My greetings to everyone! Here is my process. If you are interested, ask questions...
After moistening the carbon fiber with resin, the fabric does not disintegrate ...Thank you for posting this.
But also, thank goodness for Youtube's "mute" feature
There are several steps in the process that are shown repetitively, and yet several other steps that are not shown or shown adequately. For example, during the first laminations, it is not shown if or when you remove the white colored backing sheets from the carbon. It is not clear when those sheets are in place and when they are removed.
Also, how is the carbon held onto the backing sheets, such that it stays in place but the backing can be removed without disturbing the weave?
so what was the load calculated for (G loading you used)....and do you understand the assumptions or formula used to determine the thickness.....for example the OP tail spring looks like "black steel or black aluminum"...that being usually meant to mean the same thickness and dimensions except made out of Carbon Fiber.....certainly that is less weight but could the part be even thinner and weight even less had some form of calculations been used to determine a new thickness. Oh and is the existing carbon part stiffer less stiff than needed or than the original part.calculated
