60378 5-PIECE RIGGING TOOL SET

Miniature Fingers for Ship Modelers. This set of rigging tools makes ship modeling's most difficult task a lot easier. You'll be able to retrieve, hook, position, tie, gather, maneuver, hold, fish, pull and reach rigging lines on any part of your model. Slim, 7 inch long handles keep your fingers away from shrouds, stays and other lines already installed so you won't have to retighten lines and make repairs. Especially useful for tying lines to belaying pins, cleats, bitts and eye bolts. Steel shanks are set in smoothly sanded and lacquered artist brush handles. Tools can also be used as soldering aids and for positioning miniature items in the dollhouse.

60379 PLANK BENDING TOOL

For Ship Models, Dollhouses, Dioramas. This well designed tool will bend wood strips without special fixtures, hot irons or soaking in water. One jaw is ground to a triangular edge, the other is flat. When you place a strip of wood between the jaws and squeeze the handles, the triangular jaw crimps a V shape into the back side. Since the other jaw is flat, the opposite side of the strip stays smooth. And since there's a slight gap between the jaws, you get the right amount of compression automatically. The curve you get depends on how far apart you put the crimps. It's the quickest and easiest way we know of to bend ship model planking. Can also be used for dollhouses, dioramas and anytime you need a curved strip of wood, soft plastic or cardboard. Handles stock from 1/32 inch to 3/32 inch thick x 3/4 inch wide x any length.

60397 SHIP MODELER'S RIGGING SCISSORS

60663 PLANK FORMING JIG

Bending ship model planking strips before assembly eliminates complicated clamping fixtures, saves time and money due to broken planks and assures neat, tight fitting joints. How it works: one row of adjustable nylon formers are arranged to the shape of the bend you need. Planks are then soaked in hot water for several minutes to make them pliable. Then they're placed against the first row of formers. The second row of formers is then slid up against the planks to hold them tightly in place. Remove the planks when they're dry. They'll be permanently formed to your predetermined curve. Form up to 5 planks at a time by stacking one atop the other as shown. Made of water resistant acrylic with 10 nylon formers and cap nuts, zinc plated screws and no-slip silicone rubber feet. Approx. 5 inches x 5 inches with 1 inch high nylon formers.
