Warning by onetenor Commander   Posted: 6 hours ago
Going back to the warning about the knives and foot injury. A safe way to keep knives handy around the building board .Have a block of expanded polystyrene or Oasi Or similar .When not in the hand stick the knife into the block. To sharpen blades use a "Water of Ayr Stone ". I find nothing better . John O/T👍

Thanks R.N.

Warning by onetenor Commander   Posted: 2 days ago
YOU SHOULD be wearing safety foot wear or at least stout shoes/boots anyway. The knives could have gone into your foot as they fell .Safety awareness at all times please

Sea Queen refurbishment by onetenor Commander   Posted: 12 days ago
Even after Trike not all of the oil may be removed from the wood and could show up later . Trike works really well on metals and fabrics but is hit and miss on wood. Good luck all the same. John

Lindow common. by onetenor Commander   Posted: 1 month ago
Liverpool was well off for pools dotted about in odd places Known mainly to anglers.Plus a mere now drained in the Everton area. But mainly the parks ,Nearly all of them have a model boating pool or a part of the main lake accessible for model boats however due to vandalism at Walton Hall park the clubhouse there had to close. As a result most sailors use Newsham Park pond which the council look after. Or did. I've not been there for years as I now live in N.Wales so don't know how it is now.IIRC there was never a weed problem at any of them either

Lindow common. by onetenor Commander   Posted: 1 month ago
Any idea why the pool got fenced off? Crying shame👍

Fairplay X - Plastic Magic! :-) by onetenor Commander   Posted: 1 month ago
Funny enough pear drops are actually flavoured with a small amount of Amyl Acetate solvent. The stuff that smells so nice. It is also a brilliant cellulose solvent.I wouldn't drink it though👍👍

Aeronaut Pilot Boat by onetenor Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
Early in this thread I saw Depron mentioned as being the material of the build Was this so ? If so what glue was used in the build. UHU por or similar brand is usually recommended.Re Glueing metal to plastic good old Gorilla Glue is the one Much cheaper then those others and has good gap filling too.👍

Paint removal by onetenor Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
If the deck is also GRP the best bet is to plank it with fine veneer strips then varnish that. If it needs filler between the planks use a black one. Carbon black or similar added to the filler .Brown would also look smart.Artists powder paint could also be used and be cleaner to handle.Lite filler from B&Q is very good .Light and easy sanding and I believe slightly flexible so should not crack out.

How do I resolve my varnish problem? by onetenor Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
A layer of the lightest glass cloth applied with Ronseal water based floor varnish / sealer.Rubbed down between coats. /Use enough coats to fill the weave / grain of the cloth . . this should still show the grain through the coats and leave a brilliant shine. this can be polished with T/cut once thoroughly hard if so desired.

Paint removal by onetenor Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
Sonar is right. Do not try to sand it ALL off as you risk damaging the gel coat of GRP Almost impossible to rectify .BE WARNED! John

Re buying new crystals I don't think they are too dear. Last time i looked they averaged £ 6/ 7 For Sanwa and Futaba Xtals

Glue Applicator by onetenor Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
If not Bang Good try Gear Best LOL👍😁😁😁

Glue Applicator by onetenor Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
Not quite the same thing but something useful When using say a Bottle of Aliphatic or P.V.A. or similar glue it can get abit messy with lack of control of the flow. Bang good sell small plastic dispenser bottles which you can decant you glue into from your bigger bottle.Makes things a lot neater. Very cheap too

Couplings by onetenor Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
Talking of brushed motors I like the /Graupner 400's /600's/800' s Lovely motors. I think.

Couplings by onetenor Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
Yes I meant a permanent magnet motor ( Permag ) and know there are no field coils.Hence my puzzlement regarding reversing

Couplings by onetenor Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
Just thinking ! If C/V joints are available for model cars it may be possible to make up a coupling for a boat. Anyone know if these are available?
