Welcome to the forum, Are! Glad you found us and I'm sure someone will be along shortly to assist. I'm not familiar with that router or that bit - sorry.
Are; you might find DIMAR bits (Germany) way easier to find over there...Thanks for answers. I just spoken to a friend and I can borrow his router. It can take 1/2" shank. I´ll order from Lee Valley if they ship to Norway.
This is a great forum with lots of good knowledge. I have started to update my profile and will update it more
Yes, I think this is a great forum. Plenty of knowledgeable and active members. And yes, I´ll be using spruce. It´s light and strong only problem as I can see it is that i rottens from inside. I was thinking of using oregon pine, like rest of the spares on the boat are made of, but that is heavier and not so easy obtainable in Norway. Since this spare is to be hoisted to the top of the mast it´s important that is as light as possible. The topsail is for light winds so it will be only used in light breeze.Welcome Are, to the forum. You will like it here. I came by some years ago to ascertain the natives, and never left. I shall follow your sparmaking project with great interest. Will you be using Spruce ? How big a spar is it to be ? I don't think I need to renew any of my boat's spars ( Cornish Crabber ) but you never know.
a bevel will do him no good... the spar will never stay together...Are we still don't know much about you or what tools and skills you have but at least we know where you are now. I don't think you will find those bits in a small shaft size to fit your router. What you might be able to find is a 30* bevel bit though. If the edges of each board were beveled at that angle then that should equal 360* total and you would have a full circle. In order to get a taper you would need to taper the boards first and without knowing more about you I can't suggest how you should do that.
Hi Stick, I guess you are right, a bevel will not do it. I just ordered a bridsmout, that´ll do the trick.a bevel will do him no good... the spar will never stay together...
birdsmouth is made to order and has been in use a zillion years and flex has to be taken into consideration......
if he used thickened material a spline can be added to mix... just saying...
is your Kebony wood an option/consideration???
you came to the right place....Do you have any suggestion on a easy and strong slice?
