The old adage a picture worth a thousand words.

I know its a cheap line, but does that still apply to photobucket images ..lol

Interestingly i came accross this on paddle ducks -

Kim if you'd like the pic's removed just ask, I thought they'd be of interest to forum members.

Just a heads up the 5mm paddle shaft never arrived & I bought 2 x 300mm lengths from Hong Kong.

Hope all is well and i see everything has died down form an urgency to a next project status.

So i have to ask was there an agenda to this post, tell you why, - I don't stock 6mm silver steel or stainless steel ... never have,  so no idea why 6mm that i don't stock managed to get all the way to Australia in your order.

The paddle wheel instructions ... in five years no complaints!  only asks for advice ... asks came direct to me, all satisfactorily answered, to my understanding.
 Not, as you did,  straight out on a public forum.. so i ask once more ...

Was there an agenda?
Regards,
Kim

No agenda Kim, All I wanted was to get everything for this model together prior to starting I was not trying to scam you in anyway.
Having never before made feathering wheels I found the pictures didn't tell me how they went together well enough.
And having already spent $1100Au Just wanted everything on hand prior to starting, Josie olsen is almost finished delayed by health issues at the moment.

The total was shared 5 ways between all your bits, all of Marks hull & fittings, Action electronic paddle steering electronics, Batteries and the freight fees. As you'd know it adds up.

Made a start removed the wheel rims from the sprue and used a nail file to remove what the wire nippers missed and with a wire wheel in the dremel cleaned up the oxides on the RHS rim.



Somehow the float sheets have been stained any ideas on how to to remove the stains??????????
I tried a light sanding with 600 grit paper to no avail.



Any suggestions gladly accepted.

Damien.....brass surfaces naturally show tarnish/discolouration due to oxidation from moisture in the atmosphere/fingerprints

Traditional liquid Brasso will remove this tarnish..........however in Australia we have alternate metal polishes which are so mildly abrasive.....

You should never use an abrasive paper in such cases a this will scratch the surface

Again, you will find needle files more suitable for precise filing of snipped/uncut laser joints in brass sections......using nail files  is like taking a chain saw to a piece of Rump Steak

Keep us posted with this work
