  1. Thanks Obsidean12, Your experrience help me in this. But Proxxon MF70 is expensive for a small tool in fact. But less than a real milling maching over 1 K$. I don't tried yet my setup with Dremel Workbench. But I have too an eyey on these : WEN 434TV 4.25-Inch Industrial Strength Benchtop and Drill Press Tilting Angle Vise WEN 4214 12-Inch Variable Speed Drill Press
  2. Hi, If I want to dream for a later purchase, should I only have my existent Dreml workstation plus Proxxon xy table, or it will be relevant to bring some money for a wood milling (or wood+metal) machine (Proxxon?) ?
  3. Thanks Allen, I found it on web. I hope this is a legit version. It seem to be free book from it's age. I will explore it this summer. I have a hurry at the job before vacancy.
  4. Hi Allan, your french sounds good enough. I am happy to see somes peoples in US exploring this language. Thanks.
  5. Yes, but may be too much reading at the same time... my brain don't support (LOL). I have these books: The knot tying bible by Colin JArman; The Marlinspike Sailor by Hervey GArrett Smith; The masting and rigging of english ships of war 1625-1860 by James Lees; Accastillage et gréement du modèle réduit d'un vaisseau de 74 cannons by Francis Jonet (Ancre book); Knots, Splices and Rope Work by A. Hyatt Verrill (Kindle); Ship Modeling Simplified: Tips and Techniques for Model Construction from Kits by Mastini, Frank. I have other books but not useful for knotting. With the infos that peoples gave to me here, I began to check the specific knots, etc. and found them. It is now more easy for me to sorted the reading. Sorry for the english this morning. Wefalck, my english is not as good as your's. I envy you. Michel

  11. Hi, My modeling ship library in increasing and I have one problem. When to use specific knots for specific use. Lots of book show the basic of knotting, often don't show how to finished the ending of it. Furthermore, it is a mess to understand where on my ship to use specific knots, except for the well known specific knots for shroud and deadeyes. There is my question : Can we found a dedicated book or PDF or video to show the complete knotting action for all the specific knots in used for ship modelling and indicating where to used it ? Yes, really a newbie question, but my head is not able to make classified all the information found. Thanks MIchel
