  2. Dear all, I proud to present new series of serving machines - SM4. Full details on Shipworkshop.com Video to come. What's new: Fully redesigned and improved. New "rail" design allows you to move cheeks to any desired position along the length of the machine. Special design allows you to serve extra long ropes with or without "endless" option. Optional "endless" rope option for those who do not want to wind ropes up on handles. Motor option is easy mounting and helps you to automate serving process. Symmetrical design for right- and left-hand operators. Out-of-box ready for using. All operations are similar to my previous serving machines: serving ropes, making beckets, stropping blocks, making eye-splices, laying seizings, making stay mouse (diamond knot), other jobs where one rope is to be wound round the other.

  7. I am at the stage of my build of starting to rig my San Francisco II. I started with the forward mast stay. It went better than I thought it would but in the end, after waxing and even flaming over a candle to fry off the frizz, they still have frizz... less but more than i wanted or expected. Lets just say from 10 feet away it looks great... upon close inspection it needs a shave I'm using AL supplied threads. I bought some needle point thread from Hobby Lobby and it has less frizz mostly since it's a cotton blend but some fuzz still exists. Is there something better? Is one company the go-to for thread/ropes? On websites pictures they all look good... So, what am I doing wrong or what am I not buying?
