The examples (e.g. barrels, pail, rope, etc.) look good but not sure how the tooling relates...Moab

What is it?   How is it used?

It looks like a jig for making rope coils.   Unless I'm wrong, You catch the end between "B" and "C".  Secure with "A" then wrap the coils around "C".  The separate parts shown look to be a variable for different size rope and coils.  Pretty ingenious to my eyes and probably wouldn't be all that hard to make.

There are some guys here into tool-making, but he beats us all. And, he must have somewhere a second life to spare, for all the time he spends on the tools ;)


He must enjoy it and get great satisfaction from doing this. I enjoy making jigs and tools and I do my best to make them neat. However these are amazing and way beyond my skill level - even if I had the tools. Mine are wood with all the metal parts purchased from the local hardware or wood working store.


I do like to look at the pictures and admire his work though.

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.
