When I replaced the FC on my 64 Bandmaster my original plan was to remove the whole FC fiberboard with the components and replace it with a complete new one with new components. Just seemed like a good way to preserve the original board. At the time wasn’t sure how it was wired so replaced the FC but in the process saw lifting the board would not have been that hard. Now the other problem the board is 3 ¾ wide by 5 ½ long The only board I saw was 3 1/8 wide (fiberglass) I didn’t want to use one of the perforated boards and looking at some other materials that would work just got into to much $$$. I thought about plastic laminate (Formica) would it melt? Way to thin. So I came up with this idea I took some hardboard ran it threw the drum sander until I had a piece that would equal ¼” sandwiched between two pieces of laminate. Then I used water base contact cement pressed it together with clamps and pieces of plywood. It turned out pretty nice, really ridged looks good. So I made a board for the bandmaster still might use it and redo the original one. I did try a test solder on a piece the laminate did not melt. I don’t think it will delaminate with all the eyelets or turrets in it. So what do you think?
