Robjames Posted May 8, 2020 Report Share Posted May 8, 2020 Hello, happy to be here! I'm so happy I stumbled on this forum! So much amazing talent and information on here!! I'm on my 3rd ship and working from a book (Leon Labistours making ships in bottles) that was my grandads who has since sadly passed many years ago. He made one for all his children and I was always amazed by the one he made my mum from being a young child (and my aunties and uncles). I finally took the plunge and now I have seriously been bitten by the bug!! I love spending time carving the hull and the painting it etc, I love the time it takes to to do all the rigging and adding the sails! What I struggle with is drilling the holes in masts etc. I do it by hand with a pin vise. Does anyone have any jig ideas for drilling masts or just fast and accurate ways of doing it? Apologies if I have asked those questions in the wrong section! Many thanks in advance!
