Alan..Mark..Chris..Tony..Derek
Thank you very much for your very welcome and heartwarming words of support. Knowing that I am among fellow modelers such as you only spurs me on more to accomplish my build successfully..
Perhaps one of you could advise me of where I can obtain the solution that is needed for burnishing brass black for the next task in my build. I have tried Cornwall model boats without joy? Any specific title or brand, much appreciated?? Thank you all once again..Top lads all!!

Hi there fellow modelers...Thank you good peeps for your ever welcome comments, much appreciated believe me.BigGrin

Just thought that I'd mention this as I am at that stage where I had to tidy up and paint the 60 dead eyes in issue 96, and in doing so, found it a bit awkward dipping them individually in a pot of paint coat them. I came across the idea of attaching two lengths of 25 mm masking tape sticky side facing upward and securing them flat against a scrap piece of wood. I could stick all 60 dead eyes to the masking tape to keep them stationary while I painted them...If this idea has been floated before in these hallowed halls then my apologies




Then it was the wire that needed cutting..Believe me, with my arthritic hands this would be a bit awkward too so I knocked up this little jig, again out of scrap. It is two pieces of wood set 35 mm apart, one piece with a hole drilled in it through which to feed the wire until it touches the opposite piece of wood...The wire could be then be cut at exactly 35 mm in length...

Well, that's it for now shipmates..off to figure out if there is an easy way of wiring the dead eyes..Hope you all stay safe...Take care now and catch yer later...

Good tip there John.

I am 57 now (feeling because when i fill in those online surveys I am 1 box away from the end :-)

Spent years and still am on a computer keyboard in my work and i am beginning to suffer the results of that.

Enjoying your updates and really nice to see you back online as you were in and the start so really nice to see another long termer still updating.

Amazing how the years have past by but good to see we can still look back on those older posts and reflect.

Hope your build continues well.

Tony

Hi Jonny, BigGrin

That`s a lot of deadeyes there.Crying


I feel for you with the problem with your hands and wondered if a wire guillotine may be beneficial for you as there is no having to squeeze on cutter handles just press down on a lever. It has an adjustable gauge so you cut exactly the same length every time up to 65mm and you get a square cut end not pointed as with wire cutters.There are five different wire gauge holes. It has a drilled base also, so it can be fitted to a larger base plate or work bench.

I purchased one a while back now and have attached a link for you and a couple of pics of mine.

Hope this may be of help.

That cutter looks a nice piece of kit, Derek.
I have always had problems with getting a straight clean cut on wire and to be able to cut more than one at a time is also a help.
