Re: Strip: Bjorn thomasson frej for big guy

Thanks for the report- it looks like you are making good progress.
Having all the strips the same thickness prevents a lot of hassles later. Also, those 5mm strips will be easier to bend and twist than thicker ones.

Any tips for a cheaper equally precise way to line up the moulds?

String (or good sewing thread) and sticks (scraps or cutoffs from boat strips, fastened to the molds with spring clamps) work for me. I tried using a laser and it was too much hassle. It doesn't matter if the molds are level and plumb (to the earth or shop floor) so long as they are aligned properly with each other.
