Quote from: pheasant_plucker on July 31, 2019, 19:48:16 pmI usually just use liteply with liteply doublers where the screws go in.I have never had a servo pull the screws out in the last 40 years even after a subterranean landing Gerry
Quote from: paulinfrance on August 01, 2019, 07:50:05 amI still use 'bio' fruit boxes, from gliders to 20cc petrol's for servo fixing,,
Quote from: rbp28668 on September 03, 2019, 20:46:35 pmMust be bloody big servos if you need a box that size....
Quote from: British Victory on November 04, 2019, 12:14:22 pmI thought marine ply used water resistant adhesives, even lignum vitae absorbs water, at least it did in the stern tubes of the tankers I sailed on. It's reckoned to be almost impermeable iirc it doesn't even float.FWIW BS 1088 is the Compliancy standard applied by LRS for "marine ply".

Quote from: itsme on November 04, 2019, 15:51:53 pmI believe there are piers in the Thames hundreds of years old. Think the wood was cedar.
Quote from: mart49 on November 04, 2019, 17:14:18 pmMy recollection about BS1088 marine ply from building dinghies many years ago was that the wood and glue had to withstand boiling in water for 72 hours without significant deterioration. A bit of overkill in a model plane I guess; unless of course you subject your models to some pretty extreme treatment!
Quote from: PDR on November 04, 2019, 16:58:09 pmThe piers next to the thames are also hundreds of years old - they are made from in-bred aristocracy.PDR

Quote from: PDR on November 05, 2019, 17:28:32 pmWell yes, but I don't think anyone watched it - it was on BBC2, which is hardly mainstream is it...PDR
Quote from: PDR on November 05, 2019, 11:48:18 amPicky, picky...OK then - the Piers near the Thames is 54 years old and has an imprint of Jeremy Clarkson's fist in the middle of its face.PDR
