  2. Greetings Jack Dusty and a welcome from an ex" wafu".
  3. Greetings Dean from MIKE in Milton Keynes. Once upon a time I serviced aircraft on the old Grey Funnel Line.
  4. Greetings Phil from Mike in Milton Keynes.
  5. I love mine so much that I want a second that always cross cuts and the other is the ripper!
  6. Hello Frosty, welcome! Where in the Uk are you? Best wishes, Mike in MK.
  7. Retired mine some time back. it is now fitted with a blade suitable for metal, rough cutting at that, and lives under my bench waiting for the rare occasions that I cut metal. I fell foul of the buying cheap and regretting it. lesson learned. I now have a Byrnes. Mike.
  8. Excellent video and a superb vessel. Thanks for the heads up. Mike.
  9. Greetings Richard, good luck with your build. Mike in MK.
  10. Greetings John, Welcome. I knew a girl once in Harrogate but that now seems so long ago! Mike.
  11. All sorted now. Jim Byrnes has kindly offered to send me a spacer with my current order. My TC blade inventory is now complete. My new spacer will allow me to use HSS slitting blades from Chronos, thanks Keith, when I need to. Once again thanks for all the input. End of thread.. Mike.
  12. Thank you Mark but it was the finding rather than the searching that was giving me trouble! Thank you Keith. You hit the nail on the head when you mentioned carbide tips and I have just ordered from Jim Byrnes. I was trying to avoid this due to the postage costs but I gave in rather than waste anymore time. The slitting blade info that you sent will be very useful in the future and I thank you for it. I do not have a lathe but will search for the appropriate reducing washer at some point. Many thanks to one and all who responded to my request. Best wishes, Mike.
  13. Thank you Thistle. I could buy direct from Jim Byrnes but I am trying to source blades either here in the UK or in Europe in general. I appreciate your input though. Mike.
  14. Can any UK member tell me where to buy suitable blades for my Jim saw on this side of the pond? I have had no luck so far in my searches on line. Any help would be greatly appreciated. My thanks in anticipation, Mike.

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.
