Allen Screw Removal by BOATSHED Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 days ago
You could always try super gluing a near as allen key into it and then try undoing it. If it doesn't some out you can remove the allen key with deactivator before you try anything else that would damage it too far. Or try using a Dremel tool and cut a slot for a screwdriver.

Assembly by Ianh Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 25 days ago
Hi All Would suggest you dry assemble with the cabin sides as my forward bulkhead was out by 2 Degrees. When I cut the pieces out I used a new Dremel Moto Saw as my old srollsaw from Dremel was condemned due to inavailability of blades. Like I say not enough clamps Have ordered the decking from Jotika this is extra and allows you to plank the deck and cockpit more realistically.

PS Waverley by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Don't have to imagine it Martin, I know it, from all the stanchions on my H class destroyer 😉 Couldn't get the ship under a pillar drill. Free-handing a Dremel type drill is more likely to bend the bit. Did my destroyer in batches and amused meself with summat else in between . Each to his own, Happy pillaring (never tried drilling a pillar meself 😁) Have you tried PMing david greatbatch to see what he's got plan-wise? Cheers, Doug 😎

PS Waverley by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Yes, that's what I liked; well populated and 'Alive'. Makes all the difference, especially for an excursion ship. 😉 If he uses a Dremel or similar he'll probably break lots 😡 I use a small pin chuck for my 0.3 - 1.0mm drills, gives more control and 'feel'. @ Marky; thought I remembered you paddlin' about somewhere😉 just got the ship wrong 🤔 How's it goin' matey? Now back to prepping terrace and garden for winter 😡 me poor ol' back! Cheers All, Doug 😎

Elaine motor update/assembly pictures by onetenor Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
'Twas on the good ship P@@@s Eh! Now P.C.'d as Venus I think. He He. I remember those trips to away fixtures LOL and coming back with the crates in the gangway. I.P.A. and Newky brown .Also some cider. We couldn't recall the score. Ha!😎 Massey-Ferguson you mean matey re the tractors.Re bild vs Build Try tapping in Alu Build and it might correct itself and give you the correct site. It might work. My comp is playing up a bit and when I Google something it comes up and immediately jumps to alternative sites and won't settle on the one I want. Damned nuisance. P.S. If you can find the Mano Mano site they sell packs of small rubber buffer/ polishers. Use in Dremel et Al. Great on ali ,brass, copper etc. Also paintwork.👍

Multi tool Kits by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi Brianaro I have a HILDA from Banggood. I third the price and all the fittings fit the Dremel. The Hilda looks the same as the Dremel with a different badge. The Hilda is powerful and with a speed control as well. The Hilda kit comes will a flex lead as well. I am very happy with mine. Canabus

Multi tool Kits by Brianaro Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
Difficult to know, unless you buy Dremel most of these sort of tools seem to be of similar quality. I’ve found that some (regardless of cost) ware out fairly quickly. This set isn’t a lot of money so not much to loose if not up to much, but I think you will get your money’s worth out of most if not all of the items

Cabin/Superstructure by muddy Admiral   Posted: 4 months ago
Upperworks, this launch has a long cabin and a well deck ( Gin Parlour ).. Sides were traced out and cut from 1.5mm ply, internal formers are 3mm ply, spacers and struts Obechie, the cabin front is formed with Balsa which will be covered in 1.5mm ply, all the external faces have been veneered in Mahogany, except the roof which will be probable a piece of ply. The old favourite 1 inch ring saw came into play again for the cutting out of the windows. Applied the veneer after cutting out the windows, have found this easier and it tends not to split and crack the veneer, so one has to recut the window openings but its a very quick and easy job if you use a 1/2 inch drum sander in something like a Dremel hobby type drill. I,m afraid we have the oposite of Rain stopped play , its Sun stopped play at the moment.. You may notice the "Old Batteries" and cans, used as weights to hold down / compress the veneer, also the Jig saw, bolted to a piece of ply and then clamped into the B&D Workmate, I aint got room for a bandsaw which i would love, so this lash up has done me proud for a few years. Regards Muddy....

Exciters/transducers by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Thanks John, have a good set set of milling, routing, grinding, drilling, finishing, polishing tools for my Dremel and Proxxon. Thinks! We should continue this in the Hobby Chit Chat section; thread 'Useful Tools'? before we overload Neville's thread too much! Will reply re emoticon and keyboard in 'Anything else'! Cheers, Doug BTW: This link should work folks!

LED Tug Mast Navigation Lights by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
"Brush painting transparent colors always seems to result in a very blotchy finish." That's EXACTLY the experience I made and why I recommend drip dry😊 Happy Dremeling 😁

LED Tug Mast Navigation Lights by pittsfieldpete Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
Hey, Doug: Thanks for the excellent advice. The “dip/dry/repeat if necessary” technique for coloring LEDs makes the most sense. Brush painting transparent colors always seems to result in a very blotchy finish. Now that I can see well again I think I’ll turn my attention to removing the molded-on ladder rungs inside the mast. Sounds like a job for my little cordless Dremel. Thanks, Pete

Link to the pillar drill please. Maybe it's better than my wobbly Dremel thing😉 G'night John Ciao, Doug ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Windows, stoopid question. by Westquay Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
If you have a lot of cutting of steel sheet to do, no doubt, but the setting up of a die safely outside (sparks, etc.) and the buying of discs that will be worn almost away, not to mention the doing of it is hassle, especially with a Dremel. As Doug found, Tracy Tools were easy to deal with and he'll have a set of threading tools, all I assume with splits and dimples, like the one I just did his shaft thread with. I already have several sets of useful bits for my Minidrill, which is a Proxxon or one of three others that have cropped up in Lidl's over the years, cheap. The Proxxon has a Jacobs chuck, the others, alas, are collets. I find the discs useful where I can't get a saw in. But slitting a die? No thanks, in my world that's hassle. Cheers, Martin

Windows, stoopid question. by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
Good tip Mike 👍 thanks. What hassle Martin? Reichelt are on my side of the channel and the delivery is much cheaper😉 Could use an angle grinder for other jobs too, but not the huge things in most DIY stores. Will check what Reichelt has. As for Dremel; recently bought a set of their Speed-Clic cutting, sanding and polishing attachments. Amongst them were a couple of diamond tipped metal discs. Haven't tried 'em yet though. Anyway new proper cutting dies and a decent holder, + tail-stock die holder are on their way from Tracy. So I should be armed for the next task in this area - threading the 4 shafts on my Belfast 😊 Cheers, Doug 😎

Windows, stoopid question. by mturpin013 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
Doug Dremel do cut off wheels which will cut through a die, it may take a couple of discs. However if you have a 4" angle grinder you can also get cut off discs at 0.8mm thick which would do the job. Dremel - http://www. style='background-color:yellow;'> Angle grinder -
