I am so excited. My custom made workbench has finally arrived.

It's 2 metres long by 1.5 metres wide and features two side vices, dog holes in the top and a drawer cabinet.
Time to get back to model building.

In Rochefort D.Berti from ancre and also Gerard Delacroix were present, showing and selling their publications.

Both were very pleased of our book and planset reviews here on SOS, so I got several of their new and older publications in order to make new reviews for our members

These are the new copies I brought from the visit in Rochefort , so I will make in the future the different reviews - stay tuned


From Gerard Delacroix - in short time Gerard will publish a new monographie of a frigate

they are a must have Besides setting up tools for cutting, I also do a good bit of welding. I take it with me to work for setting up tilt angles on Masts. I usually have some form of welding to do every week so I use it to set up metal for welding. I bough a less expensive one and fried it while stick welding I guess it took some arc. I haven't tried using this one with stick welding, but it works real well with TIG.

Yea I have a tig welder i use one those magnetic protractors with the needle but they arent all that accurate and sometimes I need degrees minutes and seconds for angle when I do millwright work occasionally since I am a journeyman millwright though I dont do that work anymore unless a friend calls me to help him with a project so this way it will easily show in deg min and secs at least according to manufacturer

G'day Joe and Joseph
I've got the same as yours Joe and it's brilliant.
I'm using it to cut the mitre joints in mr shirting boards atm.

I've just bough a digital angle meter and eith the two, it makes my work easier, faster and more accurate.
I first put the inclinometer on the drop saw and zero it, the I put it in my saw blade and go to half of the angle meter reading which works out to be 67.75°. Cut both pieces and the join is perfect.
