  1. from google search: Unbleached Titanium White is a warm beige tinted white. This oil paint can be used to lighten colors with a different effect than regular whites.
  2. I have been given a very small quantity of wood (one piece 1" x 4" x 12" or 25.4 x 101 x 305mm) and I haven't a clue what it is. Can anyone help me identify it. it is a more dark than light shade of brown, with short streaks of white in it. The surface was stained and the end has something like a glue on it so I cannot see the end grain. I cut a few strips as I thought I'd use it but then I saw the actual colour pattern and now it's got me wondering. There is no specific scent and no appreciable weight to it.
  3. AHOY neighbour! (Nice to see you back) Sort of looks like that's what she needs to fall into place doesn't it.
  4. Sorry about that each image was uploaded with the source in it's name... eg: Truss Parrel pg105-5 (-5 means 5th image from the page) The Masting + (and) Rigging of ESOW (English Ships of War 1625-1860 by James Lee) If you copy them out you will have the info I thought for some reason it would display if you hovered your mouse over them
  5. there are a couple more but I fear I may be pushing things a bit with my photos from Index - The Masting and Rigging of English Ships of War 1625-1860 by James Lee:
  6. and last bit... from The Masting and Rigging of English Ships of War 1625-1860 by James Lee pg 105

  8. does this help? Top Gallant Yard from The Masting and Rigging of English Ships of War 1625-1860 by James Lee, pg 95
  9. Copper? I have been considering strips of black paper as there will be 148 of them and no one will be the wiser. I do admire anyone that sticks to it.
  10. I know! I know! It's your engineering background. Me too!! Our type seems to always gravitate towards the spectacular as opposed to KISS (Keep It Simply... Silly?) Now that we have to build it ourselves we need to learn a new skill set... seeing the forest for the trees. 😉
  11. Thanks for the info Mike It looked like the glue was in the hole first and seemed awkward.
