firstname.lastname@example.org Posted September 14, 2014 Share #1 Posted September 14, 2014 (edited) I have my first kit, Midwest Products Skiff. I inventoried the parts, and all are present. One of the first steps was to remove two pieces from the wood sheet and glue them together to create the skiff's knee. After sanding I discovered that I had removed too much material and my part was now too small. I decided to make a replacement. I scanned the portion of the plans that showed the part and printed it. I cut out the relevant portion out of the printed copy as a template. I glued it to a piece scrap with rubber cement. I then cut out replacement parts and glued the halves together. I now have a proper knee. Illustration shows (left to right) relevant part from plans, undersize part, scrap wood with template. I am now wondering if the rubber cement I used to attach the paper template will leave a residue on the wood that will be a problem when I get to the finishing phase. Do you think it will keep paint from adhering? Edited April 11, 2015 by Richard L Canute, GuntherMT, piperjoe and 1 other 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
