Re: Soft Sole Replacement

One trick is to finish with a sheet of store bought fiberglass.
Just bed it in epoxy as it is very smooth when done as long as you don't need a compound curve.

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
