This is one of the many secret weapons that we are using during the restoration of JAMES STEVENS No10 πŸ‘. The hull is copper riveted so you can’t use an ordinary sander on the inboard areas of the hull, due to the rivet heads 😩. It is a grit impregnated nylon bristle cup brush - great for keying and removing old paint. Saves us heaps of time and πŸ’ͺ ... See MoreSee Less

Another session on the JAMES STEVENS No10 again today. Mostly sanding and preparing the interior, can’t wait to get a lick of new paint on the old girl. Leo Walker kindly came up today to lend a hand, which was very much appreciated - he even came armed with an array of professional sanding machines πŸ’ͺπŸ‘ ... See MoreSee Less

Here’s some time lapse of yesterday’s activity πŸ˜‚

Coming on well. Is much of the woodwork original Robin? Considering the age of her, and all the previous work done on her, there does not seem to be much rot showing?

The work you have put in is phenomenal, it’s going to be so worth it

Good progress

Any more pictures any more pictures.

Thanks Leo, the boat is very well ventilated, the old paint is not lead based. I have a better mask to use when we start sanding πŸ‘ your offer of help and your dustless sander would be much appreciated. I will be there tomorrow 10 till 3pm and Sunday too

Coming along nicely, just very time consuming due to the copper rivets 😐

Great work but you need to invest in a better mask especially when burning off old led paint and also when sanding wood that has had old paint on. If you need a hand sanding I have a dustless sanding system we can use. Pm me free on weekends
