    CNC boat kits...?
    Once the machine is set up, we run into the two classic workshop requirements - tooling and work-holding. We hardly need a powerful spindle or Dremel for cutting balsa, which is what I am going to start with. I am going to use an old brushed boat motor with a small chuck added. But I need an easy way to hold the workpiece. Here I am making up an experimental vacuum holder. It's sized to take a 4" x 36" sheet of balsa. I hope to slip a blank sheet in, run the machine and take out the equivalent of a die-cut kit sheet an hour later. Note the requirement for everything to be massive and rigid, so that items can be held exactly in a repeatable position without movement while the cutting forces are applied....

    perhaps a picture showing what you are trying to do would enable us to give more directed advice...

    How can I expand the photos.
    Although the app is running very well on my android phone, I am unable to expand any of the photos. I used to be able to get full screen zoom on the old app, but it doesn't work on the new one. Am I doing it wrong. Cheers Colin.

    Turnigy Standard 9x transmitter
    Thanks. I will give it a try. If possible, could you tell me how your 4 channel switcher works. My next project has multiple additional features to deal with. Which one is compatible with the 9x. Thanks again.

    New Website Has Finally Arrived!
    Private messages bug should be fixed now Colin. Also... some faulty hyperlinks and pages redirecting to the wrong place. Think I've got to the bottom of that too. @John, are you trying to post in the media section or the forum? Stephen

    Editing Models in Harbour
    Thanks for the 'fix' StephenπŸ‘ Basically I like the new site presentation. Well done, helluva lotta work has gone into itπŸ‘πŸ‘ Now time to celebrate with a nice single malt instead of the coffee? Can recommend a Lagavulin or a Jura 😜 I've been wandering about the new site for several hours and have noted a few points that may need some attention - Some nice features which seem to have disappeared ☹️ Some new/old ones which don't quite seem to give the expected result. Will send you a report (with +'s as well as -'s πŸ˜‰) when I've finished stooging about. Would be nice to have the 'Site Related' forum topic back to do that! More soon, cheers, Doug 😎

    Planking
    To make the hull water tight I use a product called z-poxy it's a 2 part product mixed in hardener and resin of the same amounts and I use a layer of fibber cloth and them the z-poxy smooth as best you can about 30 min. time to use and then let harden over night at least 24 hours and them you can sand and finish with filler if needed or some more coats of z-poxy sanding after each coat.

    Painting over epoxy
    On fibreglass you could use an etching primer which is a modified alkyd primer that produces a sound base coat on wood, steel, fiberglass, aluminum surfaces. but you should use an ordinary primer before the top coat. Halfords do a spray etch primer.

    I didn't give it much thought when I said tap off 2x6volt in parallel. I will probably use small 4s lipo to power lights etc. Thanks fo pointing this out. Still a long way from installing ancillaries.

    Help identify
    I agree. Vaguely based on that prototype, judging by the foredeck, but with a lot of poetic license / simplification. Curious though that the builder chose a 'one off' for the basis but gave it a pinnace pennant number. Maybe he served on the pinnace!? Whatever, carry on boating folks, Doug😎
