    I watched them when they first started posting, but couldn’t see past them being clueless amateurs. This might be endearing to some, but wasn’t my preferred form of entertainment, so I unsubscribed and stopped watching.

    Also worth looking at the Duracell Project. It’s a far more modern boat (although 30 odd years old), so the construction techniques are very different. I’m in the middle of rebuilding a John Claridge Europe dinghy at the moment, so subscribed to look at how modern boatbuilders use vaccuum bagging to get light, strong parts, and how new stuff could be fitted into older hulls: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjS5sfBZUSw&list=PLy5jNQ2dT0Gr9bmDZ9uQGa4ywEE7bLWgw

    That Tormek sharpener has found me looking longingly at the pro kitchen knife machine. I have a 0 birthday this year and have requested one. I was told that’s for pro kitchens, early retirement beckons so that one was shot down quickly. 🙂

    The Tormek one is really expensive, they start at about £400. Though the this basic one, the T4 is pretty much identical to others on the market costing far less.

    A Record Power version(8″ wheel) will cost you  £170, others like Triton-£250, Scheppach Tiger -£140.

    The RP one has a host of free bits, dressing stone etc and is probably the best deal overall.

    As always, I’m amazed at the craftsmanship, even when working with a bit of old plywood 😂

    think Leo is being a tad naive showing off those batteries that’s @ least £35,000 worth!

    So, what happened to Pete then?  It is an amazing project but you have to have incredible drive to keep going at that level of detail for all those years

    I imagine the level of detail and knowledge that Pete has shown on the project has enabled him to have an endless amount of work offers that will pay much more than Leo can offer him.

    Ah,now that would make a lot of sense. He does seem to just get stuff done and be super knowledgeable

    I wonder how much its cost him thus far. I mean thats a shit load of big timbers, plus all the bits, fancy engine and the like. What do we reckon ? 1/4 million or thereabouts

    Probably worth upwards of half a million if he finishes it Pellew appeared in one of the earlier episodes btw.

    Thread diversion: carlrogers on youtube (not the psychotherapist) is good. His dad and he built a roof and a staircase in oak (and a Vespa scooter, not in oak). Only a few videos, but very watchable /Thread diversion
