How to thread rigging blocks
« on: August 22, 2011, 09:06:00 am »

Hi all,

I have to admit a total ignorance as to how rigging blocks are threaded. I am at the stage of rigging my steam drifter Formidable and would really appreciate some help.  Dead eyes I am Ok with strangely.

Thanks for some help.

Hi boatmadman,
Enjoyed your thread.  I am going to scratch build the Formidable soon.  Did you create a build log anywhere on the net that I could access?  Do you have any pics that you could share with me?
Anyone else please.
