I have been using FCS Fusion for a few years now and I am pretty happy with the ease of installation and Ive nverer had any blowouts.
I do have a question for those that might use them, or know of them...
When I go to sand the plugs down (after hotcoating) in beginning to sand the board, I am finding that I am exposing some of the cloth adjacent to the raised plug slots themselves. Those that know the Fusion plugs will know that they have a coloured rim around the plug slot, which is designed to be removed during the sanding process. So what Im finding is that I am sanding down to remove the coloured rim, while during this process I am starting to espose the weave of the my cloth immediately adjacent to the raised plug slots and the plugs themselves.
I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions of setting the depth of the box better so as I can remove the coloured rim, without exposing the weave.
For the record my instal process is:
- rout plug holes , set and cure plugs in
- lay up 4 ounce cloth patches and have them cure before I laminate the bottom of the board.
To me it sounds like I am setting the plugs too low. Has anyone got any hints/tips on setting my router to a more apprpriate depth?
