I believe you may find this tool a remarkable replacement for the Fin Kwik. I have not posted anything in a week or so, because I was waiting to test the prototype. I've built a couple 3 fin models, and a 4 fin is getting built tonight. We have only got BT-50 arms now, just to run the prototype thru its paces. I'll post a couple pictures Sunday in the original thread listed above.

The problem with the Fin Kwik, IMHO, is that it was not all that easy to use, and it really was optimized for one thickness of fins. All other thicknesses will not be exactly perpendicular to the tube. (Close, but not exact.)

Stay tuned ...
