Vision of me shaping cutting tail lift into a hand shape using a Skil 100

Vision of me shaping cutting tail lift into a hand shape using a Skil 100 Planer. Im starting the cut on full depth then blending it out by sliding the cutting depth lever. The power cord is wrapped over my wrist & arm to lessen the chance of running over it with the cutting blades & taking myself out !!! Over the years I’ve actually run over it a lot ,,, luckily only cutting into the protective black cord & not touching the wires inside it !!!! I had the cord replaced recently as I’d been using it with electrical tape repairs on all the sections I’d run over .. I kept getting told this was kinda dangerous ….., Skil planers come with a really long base that protrudes way beyond the handle. As you can see the base is short finishing under the handle. When I bought it in Hawaii over 40 years ago the first thing I did was chop the base off with a hack Saw. The short base fits a surfboards curves better than a long one. Skil 100 planers have been out of production for years, They are Aluminium & were built to last. It’s nearly impossible to find or buy a used one. @skil100 @fiberglasshawaii @quiksilver @mikypicon @anothery @stephenisbelly @euroglass @limowall @sammygosling @samueltgriffiths @yeahbranchy @dannyteheuheutukino @benny_big @mikereilly1 @fuzzy66 @boardriderscapbreton @boardridersmalibu @boardriderscoolangatta @boardriderstorquay @boardridersericeira @surfboardempire @surfview @markrichardssurfboardsapparel #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardsshaping #markrichardsshapes #mrtwinfin #mrretrotwinfin #twinfinsrule #twinfinfever #twinfinfevercatchit #twinfinsforever #mr1980retroprotwinfin #mr1980retroprotwinfinmodel #mr1980retrotwinfin #mr1980retrotwinfinmodel #skil100 #skil100planer
