Re: Another Jet Squirt is born.

Thanks everyone

Most of the pictures i have seen of the sheer / breast hook joint look just like i have, but it seemed like i would fair away most of the sheer. I think i will laminate a piece on the stem like gdcarpenter suggested. That way i would not have to fair all my sheers away.

And how do the chines look? Even with me putting a lot of twist in them i cant see how they will ever fair correctly withou...

Re: Another Jet Squirt is born.

A little more progress. Steamed the first laminate of the sheers. You can see the 4 inch pipe in the left side of the picture that i used. A wallpaper steamer in one side and a garment steamer in the other side for an hour and a half. I will fit them after they sit over night.

I added 11 inches to the Form. Just enough to raise it up off the floor some and still be able to reach the center without a big stretch.
