Uh, Ok, I know now....
If those are real pics of the model, you are John King reincarnated. So, Johnny, what do you think of the 21st century?

gads................he's normal!
oh, which reminds me of one of my favorite frustrations.....finding a swing arm lamp that can handle the new compact fluorescent lights...expecially the larger capacity ones......''they'' still sell them designed only for the light weight incandescent lites.....tried shortening the springs, which helped somewhat.....guess people just don't buy them anymore?

Yancovitch, yes he is Normal--I think his first name is Abby but I might be mistaken.

As for the swing arm light fixtures. It is interesting that I am not the only one to have to scrap a couple of these because the bubs don't fit in them, but the new LED bubs do. They are costly but I think a whole lot better than the curly cue Chicom bubs.

I installed a couple of 4' LED tube lights in my shop florescent light fixture, bypassed the ballast and walla--what an improvement. Not cheap at $40 per tube but lighting is a whole lot better in my lair out in the old barn.

Just a normal guy.

With the assemblies of the entire masts coming together(virtually) and the lower masts sort of coming together. I redesigned my below deck sheaves that will guide the brace control lines from the servo drum to above deck. Will be adding some eyebolts around the base of each mast as well and the control lines will blend in with those hopefully.

Lower mast assemblies.








Foremast below deck brace guide

BTW. What kind of 3D. printer do you use, Filament or powder bed? also is this something you have access to at work or is it a home model such as the Makerbot or Ultimaker?
