sole canting a fischer vacuum boot

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi Guys:

 

I heard tell that you can sole cant a fischer vacuum by placing a cant wedge of length around 2 feet in the fischer boot tray after cooking the boot, placing the boot in pressure apparatus and then pressurizing.  The trick is that the cant is placed opposite of where it is needed.

 

Can anyone comment on this technique? Yeah I know I will hear the usual arguments of inexact sole cant angle and so forth. but is this a viable alternative to sole shimming and planing? Remember that the fischer boot can remolded multiple times to get it right vs a one shot deal on planing and sole canting, Once you router the toe - heel binding interface, it may be hard to change again and planing generates friction heat that may deform the boot..

 

any comments on the heat moldable  technique?

why would you attempt to "game" the sole cant, when you could simply set the knee cups up directly above the center of the tray so that the boot ends up perfectly balanced after molding. or set the knee cups inboard or onboard of center if that is your desired target.

 

then you could use the cant strips to level a table or something like that:cool
