I poked around on a few site with honeycomb aluminum but didn't find any pricing yet. You still have to fill the edges as they would be wicked sharp.

I almost want to order up a sheet of c/f nomex for that ridiculous price I found just for the heck of it. Who in their right mind would buy a $300 set up board? I've wasted more on other dumb stuff.

Bob; hopefully you put that door back, but I will never tell her where all the black marks came from.

Joe,

Tim says that yours is supreme. We can talk cost off-line.

Can't say that I remember noticing it...Always looking at the cars...LOL

Thanks.

Bill

I bought one of these years ago, but again, the silver CF is too shiny. So, it sits in my basement, new as the day I bought it. I dunno why, but I find a setup board with a reflective surface extremely difficult to use for any length of time.

I use the Team Magic board 'cause it's dark on one side and light on the other. I can flip it over based on the lighting conditions to find what's easiest on the eyes. I'm following this thread with great interest, though.

And I only expected 3-5 responses at the most...LOL

Obviously, there is a potential market for high end setup boards.

I have samples of the aluminum honeycomb plate in 3/8" thick and 1/4" thick I think. They are 12" x 18". Amazingly this stuff is nearly as expensive as the Carbon fiber honeycomb plate I have. I also have fiberglass honey comb plates. By the time you de-core the outside 2 rows of cells and then fill with colored epoxy, then router them again, you have a ton of time invested. I gave one of the aluminum plates to Ehrlich and I think he finished it.

I'll post a pick soon of a new pit board I made for myself for offroad. It's pretty sick. It's 18" x 18" with a 2.5mm carbon plate with a screwed on acylic plate over it. I painted a design and my logo around the outside (on the inside of the acylic) before I screwed them together.

Yea, I'm going to have to make one. I'm sure we have enough "scrap" around the lab at school to do something with it :P

Korey,

I forgot you are in the VRI at Western. When I was up there we had huge (like 5' x 10') sheets of 1/2" thick carbon fiber honeycomb plate. Viking 23's chassis was made out of it. Boeing donated a ton of material that they normally used for flooring in jets. Good luck.

Troy
