Re: Buckled side

If it's under 1/2 a mm and you have 2mm sides you can safely level it since the material removed will mostly be over the top of the linings.

Falbo Intension Bridge

falbo-g.jpg I heard Frank Falbo speaking on a podcast about his intension bridge design, which I thought sounded interesting.

Re: Falcate pattern without CF?

I know the Brisbane AGMS rout about 0.5mm on the bottom of the braces to take the CF but not the top.
