Ben, my itchey fin-making friend.

It is on my need to build before I die list.

That is a tall challenge.

Got something similar on my bucket list. Neal Purchase "Virgin"

You thinking?????

On the serious side how would one go about shaping a single concave on a HP 5-10?

Thanks!

I would rather be someone's shot of whiskey, than everyone's cup of tea.

Matt,

Concave is really easy.

I work from the center out.

Back-cuts with the Skil make it easy.

Litteraly takes me seconds.

I do it in an eliptical motion.

One of the greatest things about a Skil 100 is the ability to run it backwards to clean up the passes made going forward.

If done correctly, it will clean up planer lines like a Surform.

Just by opening the front shoe while going backwards works so good.

Learned that one from my good friend / previous employer Gary Linden.

Thanks Barry for going above and beyond the call of duty!  Thanks to all who participated.  Barry gave us a good week of this, 2 pages, and pictures too.  Don't think we could ask for much more.  Tonight I'll add EXPIRED to the title, and Barry will be off the hook and out of the hot seat.

Huck,

This was fun.

Hope I helped somebody.

With all the great shapers I have been fortunate to work with,

I could write a book.

Most are willing to share with their knowledge.

So I just pass it forward.

I answer lots of questions at the shop too.

Challenge yourself.

Never stop learning is my final tip.

Thanks again Barry, had a great run, set the bar and showed how it should be done.  I think we all learned something in this thread.

Swaylocks member Greg Tate has informed me he is working on getting us another volunteer, no promises, but for his efforts we all owe him a big debt of gratitude.

Hope this is OK ...

BUMP.

I missed the first two of these "hot seats" and went looking for them. Feels like they should be on the front page ;)

Well, hello Barry.  We are still grateful for your spin in the hotseat.  Glad to see you are still doing well and growing the biz.  I', trying to figure out how to get out there to see the show and if I do, I will be sure to stop by and say hey.

all the best to you.

According to Mikki Dora Malibu went to the Dogs in 1964. The Chumash Indians will tell you it was 1664.

No rush. On getting ready for the Del Mar Show.  The way things are going the whole West Coast including Hawaii will be "locked down" Vacine or not thru 2021.  Gavin doesn't surf.  And doesn't give a flow.
