My nearest hobby store did not have any Bowsies and when they said 21 Bowie’s would be $18 I started looking to see how to make some from what I had on hand.

If you have surplus servo arms cut them down and use them.
great idea.If you need any I have lots.You can have some even for future projects.

Donnieboy we gotta get your Harbour photos and personal photo done. I can help you do this.

I used kite string to rig the boat, dipping the cut string in liquid glue to keep it from fraying. When dry, the line went easily through the holes.

I know these home made Bowie’s are not as nice as the purchased ones, but they will do just fine for awhile.

specs for them.This way I can post them with the info on hand.
Thanks Ron.
