Noodle - Are you getting your E.P.S. blanks from Henry Fry in Pasadena TX.? I am wanting to try to shape my first board but the cost of getting a Clark blank is a killer. I can get a blank from Henry alot cheaper. 2 questions on epoxy. 1. Is it alot different to shape the E.P.S. as opposed to a poly. blank? Do you use the same techniques? 2. I have never glassed a board and I have heard some nasty stories about epoxy. Is it difficult to use? Thanks ahead of time. Do you live in the Houston area? Thanks again, P.V.
