    Blade wrapping.

    Sorry Claude ,but my days of differential equations ended about 50 years ago,but I see the point(I think). A hole drilled in the end of a blade creates adrop in pressure which would remove, or help to,get rid of pressure built up in the blade.

    Blade wrapping.

    Good idea,(the little hole to relieve the pressure).This stuff sticks like the proverbial sh+t to a shovel. I bought some to put some stripes on my motorhome and gots loads left so might just give it a wirl. If I do will let you know the result. Thanks Claude for that idea.
