Sweet, talk about 'continual improvement' right there! I'm not sure, I'll have to check, but there might be thumbscrews available with the nylon self-holding patch as well.

Well, Ken got my blank paddles in yesterday! Hopefully I'll have the 1K/2K set some time in the next couple weeks, right about when the 800/1K is supposed to show up. THEN I'll actually be able to get some edges on it! In the next few weeks I'll be having Ken make me up the 5K/8K on the other set of blanks I ordered... THAT should put a respectable edge on for sure!

Way to go Dan! You will be turning out edges that border on atomic quality...little mushroom clouds forming over the edges as they slice and chop!! :woohoo: Scary!

Cheers

Thanks guys for the tip on the purple Loctite! I just ordered a batch for testing. If it works well, we can add it to our QC process before the sharpeners go out.

You are welcome Clay! I will be getting some of the purple Loctite this week so I can reverse my paddle arms with impunity. Did you order from Amazon or Fatenel's Clay? I think including it in your QC is a wonderful idea. The stuff will be great for both reversing the paddle arms or just for when they are being used normally...no more screws slipping out of place.

Ken shipped the first pair off my way last Saturday, so I'll probably have a chance to play with them mid-week. Really looking forward to it!

I'll have to snag some of the 222MS from the back here and give it a try myself.
