    tradegy at the tip.

    While rounding the spine, I got the tip into the wheel and busted off about 3/8 of an inch. Major bummer. I started to reprofile the blade but I thought that I better wait until tomorrow. Some times you have to put things down and start again the next day.

    Super cool Devin.

    Edit: Doh! Hope you can fix the tip issue without spending all day on it.
