Subject : platen for glueing torsion box skins Posted : 2023-03-31 10:59 AM Post #38029
hello, when glueing the top and bottom skin of a torsion box using a vacuum press do I need a platen or does the opposing skin serve the purpose of the platen. I would plan to glue one skin at a time.
also, any concerns about distorting the torsion box by using a vacuum press? the ribs are 3/8 baltic birch and the skins are 1/2" MDO ( for subsequent veneering). thank you for any advice.
