Another mistake in in the drawing plans. On the plan drawings (three times, different drawings) the rear cabin is drawed on the wrong position. This means that the boom can,t turn the total 360 degrees. I had to do some annoying demolition work. See pictures below.

Thanks for watching.

I’m really surprised at the number of mistakes you find in these plans. Dont they use PROOF-READERS ???

Looking forward to the finished piece

accidents don’t deter good woodworkers Jan and sometimes it’s even fun to be challenged by mishaps like this. You did a great fix and no one will ever know that the parts were damaged (except yourself and about 80,000 Lumberjock members.

Nice save … resale … whatever! The final results are what counts and fixing mistakes, others or your own, make a woodworker a woodworker!

Joe in GA,
Mistakes in woodworking plans, who would have known?
My wife is an avid reader on her Nook and you would be surprised how many grammatically incorrect and mispellings she finds.

Thanks all for response

Joe I,m also surprised at the number of mistakes. Normally the plans from T and J are 100%.

Steve the recovery went well, but believe me before trying I wasn,t surely if it would go.

Klaus I have checked the plans many times, but this mistake was hard to discover before mounting.

Yes Mike it was a challenge but I didn,t have fun. So many mistakes isn,t normal in T and J plans.

Oldnovice your wife also will find a lot of misspelings in my LJ contributions, but hopefully she can forgive me. I can understand Friesian, Dutch, German and English, but speaking and writing all correct is to much for me. And it is more than 40 years ago I went to school.

Well Dutchy, It goes to show that a master craftsman is worth his weight in gold, and you sir have proved that in spades many times over, not just with this troublesome built….

THANK YOU for all the time & effort to do the photos & notes especially show the “HOW TO” on the fix, very much appreciated…

Although I have bought T&J plans I usually [well actually never] follow them exactly. I have found other querks in them too. Today I do most of my builds from research, pictures, measurements and from my head…..that’s the scarey part
Overall I think they are great for the fledgling model builder and good inspiration to the rest of us. Maybe I am just a rebel.
