Molding/Bagging

Hello,

Can anyone recommend any websites, books, or videos on fuse mold building or wing mold/bagging.

Thanks

Bob

Phil Barnes just came out with THE definitive video on vacuum bagging glider wings. You can get information on ordering it off of the Yahoo SALglider group.

I have a copy and it's very good. Convinced me to buy everything to do bagging myself. I'm currently working on my equipment and hope to start bagging soon.

Thanks for the info on the video Allen,

I found out there is a web site with two video clips of the video if anyone is interested. Is this video helpful enough to a person with little experience? Anyone else seen it? Did it help you with your bagging projects?

It's particularly helpful for someone without bagging experience. I had never done any bagging. Saw demo at a local club which got me interested. Bought the video and that filled in all the missing information. I bagged my first wing last night - I pull it from the bag tonight.

The only part that Phil doesn't cover is setting up your vacuum source. If you can get some local help with that the video will answer all your other questions.

Phil Barnes Vacuum Bagging Video

Thanks for the mention Al,

A little about the video,

Phil Barnes is well know in sailplane circles. He has been manufacturing
wings for many, many years. First working with Frank Weston making Magics
and Merlins. For many years now, he has been making most of the bagged wings
and tails for Northeast Sailplane Products thermal and slope kits. Last year
he started producing wings for Polecat Aeroplane Works popular line of DLG
gliders. He also sells the Tom Kiesling designed Mantis Unlimited TD kits
directly. If you fly sailplanes, chances are you have flown wings made by
Phil at one time or another.

This 4 1/2 hour instructional video takes you step by step, in great detail, through the processes of making vacuum bagged composite wings and tails starting
from raw foam right through to finished parts.

This is a 2 DVD set, packed full of invaluable information, that will
ensure the novice good results as well as give the seasoned builder new
insight into producing top quality wings and tails. If you bag your own
wings, or want to get started, this is a one of a kind, must have, video.

You can download a couple of Video clips and read testimonials at;
