yes, it's better to start with another new back. You can try to fix the old back, of course, but there is not an exact process. You have to try different possible solutions. First, fix the precision clamps at the heads of the back, then you apply the clamps in the above photo. Remember: the new joi...

clamp

thank you, I have one of them, a cheaper version, not working very well. I could actually use rubber band on button part. I will let you know if I have any difficulty to fix it. Yes, I thought 1 to 4 glue was OK, it turned out to weak, will get back to 1 to 2 when I regule the back.

Weak glue or bad joint?

The plate separated while I was working on hollowing. What is your opinion? Is the plate rescuable? and what kind of tool I will need?
thanks in advance for the advice.

BC carving board

Claudio, I got the BC carving board a couple months ago, a very useful tool, and the ball clamp quite stable with no problem so far. However, I am about to start to dig out the back, found out it could not fit well on the board. The question is do you revised the board and make it deeper to accomoda...

Thanks Claudio.

I mounted the back Sunday night, removed the mould last night. the tiny opening hole seems ok at this stage.
