Hayshaker, did you build a press, like stationary on a bench, or use clamps? Are they all epoxy? I thought polyester resin was used. Like the auto store fiberglass stuff.

well as for the press it is made of wood and angle iron
the resin/hardener is west systems. and it is spendy
not like the bondo brand by 3M,
there are a couple examples of the micarta in the thread
