Licorne by mtaylor - (POF) - 3/16 - French Frigate (Hahn) - Version 2.0 - TERMINATED

If the small piece kicks back, a strip 1/32" x 1/8" can't do a lot of harm.

Dan true, however I do prefer to have the lager piece next to the fence it is much easier to push and control, I think that setting up to avoid the pinching at the rear of the blade is better, but that is just my experience.

 

 

I'm thinking that a small mod to the tall fence to give some clearance at the rear of the blade (it's an add-on) might do the trick.

Mark I think that this is a good thing to do, as you say this is an add on perhaps a small shim at the end towards the operator would cause a slight rake or anlge from the front to the rear of the blade.

 

I would also be tempted to set up a solid indexing block forward of the start of the blade, like the one in that thread. I am not a huge fan of feather boards. that said I do use them occasionally.

I'm a big fan of pushsticks and feather boards, even though I don't currently have the featherboards. I'm debating whether to make them or buy from MicroMark.

I've been fiddling with the saw while waiting for glue to dry.  I put a shim into the forward end of the fence (the tall add-on) and it cants just enough so the back of the blade isn't hitting the plank coming off.   I'm thinking about Jeff from HobbyMill's method for a guide fence on the feed side.  He uses a block of wood and his thumb...  hmm....I'm still considering similar to an Indexing Block as a viable alternative.   So many choices, just need to figure out which is best for me.

Just a brief update...no pics.    The longboat is on hold.  There's a couple of areas I'm not happy with and need to re-think.  Yeah... I know... "don't overthink this".  :)

 

My cherry wood for the framing has been shipped by Jeff at Hobbymill and is due to arrive here on Tuesday.  Happy dance time.... post-76-0-75779200-1396553999.gif

 

The Le Venus book in also in transit, so.... I need to reconfigure the shipyard from small boats to big hulls.  I have some odds and ends to finish up around the house, etc.  Plus I'll get some parts cut out for use during framing while sorting out some side issues with this build.

It was funny, today.  No more than 30 minutes after posting my last, the Le Venus book was delivered.  Very impressive monograph and service from ANCRE.

The problem inthis hobby is that good books are not cheap.  When I went to the conferences.  Seawatch knew I would be dropping by and there went my budget.

So true, David.  But there's a joy in the books beyond the info.  In this case, the rigging plan alone is worth the price not counting some of the detail stuff.   I'm studying these plans and monograph and realize that there's a lot  more to this ship than what Hahn shows.  I'm thinking that I'll have make a serious parts order or three for rigging material... hooks, deadeyes, blocks, ring bolts and eyebolts.

Christmas in April!!!  :)   Wood has arrived from Jeff at Hobbymill.  Wonderful wood and it's perfectly dimensioned.  I'm plotting out the frame blanks and hope to start making sawdust later this evening.

 

Time to start getting this build back on the road.... err... building slip.  The wood isn't warped, the camera is having issues. I think it was the setting I choose.

The whole lot, John????   Sheesh... you don't want much.  :D  :D :D  :D  

 

Sam,  amen...

This seriously the best wood I've ever received.  Perfectly dimensioned from end to end and smooth enough I can leave the sander in the closet.  And yes, it's happy dance time.post-76-0-44284300-1397009890.gif

 

Frolick,  it is indeed.  It's a wealth of information but I have to sift through it since it's actually later than Licorne, even though the rigging is same (according to Hahn).  There's also some good details that didn't change much that I'll incorporate.

Nothing quite like a batch of fresh timber from Hobbymill. Makes me start drooling just looking at the pics! Happy dance indeed! :)

There's nothing like a perfect piece of wood - that's why I lean toward good antique furniture instead of modern plastic and sawdust compressed stuff.  :P

Okay we've seen the 'pre-sawdust' photos and now looking forward to the 'post sawdust' installment!

You Lucky Devil Mark,

 

I felt the same when my Swiss Pear turned up from Jeff, happy wood dance and had to keep going downstairs to the workshop to look at it, I hope he outlives me as I have many more purchases to make from him! Lol.

 

So where is the sawdust we are all waiting for??

Thanks for the support and the likes...

 

Minor milestone... took the big pieces of wood and made about 850 small pieces of wood.  Oh... and sawdust.  :)

 

I've closed the sawpits for now and the pieces have been sent to the yard for gluing up into frame blanks and then cutting into frames.

 

Here's pics... and for those who wanted it.. a picture of (naturally) the sawdust from cutting the pieces.

Hopefully, I didn't mis-count but I still have some "big" pieces left just in case.

Now where did I stash that really large bottle of glue??

Instant wood filler!

 

Thats a lot of little wood pieces. When I worked in my first furniture shop I used to tell people who asked what I did for a living, "I cut big pieces of wood into smaller pieces and then glue them back into big pieces of wood" Looks like your doing the same thing here just on a smaller scale.

 

Looks like you had a very productive day!

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.
