This is the ricie of the Jackson.
It has been removed and cleaned up.
This photo was taken up against a window
with the light shining through.
Unfortunately it will not be a clear
when it is re bonded to the board.

At some stage a plastic fin was crudely fitted
into the original Safeset finbox.
Making it impossible to use the finbox.

There were a couple of options.
Remove the old box and fit a new/second hand Safeset box.
Or fill the old box and set a new fin on top.
After removing a Safeset box from a donor board.
Which was a major job.
And caused some damage.
Filling the box and setting a new fin was by far the better option.
So the old box was cleaned up.
A 3mm rebate was cut into the box to make a clean edge.
Then filled with pigmented resin and milled fibre.
This was then capped with a two layers of 4oz cloth on the bias.

New fin set and filler coated.
Ready for sanding.

Once the four logs were glued up.
The middle two logs were glued up with the pre shaped stringer.
The logs were then planed down to the stringer.
