Emma Frames or almost all of them

The help is appreciated. I've corrected the 'inaccurate' pieces and overlaid them on the plan as you will see. I didn't get to #'s 9 & 8. Hope to do those tomorrow. Let me know if I'm on the right track.. I use to build houses not ships. I'm not sure about the slots on the bottom of the frames yet. I have to lay them on the keel to check so be careful there.

Nice work Skipper. Great to see the plan coming together. This will be a nice boost to the model plan.

Emma

Making headway. I had to adjust the frames just about everywhere and fix the keel for the slots. So as promised here's the frames. Print them full size 1:1 on 36 x 48"
paper. The same with the keel.

This is for me is a great feat to have accomplished by you Skipper. I am not a good draftsman so the work you accomplish will be the icing on the cake. At some point I will have to make changes on the posts I did with the difference of the 1933 original hull lines to the Sterling Emma hull lines. You have done a great service for the many interested builders of this nice model. Maybe somewhere on your redraw you can note the printing instructions.
Thank you

What I'm eventually going to do Bob is a complete pdf set of drawings and instructions. I'm going to wait though until I finish cutting and assembling the skeleton. I'll make any necessary tweaks before I publish the book.

I hope you don;t mind posting 'too' much. If I'm being a pest let me know. As I said before I'm redrawing the entire Emma in Autocad. This will allow me to correct the frames and other problems I encountered on the 1st build and scale it to whatever size I want. I built a cnc router that can cut 45x x 40y so when the plans are done I can cut my pieces with accuracy. Any slight beveling will still have to be done by hand. The enclosed jpg is a rendering of the 3d model. I will use all of the hardware from the original kit when I start the build.

That looks great. I can't wait to see your finish. Have you given thought to starting a Build Log in the boat groups? Ideally I think if you did that as the Dock Talk Groups protocall it would work work out preseving this thread as intended for the Vintage Boat plans. If you decide please leave a link here for all and I will subscribe to your Build Log if you choose to do that. You could refer to pages also here ih this Forum.
Just suggesting.

I purchased the plans for the 1st machine from www.solsylva.com. The guy really had it together. It was an inexpensive (under $800.00) to build and was an excellent starting machine to teach you the basics. Over a period of 4 years it became a lil sloppy when the screws started to wear in and the backlash on the lead screws increased. For wood it was fine, it left a lil to be desired for aluminum. This video shows the 1st machine cutting a guitar body for my nephew.

.

I decided to build the 2nd machine because I wanted a larger cutting area 40" x 45" and tighter tolerances. I completely designed the 2nd machine. It took me about 3 months to build it working in my spare time. My rapids increased to 60ipm. I designed it to hold a 1/2" router (Porter Cable) variable speed to better cut metals and take deeper cuts in wood. I cut anywhere from 10 ipm to 60 ipm.

I gave the old machine to my son who is in the process of building a 3rd machine the same size but with a better rail/ drive system. We can post pics of that too if you want when we start assembling it.

For those of you that need to shake paint, watch this video of a paint shaker I built.
