  1. Regret to say but my friend had to stop making models (( He's got perfect tools and one of them is my Serving Machine 2.6 (motorized with "endless" attache). If you are interesting in purchasing this tool please drop him a message at "Marc Meyen marcmeyen@gmail.com" to negotiate fair price. thank you, Alexey
  2. Just for example. Stropped 7mm block using 0.3mm rope made by PL4-3 ropewalk using SM4 server. (Sorry for block quality, I haven't got good looking block at this time 🙂 ) (instruction video still to come)
  3. Dear all, I proud to present new series of serving machines - SM4. Full details on Shipworkshop.com Video to come. What's new: Fully redesigned and improved. New "rail" design allows you to move cheeks to any desired position along the length of the machine. Special design allows you to serve extra long ropes with or without "endless" option. Optional "endless" rope option for those who do not want to wind ropes up on handles. Motor option is easy mounting and helps you to automate serving process. Symmetrical design for right- and left-hand operators. Out-of-box ready for using. All operations are similar to my previous serving machines: serving ropes, making beckets, stropping blocks, making eye-splices, laying seizings, making stay mouse (diamond knot), other jobs where one rope is to be wound round the other.
  4. For those who care about relatives and neighbors Noise and vibration levels measured as close as possible to the machine.
  5. Hello, Bob, first of all, thank you so much for kind word and for the review I've never done by myself. You are right in most even all points in your review. Thank you again. Here are my answers which I post with pleasure: I use new and different materials as well as new 3D printing technology instead of acrylic laser cutting to make most parts. Why? Because it saves my time and works better in total assembly and utility. Makes it universal, you see, I use one platform for 3, 4, 6 strands. Allows me to make new parts in more free manner which can be resulted as redesigned other machines. I always try me best to simplify (genial is simple): for me - assembly process, for my lovely customers - utility, usefulness, plain and simple work with and so on. Oops... There is just one lead needed as you can see it in video guide. Two came from experiments and I forgot to remove closest to the head 🙂 There is no adapter disk anymore. To be honesty it's not needed even in previous models. I put it only for marketing purposes and for avoiding claims from some guys about 3 threads twisting process on 4stranded ropewalks. That was more simple for me to include this disk than explain why they do not need it. Sorry... As I said I forgot to change it to regular one-fair lead 🙂 No, this is the question of looking. If you need it I can send you new ones. You know, my spare parts cost not like M. Benz's 🙂 There is 3mm hole. I presume it could be enough for all ropes produced by PL4... Ok, I check how to make it 2holed version, for the first time you need to order another one or just drill bigger central hole. If you need to move first crossbar closer to the head you may replace white tubes with nuts. The only thing you have to remember - you can't move the second crossbar as result rope can cling to the threaded rods ends while going from the second crossbar to the traverse lead. That's why I use far fair-lead instead of close. Hope I made some points clear for you. Anyway, please feel free to contact me. cheers, Alexey

Series members PL4-3: 2, 3 strands, no core; PL4-4: 2-4 strands, with core. PL3.2 successor; Choosing the right machine Please consider followings choosing the machine: PL4-3 makes 3-strand ropes and cables little bit better and easier than PL4-4. 4-strand ropes are rarely used on models and can be made using another tool like our VR series rope making machines.

  12. Brass is easy to twist as cooper. But can be easier blackened. If you're not sure in brass softness you may anneal brass before using. Some times I blacken straight wire, some times result eye bolts/rings. I think you may blacken cooper wire before making rings using sulfuric ointment from drug store. Here I've used it to blacken cooper stripes. http://hms-vanguard.blogspot.com.by/2009/06/blog-post_02.html
  13. I use brass wire and then blacken eye bolt/rings made from. Blackening is simple process using blackening powder

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
