    Don't mind that, have a few seamstresses in the family.
    Well wife is changing her little craft room for me to use while I'm off me pins. The car went off yesterday to be fixed, and today on way to hospital the loan car packed up. So a bit p****d off.
    Cheers Colin.

    No reason why not so farπŸ˜‰
    You'll have to get your trousers altered though 😁😁
    Will start on your converter board at the weekend so get on with your Sea Commander ASAP! All the best, Doug 😎

    Well Doug, have been to Ludlow today and saw a Sea Queen on the River, it was powered by a Supermarine, driving a 50mm x 50mm brass prop. Power supply was 12v 7ah sla using a 30 amp. esc. it looked fantastic on the water, even against the current it was moving ahead with full power. if my sea commander goes that well I'll be as happy as a dog with 2 tails.
    Cheers Colin.

    Hi Colin, that's only my considered opinion not 'Big news from Winnetka!'
    However, Taycol themselves seem to recommend a 1.75" x 2.25" prop, i.e. 44.45mm dia x 57.15mm pitch (=approx 1.3 pitch ratio). So I would give it a go with your 45x50 first and see how it goes. I'll fit appropriate fuses to the converter board for you. Cheers, Doug 😎

    That's great news Doug, I just thought that if I'm running below the maximum revs for a natural looking speed the motor would be under too much load.
    I'll luck for a low thrust prop as my 45mm dia has a 50mm thrust so I will try to get maybe a 40mm thrust. That should allow more free run for the motor.
    What's the verdict.
    Cheers Colin.

    Hi Colin, re your post in the scale speed thread-
    "I've got spare Viper marine 25 amp. So hopefully that will do. Also would you recommend a reduction box to give a fair scale speed as I don't want to overwork the motor."

    The Viper will be fine, I'll probably be using a little Viper Marine 10 on my Taycol Target in the fish cutter.
    Re gearbox: I doubt one is necessary. I would try to adjust the top speed more with the prop, mainly the pitch probably. The Supermarine is not particularly hi-revving, 4000 or so off load? if you reduce that your Sea Commander may behave more like a tug I suspect
    If you do decide to go that way PLEASE don't ask me to make it😁, I'm having enough trouble with the 1to1 gearing for my fish cutter😲
    Good luck with bathroom and OP. Fingers crossed for you that the works DO start in 6 weeks (the bathroom I mean!) πŸ˜‰ Cheers, Doug 😎

    Hi Martin,
    Apropos mini Milling machines; this is the one I use.

    Pics show using it to mill my new Sea Scout propshaft to secure the grub screws in the motor coupling.
    I just changed the tool holder from collets to a proper chuck. I also bought the little machine vice which clamps to the table, and the dividing head.
    There is also a CNC (putah driven version - ain't got that far yet, bit expensiveπŸ˜‰)
    But this little job has served me well for several years now, very happy with itπŸ‘ I also use it as a precision drill press; e.g. to make the new phosphor bronze brushes for my Taycol target renovation. See last pic.
    Have also recently used it to make the little gearbox so I can fit the renovated Taycol Target into my ancient Billing Danish fish cutter 'Gina2'. See, I don't just do the 'Grey Fleet', sometimes I also mess with wood😁 Cheers, Doug 😎

    Shucks! An I was hopin' you'd build me a little 4 cylinder diesel for me to run a brushed motor as a Genny for all the lighting on my ships! Or for the diesel electric propulsion on my Type 45. Now wouldn't that be cool!?😁

    BTW Some of Nick Carters tips an tricks showed me how to convert one of my tools to something that'll do what I want! So, out with the Proxxon mini-grinderπŸ˜‰ Cheers, Doug
    PS it wasn't a wrong steer cos it led me to all sorts of useful 'stuff' and above all helpful infoπŸ‘
