    I remove the tendons out of my goose feet and I thought this might help out anyone.
    In my opinion leaving all the tendons (Organic Material) it can cause a mess later.
    please wait till I am done to post anything.

    IS this the 8 guage wire? How long and the purpose to fill for the tendons that were taken out? You apoxie the bottom were you made the cut?

    I cut about a 3 inch piece of 8 Gauge wire and inserted it to rebuild the tendons.
    I didn't apoxie the hole cause of the position of the feet. It dried nicely for me.
