the hull of my ship is near complete and the next step is standing rigging. And there arises a big problem: BLOCKs.
(I will need about 70 pieces of 3mm triangular deadeyes, 80 pcs. of 4mm and 9 other types of blocks.)
As I wrote previsously, that I've found a guy with laser cutting machine - but that way is impasse. His 30W laser can cut only plastics. And blocks are too small, are too heaten while cutting so the result is useless. Cutting of metal (brass, Cu, Al,...) is impossible. And paper (1mm carton) burns...
The attempt of hand made was unsuccesfull too. Carton tears to layers while drilled...
So, if anyone had to solve similar problem - how to make plenty of pieces showed below (the size is from 2,5mm to 5mm), please tell me. All suggestions are welcome.
