Starting work on all the Martingale or Dolphin Striker Stays…
This is from Rigging Period Ship Models
I ended up having to redo this one about three times but I finally got it!
This is the Spacer for the Crowsfeet. ..
Took me 3 tries to get this right.
I bought these Parallel Jaw Pliers a while ago and really haven’t had to use it up until now.
These things work great for holding a Block while you still into it.
These Pliers hold like nothing else. Also they don’t let go easily… So you end up losing your Part like with ordinary Needle Nose Pliers.
I finally finished the Jib Stays.
First, I made the Traveler using some Wire and I soldered the ends together to make a Ring.
