Check which side of the flange allows easier rotation of the main axle. Fix the main axle with gear on the desired side of the flange. To do so fully tighten the jam nut and then release it slightly to allow free rotation of the main axle Repeat for the second flange.

Assemble handles. Set the flanges assembled on the baseboard at a distance required. Fit the transmission axle. Fit transmission gears on the transmission axle flush to the flanges. Your serving machine is now ready. Check if it operates freely.

Strain the rope between flanges: thread the rope’s ends through main axles and fix them on handles. If the rope is long lay it coiled on handles. If the rope length to be served exceeds the distance between flanges the rope may be moved.

By coiling served length on the opposite handle. Use the needle to thread serving line through the rope. You can now begin serving. To speed up the process you can rotate transmission axle manually rather than using handles. To strop blocks insert hooked rods into main axles set them at a distance required and fasten with retention screws.

Fix the thread on one of the hooks. Wind the thread on the hooks. The number of winds depends on the required thickness of the becket. Now serve this. At the end secure the thread on the becket. As a result you get a served becket with loops an the ends.

Using the needle thread the fibre through both loops and secure them. This allows quick production of series of EQUAL served beckets. Fit the block on one of the hooks. Put the becket on the block. Use the second hook to tighten the becket. Fasten rods in the axles.

Two Years of Building a 16th Century Spanish Galleon

gt;gt;gt; it’s a big day at spanish landing park the two year anniversary of this empty parking lot’s transformation into a 16th century shipyard. gt;gt;gt; It’s something you don’t see every day a big old ship sitting out here in the parking lot. gt;gt;gt; Peter Wilson began instruction on the San Salvador two years ago today. gt;gt;gt; We have made a lot of progress, a lot of progress. gt;gt;gt; Employees have been joined by hundreds of volunteers, in fact, volunteers now makeup.

Half the work force. gt;gt;gt; there are chain links over there that we have been working on, we’re going to do about 5 more of them today. gt;gt;gt; Don faulknev a black Smith who volunteers ever Thursday using a procedure used in the early 1500s. They’re building a historical replica of the first ship to land on San Diego’s shores in 1542 explorer Cabrillo floated the boat into San Diego bay he claimed this land for Spain. No plans of the San Salvador exist so naval.

Architect, douglas sharp says the design process has taken ten years. gt;gt;gt; We look at ancient charts of what the ship would look like in the corners of the charts, we looked at models from cathedrals in Spain. gt;gt;gt; At this time scaffold be has been added around the ship and the completion of the hull’s frame. What is left? gt;gt; We have to flag the outside of the boat, put the planking down, plank the sides, fill.

Up the sides, there is finishing work which takes a lot of time. gt;gt;gt; The finished San Salvador will be more than 100 feet long have a 100 feet metal mast and it’s about 60 to 70% complete with about 20 to 30 volunteers working on it daily. gt;gt;gt; We are working with a smaller crew than we envisioned and taking longer to build the ship but more people than we thought are getting a chance to see it so we’re happy with the pace of the construction. gt;gt;gt; The replica was supposed to be finished.

By the end of the year now they’re hoping the end of 2014. The project is expected to cost $6.2 million, once complete the San Salvador will take paying customers warned trips on San Diego bay and sailing up the California coast. For now you can visit the shipyard between 11 and 4 every day to see the construction. gt;gt;gt; You come down, I’ll get you next to the ship, you put your hands on it, the ship will talk to you, it’s a rare opportunity to experience shipbuilding, but experience the shift, the.
