OK, so we missed an early change to that little pesky bulkhead that is by the instrument panel, supposed to make it an inch higher and didn't.

Went out in the shop, found original templet hank had returned, put it on new plywood drew a new curve

cut the piece on band saw
sanded piece on sander
cut ply twice as long
routed new shape on both sides of new full size templet.

Tomorrow we will align on current bulkheads, will align near perfect as bottom curve is on the current bulkhead and templet.

last week we added the required foam and fiberglass extension to the bulkhead

will route bulkhead on both planes the same and the same left and right.

Whether or not you use templates (I am a template person), you will need to cut the foam to specific sizes. Although not difficult, using a mat knife gives less than perfect cuts. Go to your local artists supply store and get a Logan
Series 1500 Foam cutter (abou $18.00) or equalivelent. This baby will hold a blade at 90 or 45 degrees (your selection) cuts easily, good visibility and no mess (other than the normal shedding of dust from the foam piece.) Use a straight edge or freehand it.

Here's the new - improved bulkhead templates with the extension tabs.

The tabs allow you to continue past the end with the router without damaging the part.

Nice looking templates. Is there a rental policy on them?

I have both a large router and laminate trim router. I'd rather not use my nice router bits to cut cured glass however, I'd rather not have to keep buying crappy bits if they wear out quickly. Do I need to be concerned or do the bits eat the glass pretty easily?

carbide bits last forever on the glass - trim to fat 1/16 to 1/8 with saber saw or band saw, not closer as the glass will delam, then finish with laminate trimmer with top bearing(the bearing on the shaft not the end)

CLEARLY Mark the center line and top and bottom stops for alignment, make only 1/2 templet - then when you flip it, it will be symmetrical

i love my laminate trimmer

Bearings? So I take it that you use a fence of some kind for the bearing to roll on?

Unless I misunderstood, the bearing rolls on the template

Well they should be and probably they will be passed around once mplafleur uses them - he has been making them for a year. A little, spelled HUGE, home addition has gotten in the way of his build

mine are waiting to be used in iowa for 7 years or so now!!!

I made a video tutorial on how to use the templates. I thought it may be 5 minutes, but I'm struggling to keep it under 10 minutes.

Ya I know, I like to hear myself talk.


I should be done with the editing it in a few more days. I don't want to take time away from the build to edit it.
