    Justifiably perhaps. I'll keep my head down.
    Just trying to "look on the bright side."
    Dumb suggestion deleted.

    Doug, I think if I passed on your suggestion he'd seek you out and attack you!

    The local water company were responsible for my cellar flooding and "drowning" my "Sea Queen", they said to claim off my home insurance. Along with loss of all my dark room equipment and my radio control gear and sundry other kit it came to over a thousand pound. it took over three months to sort out.

    Thanks, Richard, sorry missed this post. I will let my chum know. Currently the basement where he does his models is flooded thanks to the water company's broken main!

    real gentleman who started selling timbers for modelmakers, but had to stop that as he got a sensitivity to the dust of woods, but he also had a range of amazingly good stuff for amazingly low prices, including various stanchions. I bought all the remaining portholes from him because I hate glazing portholes! I have tiny working compasses, rigging scissors, tiny woodscrews, rigging cord, bottle screws, all sorts from him and all cost me very little. Alas, health issues have caused him to cease trading and he has been flogging of his stock on ebay. A great loss.

    Hi Martin, My stanchions were pre-drilled, from Graupner ca 30 Years ago.
    Never 'eard of Modelling Timbers. Timber stanchions!!!😲
    I "only" had to drill the holes in the decks (thought that was what you meant), there were enough of them. Much worse though was fitting all the two part portholes 😑 Since fibre glassing the the hull I have to do that all over again😭
    Frankly I think anyone who gets so many stanchions made as castings without pre-drilled rail holes need his bumps feeling.
    I thoroughly agree ref mini drills, too easy to snap fine drill bits. πŸ‘
    For precision / repetitive drilling I use my Proxxon mini milling machine as a drill press. if I need more than one of something I knock up a simple jig (usually from hardwood taken from demolished old furniture) to hold the work piece in the machine vice attached to the milling machine cross bed.
    I took the irritating collet fixing off the mill and fitted a real 3 jaw chuck πŸ˜‰
    Happy 'Vincenting', All the best, Doug 😎
