Lovely  :-)  Please consider the market for these. I'd be happy to pay good money rather than modelbau having a laugh price  >:-o
Buy one get one free is comfortable if you can make that work  :-))  Certainly manage 600


P.S. that is certainly a terrific advert for your lathe never mind your skill setting it up! lots of negatives from anti Chinese equipment online but the finish speaks volumes
Sorry I don't take orders, once you start it stops being a hobby and the enjoyment in gone.

Awesome work Brian.

I'm going to have to practise more with my lathe :embarrassed: 

It will be a long time though before I could produce something that impressive :-))

Nice piece of turning, can I ask how are you going to mount them Brian? I'm thinking aluminium is not the easiest of materials to bond either chemically or thermal (some form of solder/welding) or are you going to rely on mechanical fastenings, some form or rivet or screw/bolt?

Cheers lads, Brian i will be fixing a brass bar onto the top of the nozzles (drilling and tapping using m5 bolts) here is a photo showing the flat on the nozzle. I will post a photo when I have done this  :-))

Not much done over the last couple of days, here is a photo showing the amount of clearance the prop has in the nozzle, not a lot it's not fixed yet but it looking good.

Thanks for your kind remarks lads I seem to have been on quite a while with them, I haven't added up how much they have cost
(I don't think I will lol) I might try and get a bit done on the hull or maybe get a start  on a bow thruster.  :-))

Hi all hope every one has had a good Christmas, nothing done to the build over the last week but I thought I would put the hull into the bath to see how much ballast she would need to get her down to the water line.
I think I might have to start going to the gym and do a bit weight lifting, 5 batteries and the two nozzles total weight 18kg and still room for a bit more.

Interesting weight Brian I expected more.


Q?
front round fender. Have you something in mind for this.


I am thinking about 35mm diameter and have found options for both solid cord or hydraulic hose. I cannot find sponge at this diameter without going to China

I found the good stuff in 35mm but postage from Holland is a ridiculous price for 1 metre that weighs nothing and more than doubles the price  >:-o https://www.greendalerubber.nl/en/EPDM-sponge-rubber-cord-35mm-per-meter


Happy New Year Brian  :-)

The total weight will be more Andy, i was just seeing how much the drive units would take her down and the best location for ballast.
I will be using the same rubber tube as I i used on the Maltby.

Happy New Year to you Andy :-))

Now thats nice gear  :-))   I've never seen a parting tool mounted like that before directly into the holder. I've only seen them in a standard mount which is then mounted into quick change. Makes sense though and I guess all tools could be mounted the same way which would save time.  Keep the updates coming.

Thats a nice quick change toolpost Brian. I'm still waiting for my lathe coming from Germany and I considered similar myself, but really I won't use it enough to warrant the outlay, I'll make do with the 4 tool turret that comes with it.
