Thanks for all the nice comments guys.

Zee, that dimple is a detent stop for a custom vise stop I.m developing. ;)

 :lolb:

I seem to have a multi station version of that stop!

That was the first thing I did when I got my mini-mill.
I put two in.
I just didn't know what they were for yet.  ;D

The CNC makes them easy to create, I would think with a manual mill you would have to think about it for a bit,  :lolb:

That was the problem. I didn't think at all.  ;D

It just came naturally.  :lolb:

Dave,
That's some great work on the brown stuff. It will be good when you can clear some time to finish it and fire it up.

Hi Dave, I have not been following this thread. My loss.

Your attention to detail is astounding - handmade pintles and gudgeons on the hinges and hasp; customized stencilling.

You are at the top of your game.

Best regards,

John

Hi Guys

I had some time today to make a video of the Pacific actually running. It's not the best quality, as I was using my digital camera, maybe there is a better way.
Anyway here it is.


Thanks for checking in.
