  1. I've just made my first rope on my new Syren Rope Rocket and thought I'd share my experiences. First thing to say is that I was delighted with the result. I'd had a little previous experience with the more basic 'handraulic' version from Model Expo so I had some idea how to make rope, but even so I was surprised just how well my first efforts turned out. The line on the left was my first effort - three single strands of the t

  3. I acquired two old pencil sharpeners and while looking them over I suddenly saw a ropewalk conversion project in my future. Seems all it needs is an addition to the hub end to connect the three lines. This will not be for some time but thought I'd share the idea and would appreciate any comments. pencil_sharpener_1.mp4

  8. My daughter shared my love of boats and ships, and to make models for her was the driving force behind why I began building. She was murdered more than a year ago, and with her senseless death, I lost my reason and purpose and passion for modeling. Therefore, I’m letting my Sherline Mill and remainder of desirable books from my book collection go. These are my last few items, and I would like to see them go to members of this great community; therefore, I’ve set prices to help make these last few items more accessible. If you’re serious and interested in the items I
  9. This is a mini review of Alexey Domanoff's Planetary Ropewalk. First, let me say I'm very pleased with the ropewalk and how well it works. I've made a few changes that suite my needs, more on them later. Mine took about a month to arrive from Belarus. Alexey said that normal shipping is seven to ten days, I think the X-mas holidays slowed it down. The machine comes in a flat pack and is to be assembled. I spent about an hour on the assembly of the machine, wanted to be sure not to mess it up. The machine consists of a base plate that is 15 1/2" long, 5" wide, and 5/16" thick, mad
  10. I'm really new to the hobby and just in the first stages or my model (Syren) and I have been getting the specialized tools needed for the hobby. I have noticed that several people on the site say that they have and use a ropewalk; but what's the point? The kit I have looks like it has nice "rope" (string) so why would I need a ropewalk?
  11. Hi, I'm confused by the talk of Z or S twist. I understand the differences, direction. What I don't understand is why? Especially after looking at some pictures of the Victory which I'm about to start. As there are clearly several ropes of each kind same size and same sorts of use. So when would which be used? Or was it a question of which way they ran the machine that day? Or would it normally be one for ropes under a certain diameter and the other for cables? Any help would be gladly received. Izzy
