|Unpicking is not fun.|
|Done! At least almost. Note quality controller |
in the background.
|First router jig. Not so great. Note jagged groove |
in the deadeye.
But more important: The jig I made for routing the groove in the Mvule was not so clever. The router did not like it, and grabbed the wood....Don't argue with a router!
So I tested a piece of engineering plastig I was given as a sample, then went and bought more. It is called Polystone G, and seems rather impervious to sun. At least I hope so!
Polystone seems to be a HDPE and is said to be good for making tanks! In front of my favourite plastics place they have a slab of it bridging a small channel. It has been there for years, and shows no weathering despite being in the direct sun.

|Jig mark 2 for routing deadeyes.|
