Very good work - it is important not to work fast to make big progress - more important is to make good quality, and this you do. Thumbs-Up

My friend, I have one question:
The holes in the deck, I guess these are prepared recesses for later installed stanchions / supports under the beam - but at the same location is the door or passage.
I do not have the drawings of the Renommee in hand to take a look, therefore I have to ask you - how is this contradiction solved?

Hello gentlemen,

Small progression ...


















That's all for today !

See you later ...

Great work with high precision - And I have to ask, because I am a master of killing drills
What is the diameter of your drill? How often you are braking the drill, so how much you need
Where do you buy them? And which electric tool is it, that you get the access so easily?
Please I need here some advise, because I did not find until now a good and working solution......

Hi Uwe !

To answer the question, I use "micro-forests" from various sites. Here are some addresses and some photos :

Regarding the drills, I have three models : a Proxxon, a "Minicraft" and finally a small "German" bought a long time ago : "Hobby Drill"

In the example above, I use the "Hobby Drill" with 0.3mm diameter, no breakage !
I happen to break forests, but not so much, the secret is to drill well perpendicular, easy to say and less to do !

That's it, I hope it fits your expectations.


Good day Uwe !

Patrick
