Hi All,

I'm looking into producing a Carbon fibre Spinner. I was hoping that someone, preferably in Australia, would have a spare, nicely shaped spinner that they might lend me to be the master for a new mould?

Cheers,
Bryan

I have a mold and have made several CF spinners ... the biggest challenge is balance. I recommend a vacuum bag or pressure bag to equalize the resin.
