  1. Maybe site management can explore that idea further. I have seen group buys on other sites that provided members with quality products at a discount.
  2. Great kit. I would take it but I already have one in my stash. List it on eBay for $100 and it should sell pretty quickly.
  3. Belaying pins could be made from wood, iron or brass. They were not painted as the paint would wear off pretty quickly from the rope rubbing on the pin.
  4. I have one like this but different brand name. Made in China but once the blade was sharpened it works really well. Think I paid $9.95 for it on eBay.
  5. I will take this one if still available. PM sent Rigging Period Ship Models - Petersson. ISBN 1-86176-061-2. $8.00
  6. My wife the artist put me on to this box for storing .5oz (14ml) bottles. She uses it for alcohol ink but it works fine for paint bottles of the same size. https://www.amazon.com/Ranger-Tim-Holtz-Alcohol-Storage/dp/B079KVZGY9
  7. Copper can be plated directly on to non-conductive surfaces. The process is called electroless copper plating. It is a fairly simple process but does require the use of formaldehyde as a reducing agent. Using this process a thin layer of copper can be plated over almost any surface. Electroless copper plating is used to make printed circuit boards. The advantage is that the metal layer is uniform over uneven surfaces including inside holes. plated items can be used as is or as a base for electroplating with other metals like nickel. BTW brass electroplating is possible. Caswell s
  8. No responses to my inquiry. I went ahead and bought a Bucktool scroll saw anyway as it had pretty good reviews on Amazon and had more features than other saws in my price range. Saw arrived today and first impressions are very good. Haven't cut anything with it yet but after setup and blade installation I gave it a dry run. Sitting loose on a concrete floor it ran very quite with very little vibration. The saw is rather heavy with a cast iron base and table. Table insert is steel and fits very well. Blade installation is easy and the air blower actually works but not sure if it
  9. Not mine, just saw it on eBay and thought someone might be looking for one. https://www.ebay.com/itm/The-Laughing-Whale-The-Square-Toed-Frigate-Wooden-Ship-Model-Kit-No-124-Boxed/392901137512?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3Dfe97e1f9b7e440ea854e282df544f815%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dnone%26sd%3D392900052305%26itm%3D392901137512%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A340f2f7f-d9e5-11ea-974e-5ef97f0ce4b3|parentrq%3Ad0f9de9f1730ad397f240289ffffcab6|iid%3A1
  10. Interesting article. https://www.jpost.com/israel-news/christian-muslim-symbols-found-in-7th-century-shipwreck-in-israel-636389
  11. A very quick google search brought up several furniture joiners in New Jersey (I think that is where Chuck is). Perhaps someone that knows what to ask could contact them and find out if they are open to do the milling for Chuck, assuming Chuck approves of the idea.
