    Default Fleabite

    Just curious, how would you deal with a fleabite on a MMX shell bearing edge?. Wood-filler, polybond, any suggestions. Its a big bite, it got me worried. Its on the resonant head by the way.

    I went with some autobody filler after, did the trick quite nicely. Cheers.

    Wood filler is a little soft. Automotive body filler would be better but make sure your sanding skills are up to par so as to not alter the bearing edge itself.
