  1. ??? 90 degrees C ....?? ... that's not far from the boiling point. Can't even begin to imagine the discomfort at such levels.............
  2. I can think of a few more captions but this seems to be quite positive and better to leave well enough alone.........Happy New Year!
  3. There is a fine line between the efficiency resulting from being totally organized and the total euphoria one feels when the elusive tool that has eluded you for quite some time, finally presents itself at the most opportune time. I still struggle to find the happy medium..........................!!!!!!
  4. If it works for you and you feel better for the investment, then that is all that matters. Just lost a good portion of my cyano because of a mishap so I understand the challenges with spillage.
  5. Yeah,... double the cost with additional shipping charges. My empty soup cans will for now...............
  6. I look at this and know I need one.... price is reasonable too. But I live in Canada and the currency exchange is brutal. Now I can do with out.........
  7. Absolutely stunning achievements on both counts. It would be awesome if one were able to capture video from the locomotive viewpoint as it travels through the scenery.
  8. It's mind boggling how I can struggle to complete the simplest of tasks during some modelling sessions and than I see the skills and dedication that some others bring to the table.
  9. Unfortunately, shipping up north from Menards is a deal breaker for me.
  10. Nice.... and I checked amazon and found the same unit rebranded but at double the cost? Go figure?? https://www.amazon.ca/Vibration-Free-Bench-Disc-Sander/dp/B07SFZGHVQ/ref=sr_1_9?keywords=5"+bench+top+disc+sander&qid=1573327510&sr=8-9

    Dont Ever...

    This is good to know and will certainly follow the advice.

    Dont Ever...

    Had this mishap with a full size saw back in the day when my experience with the big boy versions was lacking. It was also a just nick for about 5 stitches but I recall not wanting to check the damage once I grabbed hold of the wound. Felt like a sledge hammer upon contact as opposed to a knife cut. Lesson learned.
  13. In addition to the aforementioned,... time and patience is often overlooked as a go to tool. A slow and methodical technique can do wonders. I've clamped metal straight edges to the marked opening as an aid as well.

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.
