I hung the Scot cab roof this evening...

 

I wanted the roof to be removable and devised a plan to hook it in there with some brass noggled strips. The back end of the cab sides did not line up with the roof, the kit relies on the roof to support these when glued on...

 

So a .5mm thick curvy frame was cut out and filed up n soldered in

The noggled strips were cut from .28mm thick brass 40mm long, the noggel was achieved by sandwiching the strip between two strips of .5mm brass, one on one side and the other on the other with a 1.5mm gap between the bending edges, taped together and scrunched in the bench vice

The roof was marked up with the strips in trial position, then the roof was scored with a knife, ditto to the brass strips after a good clean with the fibre brush and the lot was epoxied with a little bit of cling film around the cab wall top so that only the brass strips stick to the roof

I'll leave that for the night and see how it worked in the morning

flipping heck by hand!! Nice one, Must look into getting one of those Saws then. Tks 

It can be worth getting a saw with an adjustable frame, then broken blades can still be used.

There are fretsaws about, intended largely for wood, mostly taking pin-ended blades.
