My experience with Einhell was good ... until it shows quality issues ... Half a year ago, i replaced pencil tool third time ... and again ... Jaws ... it was soon impossible to mount drilling tools to stand still and not to fall out from jaws. Also top of tool oscillated in undesired direction. So, you can imagine how work with it looks like. And, considering my approaching birthday, I said - that is enough! 100€ finished my agony making little  parts

Put a couple of rope coils hanging from it, and it will look perfect, Nenad.

There will be a bunch of ropes, my friend, and, to be honest, that is main reason I decide to say "stop, this is it"

Litle research work

Position of different Fife Rails is briefly explained on Lou`s old photos

As you can see, arround main mast, there are two different, one with "regular" rounded pillars, and another with built-in triple hinge in square pillar

And with fore mast, there is second with built-in triple hinge in square pillar

Anybody know reason - why?

I really do not know the answer to your question. I can only guess that they couldn't make the triple-sheave in a round post.

Thank you Wiktor.L and wellcome to my log. You are 100% right, my friend. 

This approach you are talking of, I used while making small parts on a fore and aft deck. I have to admit, that at one moment making Fife rails, I lose my patience, and thinking about bunch of ropes and sails which will go under and over, this details, particulary their microscopic look, is not to much significant. That was also reason why I gave up to make sheaves on pillars, as I did on a fore deck details earlier

All coments are more than wellcome

See you here and arround

Hi Nenad, 

I'm all caught up!  life got in the way for a couple of months😡

Very nice work on the pumps and rails!  always such attention to detail. 

 

I tried looking into the rails a couple of years ago without success.  Some drawings have two rails at both the mainmast and foremast.  I've also seen photos with a rail matching the aft main rail behind the foremast (fore all I know it could be the rail relocated from the main to the fore mast).  I will say now that I've rigged the foremast, I don't know how you could attach all of the lines running aft of the fore mast to just the spider band pins if you have it fully rigged.  In fact I found that I was missing 6 lines when I was planning the rigging -I came across some references to trip lines for the staysails Along with the downhauls you would be looking at 9 lines sitting on  two to three pins.    My thought is that the 2nd foremast pin rail was removed when the masts were cut down and the sky sail and all studding sails were removed.  It would also explain why there seems to be differences in rigging plans where many of the lines are routed to the bulwark pin rails.

 

As to the single sheave in the round aft pin rail - I agree with Wood Hacker.😄

I was asking the same question.  However, unlike the foremast, when I rigged the foremast aft pin rail I only had one large line that would benefit from the sheave.  Maybe that is the answer?  I could also be full of crap.🙄

 

best,

marc

Hi Nenad

 

I’m so sorry to hear about Adrian. You and your family have been through so much sadness lately.  

 

I hope and pray that life will bring you much love and friendship from now on; but I’m sure that Hothead and your daughter will continue to bring you the love and joy that you deserve. 

 

Stay strong. 

 

Patrick

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.
