Our rigging team is preparing to re-create the rigging of Nordlys. This includes making a lot of tools.
Here you’ll find rigger Sam’s tool making up-date:
Large and small oak seizing mallets with bronze from Ron and myself.
Small oak serving mallets from Amouri and myself.
Christian working the lathe.
Hardwood seizing stick for wire seizings.
Lathe tool bench that Ron made.
We also have made small seizing sticks and large flying service mallets.
Next up is making dead eyes with ash wood. Lofting out standing rigging, serving and leathering, then seizing and pressing eyes. Also beginning to work on the spars
