Make sure your surface is PERFECTLY FLAT. Make sure the core is aligned perfectly in the shucks and place another perfectly flat piece on top. As can be seen, I use pool table slate throughout. If you notice, I have a jack directly in the middle of the whole thing. Use a straight edge on your surface to make sure it is staying flat while adding weight. Here, I am use nearly 700 lbs. Some think this sounds like too much, but it is less than half of what vacuum bagging applies. This kind of weight is what I believe is key to the skins bonding and not just sticking.  CHECK FOR STRAIGHTNESS THROUGH EACH STEP. A straight edge is a must.
