    I thought you were saying that "Ski Press" the magazine made skis. That woulda been interesting.

    Oh, and to answer your question I don't know where you could find a ski press.

    Didn't Mulletizer make one?

    You don't need a press, you can use Vacuum-Bagging. Look up DIY ski construction, loads can be found on google.

    Do you realize that you've just posted an admission of ignorance so breathtaking that it disqualifies you from commenting on any political or economic threads from here on out?

    have fun planing in the camber, bending the tip, and matching ski flex also.

    Vacume bagging is a shity method for making skis. However a ski press can be easily built if you are smart enough to actually be building skis in the first place. There is no comercial supliers for ski presses they are all custom built to spec.

    Check this out.....it's for snowboards but it can be used for making, designing skis too.
    If you make a press like these guys, you must post pictures.

    www.snowboardmaterials.com usually has machinery, but it might not be long enough to make skis. Good source of materials as well

    The Graf press is nearly identicale to those used by mervin and others it is a very cheap method of making a decent press. However I have my doubts that the presses sold on snowboardingmaterials.com can actually generate and maintian adequate pressure.
