Starting the carbon fiber chain plate

The design calls for 1 inch of epoxy putty that joins the foam core with the G10 fiberglass tube. I constructed a simple mold and mixed the putty (all micro balloons this time) so that it would still pour and carefully filled it up so that there would be no voids.

I am pretty happy with the result. Next, I need to wrap it with the unidirectional carbon fiber and then cut it into the two required parts.
