The beginning of wisdom is a firm grasp of the obvious...

by Don
(NE Victoria, Australia)

Over the years, I've boiled it down to just a few lines.

They come from production engineering, but they apply widely...

Preventing troublesome designs:

* Avoid complexity wherever possible.

* Seek simple ways to prevent assembly errors.

* Minimise the number of different types of components.

* Know the limits of your production capabilities and design in margins for error.

Happy building, and smooth sailing!

Chinese metal protection

by Darrell
(UK)

Heat item to blood red temperature then using a thin wire hook dip the item into a tub of pre-melted pitch.

Shackles are best done with the pin fitted.

It must have been the first type of metal protection for Junks!
