  • Sail Battens

    I have several questions related to sail battens. These battens are inserted into pockets on the leach of a sail. Their purpose is to help the roach of the sail to take a proper shape. I recently broke one of the battens. The dimentions are roughly 27' L x 2' W by 3/8' tapering to 1/8'. I know I can get a replacement/substitute fiberglass batten but I would rather have one made out of wood. The wood could be a hard wood, hickory,cedar or oak. Do any of you know anyone that makes wooden battens? Would you have any suggestion as to the wood used to make battens? Any information you could give me would be certainly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your input on this matter. Sincerely, Bill T.

    Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.

    I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

    Yes, they can be used for hair. If they are made a little larger than the original, the shawl pins will work great in the hair!...
