom has a concave in it . Or do ya put up with a curley top (toe to heel rocker) . I soppose the strap under pad would take care of it . Or do you machine out the bottom of the board for the rocker .
The middle is the same as the out side, so in total there is three lengths of steel to adjust, the two out side ones are both set the same with the middle one set slightly higher for you concave.
The top sheet of MDF is 12ml thick
I lay my glass on top of a sheet of Perspex with mould release on top to stop the resin from sticking.
The top of the board will have a slight curve in it but with pads and straps you cant tell.
Found this while buying rust sealing paint.
Might be worth a look & experiment for board finishing.
