never let your plan set on it blade unless you are using it
I do this all the time. I feel like I'm more likely to nick the blade with another tool if its laying on its side. This is only if your are setting it down on wood and not a concrete floor. Your blade gets more wear from using it than it resting on the blade. Just don't be slamming it down.

I have got to the point of installing the side batons for framing. I have attempted 2 so far, I have cracked one and split one in the most forward bend.

Does this step require steaming? (I don't own a steamer). Have people had good success with the towel and boiling water? If so, how long do you leave the hot wet towel on before bending? Does it keep its shape after (would need to remove for scarfing and then refit for glueing).

I would steam them. It is easier and cheaper than a new piece of wood. It only takes about 20-30 minutes to steam a batten using a cheap wall paper steamer (Home Depot) and plastic sheeting (3-6 mil also HD). Make sleeves by rolling plastic sheet and staple edges. Also, try not to drill and screw fastening points at bends.Glue and set with clamps if possible.

Ben Petre,
We haven't heard from you for about a year. Since you are the closest Glen L builder in the country to me, Gaithersburg, I'm curious to know how my "neighbor" is progressing.

Regards,
Gene

I have been lurking and watching on the boards. Sadly, My build stalled as I built a SUP for my wife and a kayak for my daughter in the last year. I am happy to report though that my raptor staples showed up last week and I plan to go buy a lot of 1/8 okume this week!

HI All-
I am restarting my build after ~ 3 years of very limited activity (my son is now 3 years old :). I am getting close to the mahogany layer for the bottom and have been thinking a lot about how to affix that last layer. i have been using raptor staples so far and absolutely love them. i noticed that if i use the longest staple and not quite enough pressure in my compressor, the staple goes mostly but not all the way in. If i did this in the last layer and then sanded off the tops, do you think the legs would be visible? Or would they stain well and disappear? I have heard of people using the brown brads, but would hate to buy another gun/supplies if i can get this to work. i was planning on doing some test strips first before i committed, but figured the communal knowledge here may be able to guide me.

I didn't use raptor staples, but if i remember correctly, others have posted that they do disappear once stained.

Hey Ben..... Happy to see you back at it. I think you could use the Raptor staple gun for the planking. Try stapleing through 1/8" scrap strips, then into the planking. Tap the scrap off and sand the staple legs flush. This system works great with the brad gun, but I think it will also work with the stapler. Give it a try. I think all of the Raptor stuff is stainable. Maybe we can get together this summer for a run up the Chesapeake.....Neel
