Videos from other people about Tally Ho

Most of the blog pages on this site are Leo's, but there are occasional other videos that I think are worth including.  Usually about other work on/for parts of Tally Ho.  I'm not presently sure how best to curate this, soo it may change with time.

The entries are a mixed as different people have posted various stages of different jobs at different times. I may try to rearrange them better if they seem to get too crazy.

Tally Ho Capstan Restoration 1: Disassembly -It Fought me the Whole Way!
This is the breakdown (literally) on the Tally Ho capstan Keith Rucker is working on. As I explain, this is un-edited and lengthy as I didn't have time to trim and edit before now but you get a lot of what was posted by Keith Rucker from a different angle and it gives one the perspective of actually being there. Along with this I take you to Mike Wiggins(Backyard Machineshop) to help get things ready to complete his roof for his shop.
Traditionally, a coin is placed under the main mast of a vessel when the mast is first stepped (put into place). This is a celebratory even and is done to bring good luck.
Leo at Sampson Boat Company asked if I could help him by doing a repair to a broken casting off of a pipe threading machine that he purchased. We started by removing bronze bushings that slide on some rails and then brazing the broken casting back together. I will show how I turn bronze bushings on an expandable mandrel on the metal lathe and then press them in place on my arbor press.
Today we build a traditional English Joiners mallet for Talley ho. this mallet head was made from the same lumber the ship is being rebuilt from.
Dave starts a new project: make a pattern for a capstan for Sampson Boat Co's 1910 English sailboat named "Tally Ho". This is Part 1: Pattern Layout and Glue Up. Capstan- a machine with a drum that rotates round a vertical spindle and is turned by a motor or lever, used for hauling in heavy ropes, etc.

Dave sits down and answers the questions that viewers have asked in the comment section from the Tally Ho Capstan Project videos.
This is part one of making a violin for the boat Tally Ho. More specifically for Leo, the gentleman leading the restoration and rebuild of the boat.
As I write I'm not sure David Webster yet has a video about TH's capstan. Some good related videos, though.
This my friends is the flask construction for the Tall Ho capstan where I make a custom flask just for this project. The flask we currently have on hand would require this mold to be a half ton and to counter that, I choose an octagonal flask to reduce the weight 500 to 600 pounds. The following tools used in this video include the Everlast 82i plasma cutter and the Creality Falcon 2 40 watt.
This my friends is the first attempt to make the mold for the Tally Ho capstan. I get half way into this only to realize this is more than Josie, Dollar and I can handle. As with any mold we make for the first time, things don't always go as planned and like this capstan, the plan is made and changed every minute as we experiment to see what works best. I want to thank Eddie and Sam for dropping what they were doing to help finish this first attempt, especially with very late notice.
Tally Ho Capstan Project: Machining the Bottom of the Capstan Drum.
This begins with the sodium silicate cores that will be added to the first successful mold for the Tally Ho capstan. I want to thank my friends who, without their help, would have made for a much more challenging time getting this mold made.
Tally Ho Capstan Project: Machining the Capstan Drum to Accept a New Gypsy.
Making a chain gypsy from raw materials.
Boring a hole in the base to allow the drive mechanism to reach the capstan.
