Found the end pin. Right where you said it was. But, I'm gonna keep the thread going with some other questions.
First, I bought a sheet of birch plywood and had Lowe's cut it up into 8 pieces.
However, the guy doing the cutting didn't get everything square or the same size. None of the pieces match.
I glued up 4 of them, thinking I'd make an external mold. A friend is letting me use his band saw, and I have the equipment to sand it. What's bothering me is I don't have a 1/2 shape to copy.
(1) Should I take the paper plan cut it out, and trace it around the mold? I'd be cutting the mold on the centerline at both ends.
(2) Could I use bracing pattern, punch holes along it for the shape?
(3) Take one of the pieces of plywood that hasn't been used, cut the shape of 1/2 the body on it, then rough cut the other 7 pieces and then use a flush cutting bit to match them all up. This last idea is going to be much more time-consuming.
One other question - I'm going to go thru Bill's books again on this, but when gluing the neck block and the tail block to the sides, don't they stand a little proud at the top and back? Any tips for keeping them square to each other? I think if I really do well at both ends with the mold that it will pretty much set them to square. Make sense?
Bill, early next year I intend to start a new web site. Probably use it for some pictures, etc., of kit building. Think of something that I could do to help support your efforts here and take some of the load off. It would probably need to be something like posting pictures of other guys work, or things along that vein. Keep in mind that it should not be something critical.....I might end up dropping the page after a while, and wouldn't want to impact your work. I'd be willing and able to stock some of John's work, or Ken's or anyone of the others. Maybe set pages with a ton of links to their videos, instructions, tips, that kind of thing. I'd let them put their Ads
Here's a link to a site that I started some years ago. I haven't been active on it in 3-4 years (my son graduated), so the content is not mine, but the page setup is what I created.
That's the last I've worked on web pages, but I can dust off the Dreamweaver and PhotoShop and get back into the swing of things on it. Let me know if I can help.
