Ewe,
they were a special order for me. I was most impressed with the quality of these cast brass anchors, as they are far superior to anything else available.
There we are . . . money talks!!! Their willingness to take on a special casting project is commendable as many businesses will only remain within their own defined business plan and not spread themselves out. With enough money anything is possible in principle. PT-2

PT-2 your comment is incorrect.
They are anchors from CAF models used for their HMS Enterprise model. They are the same size required for my HMS Alfred.
That's ok but I believe that my principle conjecture is universally right for a number of things. Now I have learned more about such accessories that I did not know about before. Thanks, PT-2

Ok I got a nice item to go with my DSLR camera.

I got this off eBay for about $55 Us. Came in box from Amazon!

It’s a LED light for close up photography that mounts on end of lens and provides bright even white lighting.

It comes with set of 6 adapter mount rings of most popular lens sizes.

It looks very convenient for those close or cropped type of photos. Now all that I need it the money to by a real camera and lenses in place of my iPhone. PT-2

Kolderstok Plank Bender.

I’ve read the many comments on this plank bender. Several forum members have recommended that I should have one.

Doing a little research I found that as is, the bender uses 220/240v and heats to 30 watts. A note to Hans at Kolderstok confirmed that given my countries electrical circuits are 120v, the bender as configured would never reach it’s designed wattage. Hans with great efficiency worked out a compromise.

A 120v, 30w soldering iron from Walmart fitted out with the components from his bender and ”viola” we had a working tool.

The components.

The final product works very well. I’ve tested it on basswood, linden, mahogany, cherry and walnut. All those woods (after a quick soak) bent to the shape of the head. I’ve not tried the other tip to “iron” a plank onto a hull.
