OPTION 159 SUPERCHARGER with a blown out edge




Is is worth paying something between US$15 and US$50 for this?
I want a board that i can screw around with in the yard and us in rocky conditions is this too gone to bother?
How much would it cost to fix the edge if i felt inclined?

i remember there was some base repair candles that you melt, but that may be a bit much for those. what 'bout epoxy?

I say its worth 10-15 to learn to do repairs on.

PTex candles are chepa...like $1 each, but I don't think it can save it. I'm thinking epoxy and then find some way to even it out...damn,

epoxy is a #%*%$&^!#! to sand, i tried to do that once. glass resin may be better(?)

'cept for be careful of the dust that comes off of it once you do, that stuff is frikkin nasty & toxic.

and btw, snowwolf: you are knowledgeable of all things snow. i am consistently impressed.
