Lawrence, If you check out the Lumberyard, Caustic the jig used by Dave is very good very little waste, some of the Chinese POF models use a somewhat similar jig, at my age 80 have a problem cutting out my own jigs I will not get any POF models that does not come with a jig, I had to stop my Genl. Washington build even after I cut all the frames because it did not have a jig. JUST MY 2 cents Don
Hello Don

I do thank you very much for your information. Yes, I did buy a building laser cut building jig from the Lumberyard and that in its self-saved me a lot of time and that is for sure. I do believe that I could have cut the building jig from my set of plans but being that this is my first POF build I did not want to take the chance, as of now I would not hesitate to cut my own. jig. The wast of wood is in the blanks for building the ship's ribs, besides this I do like the Hahn build method, ENJOY.

Regards Lawrence

Lawrence, check my building log on the HALIFAX and see HOWI HANDELED THE HAHN JIG mine was the kit from THE LUMBERYARD, but the jig and its use are the same. Don

Hi guys, somewhere along the way I had a Homer Simpson moment "Doh!" I saw posts referring to the Hahn method. Here in Australia we have a beer named Hahn Ice, so here I was thinking you fellas were talking about having a beer while building? I do all my building using the Heineken method because after a while it doesn't matter what you glue as long as it all sticks together (just like us buddies on the Forum)

Hi Knut,
Any spay adhesive will do. I bought the Loctite at Lowe's home improvement center. I did find 3M spay adhesive works just as good and is cheaper.
