A typical call just 2 days ago from Philip, from my past reviews you will note that I met Philip at the Drascombe Convention last February. By the Tuesday morning I received his original alloy tiller head and tiller in the post.
The tiller to be binned and his tiller head to be reused with a new tiller and extension. Note the before and after effect, all stock items, so on receipt of your tiller head a new tiller can be fitted, spray varnish finish and delivered within 7 days.
Please check out the post on this in more detail
His return to JLJ was now for a new MK2 Gaff. This is not a problem, again at least 10 fully varnished in stock.
Philip was in discussion with Dick at R&J Sails on the making of a new main sail, to ditch his old Mk1 gaff and upgrade to a bigger sail area of the Mk 2/3.
So agreed a gaff was to be put aside, however Philip still had a very usable gaff claw which was the original mild steel and galvanised version, this had a claw socket size of 1 1/4 inches !! Not 36 mm as the new stainless socket is.
Not a problem Philip says I!!! I will reduce that claw pin square section in the morning to 31 mm and then re spray varnish it at no additional cost. It’s now Friday 2 February, all done and final revarnishing will be completed over the weekend.
The point I’m making is with the manufacturing skills and expertise one off alterations or projects are not a problem, all is done in house at Dragon Design by myself.
With courier companies having a 3 metre maximum length we will be doing a delivery to the EX2 postcode of this gaff on 15/16 February, so if we can combine this 2 day trip with joinery, spars or fittings to your locality at the same time it will cut down delivery costs for everyone.
Here at Just Lugger Joinery we have an active workshop where all our products are made. Its here that we also take on alterations or unusual joinery work so if you cant find what your looking for exactly or have a request then please get in touch.
