Re: Hello from Vermont

Sapelle is great to work with. It can be gnarly in the grain pattern causing it to be prone to breakage during bending of chines and shears.

Re: Hello from Vermont

Welcome aboard! Good to have another woman builder. I also like Okoume. Joubert is the best. There are some Asian brands out there that seem to be fine. Best to look it over, though. Joubert no worries.

If you don't already have one, get a repair manual for that motor. It should have an electrical circuit diagram that you can trace out. You may have a bad ground or open circuit. Could be a poor connection in a plug.
