I think this is achievable by anyone who really wants it.


The smallest I can manage even if a smidge big to scale.






 
2mm spacing









Solder this and file to shape

Thank you both  :-)  This morning I had a picture in my head of what I thought might work but thought I might be all day at it or even fail. I tried smaller drill bits but they just snap so 0.8mm really is my limit which dictated the overall size. The 2mm webbing won't stick with CA so I had to use epoxy which unfortunately spoils the colour too. On the final build I'll shorten the strap but for now I need the length to undo and refasten it.

Burning the midnight oil I tried another strap with a different CA Everbuild industrial and this DOES work on this material  :-))

OK so after the Amazon drill bits waste of money.....


I'm taking these for a ride. Seller has great prices for Heller and the suitability chart puts these Titanium as the most suitable for brass/non ferrous.
So at 7.98 for 10  delivered I will let you know

Taking a break now as todays stanchion was completed an hour ago

My feedback on these for brass is fantastic and I've just bought another 20

I'm getting close to completion of all brasswork.


I don't think I pictured my pinning before of the Stanchion brace junction? 1mm hole drilled through and brass rod fitted covered in flux.

Andy,
It's just that you showed the Port side when you said Starboard and the Starboard side when you said Port. Confusing.....maybe.

Thank you Kim. It's very nice being able to view them all without the cabin in the way, something not possible with the kit version.
This also aids vertical alignment.

Yes, I had not considered that......so quite helpful in that aspect, especially when pond or lakeside with the wheelhouse removed - where ever you are, there's always a 'rivet counter' about!

Thanks Paul. Not finished yet! but hopefully by tomorrow night. I think the only brass left to do is the grab rail facing the gate to the upper helm Amen


Then there's all the bolts to fit on the feet and the leg pull pins in stainless after painting

Re: ModelsbyDesign Shannon. The stand alone stanchion features
« Reply #772 on: March 03, 2020, 10:39:49 PM »

Every stanchion base is the same procedure but the stand alone stanchion is different there after.
3.18mm bore brass tube set for soldering. My centre height from deck is 35mm at the centre line of the foot



Trim off the other side and repeat soldering.


Then grind off both sides near to their final length.



drill from both sides 1mm



Follow both sides with one of these at 3.18mm also



Only as deep as the solder



2mm bit NO BIGGER from both sides also, smaller if you choose.



to be continued ......

So for the top I drill just one hole in the brass tube.


I shape the top of the leg so it fits fully into the round tube and slot the top to make drilling easier later.





Again I solder one side then cut the other side to length and solder too



My finished stanchion height are 76mm
Centre here is complete the outer two will be trimmed to height AFTER fitting the shackle points.
This clearly shows the extreme angles of the foot plates to maintain a vertical leg and why in my opinion the only accurate way to do this is in place as they are all different.
