I did each bar individually on AG.. and was hoping there is something out there i could use as a substitute...
What would you use?...

I'm looking for something like this, on Crowley Scout...
I used 0.020 wire...
One...
two..

I think he'd be better off just making one master and molding copies...

This is woodybob's excuse to get a cnc attachment for his milling machine. then he can make a couple dozen identical machined stainless steel grates.

Not very much at the moment, the MHT came to a standstill as the TBW was away for most of December on vacation in Europe...

I'm getting re-acquainted with the project though and there will be some reports soon...

Need some opinions

Ok...

So after much gnashing of teeth and many failed attempt's (in wood, in ply, in brass) I've come up with this method of making the grating's..

Brass strip, drilled and brass rod soldered in to the strip. The top end of the rods are let in to the bulwark's.
Once the brass strip and the top end's of the rod's are epoxied in to the hull, I'm planning on fairing in the bottom of the bulwarks to match the grating...

Any comments?..

I know, you need electronics, cabin, E.T.C. And a little more time,

Your doing a great job there. As if you didn't have enough to do, are you putting on a working monitor, or did I miss that in a earlier post?
