  1. When using a part off tool make certain it is absolutley square to the work axis. Set the heigth a few thou lower than center, it will leave a tiny nub but it will cut easier. Also LOW RPM when parting. And do not ever use a tailstock when trying to part off a tool. As for finish, find a tool with a nice small nose radius and watch your feedrate. You should know what it is in inches per revolution and play with it a bit to get the best finish. And remember RIGIDITY is king. The stiffer and more solid your setup the better, Have any direct questions ask away. I have 30 years machine shop experience. Jeff

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.
