Something interesting to put on my blog!

That's just goofy, I love it!

Ned Crossely reminds the Peconic Puffin that you can buy a very similar simulator from the venerable Calema Windsurfing...here's a link.

I'm excited about building one. Does one start with just 2 plywood sheets and use a router to cut the bearing races, or, is it better to cut the circle and ring from separate plywood sheets? Also, what is the size and contour of the bearing race? (I would like to get it right the first time).

Bill, I have no idea...you might try clicking on links on Eva's site and emailing her. To my eye it looks like the bearing races are a circle and ring cut from a seperate sheet. That's what I'd try.

    "It's good to have a shredmobile" my friend Caldwell said, so I made one. It's a Ford E150 cargo van done up with lumber and k-mart plastic boxes.
