New model net making

Post by Evert van der Plas » Mon Jun 03, 2019 7:58 pm

Hi Gents
after making 15 nets model Gye from Farlows

it is time for a new model a Jack Hilton design net.
I ordered the T piece be course i can,t make the T piece my self at the moment but it will be possible in the future i hope, after all i have the sizes now to make a piece like that :-)
I started with the arms that i made from oak strips and made them 110cm long, to bent a brass strip from 2 mm tick was not easy but managed it the best way i could do and made two buses for the screws that will be soldered on the bent strip.
i have to taper the arms to finish and after that i start making the hard wood spreaderblock with ebonite or tufnol side plates and a pole lock screw 3/8 bsf on the lathe
I have this type net on my list to make for a long time and happy that i finally can make one.
will post updates when i did some more work on it

That looks a terrific start Evert. As always I shall follow avidly!
I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete.
