In a reference to this and the PPZ (PocketPenguinZero: DIY PDA in Hardware-Mods forum) Does anyone know a commercial manufacturer of Carbon Fibre casing? We're looking at using it over Aluminium in the PPZ for sakes of Weight, strength, and size.

Dont suppose you have a link to a DIY carbon fiber tutorial, im intrugied if it is as easy as you say


Take a look at something like this:

You need a vacuum pump and an oven. Other than that, it can be quite simple (prepreg) or quite complex (determining resin/filler percentages), though for this application, the absolute strength of the material is not that important so the filler/resin calculations and uniformity are not too troublesome (from what I remember of my University placement manufacturing composites).
