  1. I have the opportunity to purchase the Microlux 7 X 16 mini-lathe with several accessories at a good price. How does this compare? Walt
  2. Guys, I am a newcomer to the use of table saws, though I do have the Byrnes saw. How is the saw sled used? What does it add to the basic saw? I have seen many references to using a table saw to cut mortices, tenons, and even rabbets. Is there a reference to or tutorial of these uses? Walt Haynes
  3. What is the best spindle sander for ship modelling? I'm talking bout a dedicate sander, not a set-up for a driil press or mototool. Thanks, Walt Haynes
  4. Thanks for the replies. If a scroll saw is used for cutting frames from 1/4 in. stock, what would be the preferred blade?
  5. I have limited space to work in, so a full-sized scroll saw on a stand is not going to work. Is there a good quality small scroll saw that is suitable, mostly for cutting out frames and other small parts? Proxxon, MicroLux? Thanks, Walt Haynes
  6. Chuck, is there a rigging plan or diagram showing how the anchor and buoy are rigged? I'm somewhat confused by the pictures. Walt Haynes
  7. Chuck, your rigging, particularly the way you secure blocks to spars and rigging, is so neat and without the messy knots one sees on other models. Could you produce a brief tutorial for those of us who are "out in the boondocks" with no local modelers' club to share techniques? Any help would be much appreciated. Walt Haynes Walterboro, SC
  8. Chuck, how did you make those perfect square holes in the bowsprit? It looks fantastic!! Walt

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.
