Re: Aussie Gentry

I made the mistake of asking where the second exhaust port was until John politely pointed out he has a straight six not an eight !! So used to seeing V8's in these boats with two exhausts. John has one outlet on the port side.

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Hi Matt Even on a mitre like that the joint is essentially end grain to end grain. Without a tongue of some sort it will always be weak, regardless of glue used. Gussets a good idea here. My go to joint for a quick option here would be a domino. If you don't have such a tool then a half lap or bridl...

Re: Waterproof wood glue

We use a lot of structural Polyurethane ( PU ) in our workshop. Good on difficult timbers like Brush Box and Spotted Gum and they build beams and bridges out of it so has good external properties. It's a D4. here's a link. I hope it inserted correctly. [urlhttps://www.jowat.com/en-AU/adhesives/react...

Re: Resawing veneers

A note on recoveries. We usually get 3 x 3mm finished from a 2tmm board and 7 x 3mm from a 50mm board. I have got 8 on some really clewn boards taking it slow but the risk of losing a pice is higher when you cut it realy fine. Anyone only getting two from a 25m board should have a reassessment of th...

Re: Resawing veneers

Hi Jimmy. I agree a well set up rip saw can do a fantastic job. Have ripped many boards this way and the cleaner finish can help a lot overall with waste. Also you usually get a lot less blade wander so it can be realy effective. Just less so with deep boards and also the danger factor, especially w...

Resawing veneers

IMG_20180205_152242_187.jpg Hi all. Reading through the various posts on this board ( i have spent a lot of time researching the past month ) I see a number of ways builders have gone about making planking veneers. I thought it might be worth looking at this as a whole because these veneers are wha...

Re: Squirt build, Snowy Mountains, Australia

Agreed Matt. You could build a whole boat, no jigs, templates etc. No plans if you are really good, just a sketch. I run a workshop where we need to produce consistent results regardless of the maker so with most of our products and processes we have systems, jigs etc. It helps heaps with efficiency...

Re: Squirt build, Snowy Mountains, Australia

100% Jim. You mentioned a couple more benefits on templates. Re your Barrelback, it looks awesome. Have just checked out your pages. Jenko and I had a play with some curves on the back of his Riviera to see how she'd look with a Barrelback. You may see a hybrid when I start my Riviera build. It was ...

Re: Squirt build, Snowy Mountains, Australia

Thanks for the quick replies. You have confirmed what I thought to be the case. re the stretching of the plans as they are copied, thanks for that reminder. Essentially i will make any minor adjustments to ensure battens etc match cut outs on frames and all should be good. Doesn't change the fact mi...
