Two part Epoxy Andy 👍
But I prefer to glue the tube rather than the shaft! 😲😁

Hi Doug,

Is the gearing going to be reduced?
Or it going to be 1 to 1?
3 to 1 would be good, right!

Generally 2 part epoxy unless the hull is made of some strange plastic material. If you have gaps to fill try Milliput ( 2 part epoxy putty).

Mornin Ed, 1 to 1. Basically cos that's what I've got in those big nylon cogs. Want to use the nylon ones cos they are wide, so more freedom of movement aligning them, and they should be quieter than metal gears.
Think they came from old printers! Bought a batch of assorted cogs and pulleys at a flea market here years ago. Now they're coming in handy😊
Main purpose is to get the drive down to the propshaft which is mounted very low down in the hull as can be seen in the pics above 😲
Cheers, Doug 😎

I bought one of those bags of gears and got just enough to make a model rope making machine.

Rather than a model of a rope making machine, Doug, this is a machine for making model rope. Always wanted one, in case I ever make that marvellous wooden ship model.
