I've been trying to tie up some waller wakers and assorted skaters thinking, I'll keep trying for those summer runs while the weather lasts. But the ones you can buy have deer hair spun around the split wings tilting forward. Do you have to massage it into place or what. As far as shaping the bodies, I stumbled on a neat trick. I use a beard trimmer, but the area between the barb and the shaft still has to be done by hand. Anybody have an idea for resources? What about classes here in Seattle. God knows I have no class and can always use more.
