Chainplates now laminated with carbon fiber and cut


The laminating went well a week or so ago and I have finally plucked up the courage make the centre cut to create the two required parts. I simply used my jig saw with a blade for cutting metal and you can see the results above and below.


You can clearly see that the G10 thimble has been well seated in the putty and that I have the required thickness of wrapping tight around them.

I will wait to cut the slots for the deadeye hardware until I am more clear about those details.
