minding the gap

I want to learn to do bigger gaps. my problem is that i can’t think of
things that work very well for gaping across. what are some good things to
gap across to practice on. someone said that railroad tracks are good, any
othere ideas?

thanks peter

Hi,

Gapping from rail to rail on a traintrack might not be the best learning
location- it’s pretty easy to pinch flat on narrow objects.

Pallets are good if you can obtain a couple from a supermarket- just put
them as far apart as comfortable and then gradually increase the gap as
necessary.

On my basement floor (I have a somewhat large unfinished basement) I’ve
got strips of masking tape every 6" which I used for practicing gapping
during the winter.

One could also get two sticks or pieces of string and lay them apart on
the ground.
