Introduction: First Functional Carbon Fiber Piece I Ever Made-- Carbon Fiber Money Clip
I wanted to try some different laminating techniques, so I tried with some 3k, 2x2 twill carbon fiber sleeving and made a "money clip". These pictures are the first ones I took of it. I did eventually add more epoxy so that the entire surface was glossy, but during a strength test, I destroyed it...oops. Its ok, I found that only two layers of CF isn't quite enough and the way I had layed the CF and let it cure caused it to not want to clamp back shut if it had been holding a generous amount of bills (all ones of course ;)). Either way, Ive been a member here for a while and have read and used plenty of instructables, I think it's about time I start adding something to the community, even if it is just photos at first.
