I thought they use to do that? I don't see any mention of it on their site.

Who else handles cutting of fins now days?

Thank you!

I know they used to do custom nose cones, but gave that up a few years back. I'd imagine that they don't do custom anything anymore. However, Nat Kinsey at Upscale CNC does. He is on here, but I can't think of his user name at the moment. [FONT=&quot]natkinsey@gmail.com[/FONT]

Nat at Upscale CNC, Wingarcher here on the forums, he does great work. Also does rings and bulkplates. Pretty much anything. I've had him cut two sets of fins and numerous rings and plates and some were complicated cuts.

Others that may do it:
Binder Design
Madcow
Wildman
MAC Performance

You can try contacting Bill at BMS, but I believe they no longer do custom projects unless its a commercial bulk type order.

+1 for both Carl and Nat. I've had numerous things done by both guys, and BOTH are top notch. Carl has a CNC laser and Nat does CNC routing. For balsa work or light ply, Carl would be my choice. Nat is my go to for thicker ply and fiberglass.
