What does a Ski Molder do?

Fabricates sock and aligns sock with other ski parts in die press that molds components into partially fabricated ski: Places fiberglass lay-up on worktable, pours epoxy resin over lay-up, and spreads resin with paddle to facilitate saturation. Positions ski core on lay-up, places foot-pad on top of core, and pours resin over core and foot-pad. Folds lay-up around core and foot-pad to form sock, cuts sock to contour of ski toe with scissors and template, and aligns sock assembly in specified manner within mold press. Places ski base layer in press with sock assembly in specified alignment and activates press to shape and mold layers.
