Default Re: Warped 'fibreboard' (?) on Avominor

-Just held it over the boiling kettle with soft-jawed grips and turned a few times. 75% success with the first steaming and clamping, interesting to see a memory effect when the second steaming went on too long. Hurriedly clamped it up and there was a further improvement. Minor dry tweaks to the shape after a day out of the clamp were successful- i THINK that i detected improved malleability when doing these final tweaks, but this could have been a bit of retained moisture. Against my initial instinct, the material IS rather porous! Thanks for your advice. Will leave it a few more days to check stability.
