    Trapper2016 Thanks for this awesome forum!

    Hello everyone,

    Hope your having a good weekend. For the last few years i have been looking everywhere for a Lionfish blank that would be suitable to use in a pedestal mount. I have checked with everyone i could think of, and still have not had any luck. I was messaging a gentleman who lived in Florida and was a member of this board last year about a mold his company was making, but he seems to have either not finihsed it or is no longer visiting this forum. Either way I have never heard back from him.

    I currenly have a lionfish blank i bought off ebay years ago but it is in really horrible shape. And i mean horrible shape and is really beond my skill to repair. I have run it by a few people to see if they could work their magic on it, and i get the same response of "that would be a ton of work to fix". And it really would be. So if possible i really would love to buy a quality lionfish blank that could be used for a pedestal mount. Size is not important. The only thing i am concerned with is that it is a quality blank that a begineer could work with.

    If you have any leads or may have one yourself, please message me. I have been trying to find one of these for years.

    Thanks for your time
    Chris
