Thank you. Did you not bump the medial side?
Hope we get more entries this month
I don't thinkhe did Micheal
Just got a chance to look as the shoe on my computer. A very nice shoe and I think the heels are pretty sweet.
Thank you Michael, it's a satisfying shoe to make, not hard but a lot of features
Alex is your inside to be the same width or slightly narrow than your outside ?
Gary, please take this as a compliment, your hands look like you have shod a lot of horses and made quite a few horseshoes in your days!
Thank you, Michael! (I think...)
Alex do you want as the specimen
shape as yours
were fullering starts and ends
and heels as yours?
Do as you do and feel is best. I'm looking for forging and nail fit. Would like the tapered edge of the ground surface to follow mine. Other than that, heels, fullering and nail placement is up too the forger. Only thing to take into account is the outside two nails need to be as far forward as you dare, to reduce pressure in the area which is fusing (The lateral cartilage which is most commonly affected in these cases on draft types)
Got mine made up this am. Will post up tonight
Got the apprentice michael to have a go
it should be up tonight
Alex, I must say it has been a fun shoe to make. Looks like you got your work cut out in the judging department. I hope a few more get posted as well.
It's a nice shoe, a lot of features but not a hard shoe to make. Yes I think I have and I agree hope there's a few more
I've been busy
I was just figured you were waiting for the last minute to blow us all away.
