Theres not really any 3d printing services around here that I am aware of but I would rather make it by hand anyway. It gives me the chance to alter and optimize things as I go which I have already done several times already.

Not much to show for this week. Put in 3 and a half hours before my jigsaw broke/died of old age so I still have some pieces of the blades still uncut from their mdf.
I did fully cut out one side which has been glued together but needs a bit of touch up work so not much point in a photo of that.

I have brought some bondo and epoxy putty to start evening out sections and finishing up the blade that is cutout until I can buy a new jigsaw.
I will have some pictures next weekend of that work and the completed first blade.

Its been a while since my last pictures so its time to update you all on how the blade is coming along.

Day 7 was spent with 3 hours sanding mdf, filling with epoxy putty and then after some time beginning the sanding on the putty.
I have to say that plummers putty which is what I was using until I can get some proper putty smells terrible and thanks to the sanding, the dust gets everywhere and leave me smelling of the stuff for the rest of the day let alone clogging up the sanding wheels.



Day 8 just had an hour and a bit spent finishing up the sanding, ready for bondo.

Yesterday I took half a day off work for my Birthday and spent anoter 2 hours doing some touch up sanding and then begain the filling.



Hopefully this weekend I will be able to finish the basic filling and have my first piece primed and ready for detail sanding.
