Do you have veneer? or can you mnake it? 0.8mm

Take a dowel a little bigger than the exhaust. Put the veneer in water and boil it. If it boils take the veneer out of the water and wrap it with strong tape around the dowel. Wait a day and remove it. Now you can glue it to layers and again put it around the dowel with tape. Let it dry and remove the tape.

Take some heavy duty aluminum foil and glue it, shiny side out around a dowel of the size used for the stacks.

Damn it… This takes me back a few years when we were touting a repository (finished up as a suppository) for hints and tips… at least htl indexed his tips… I just die mine :-)...

I personally avoid using non wood (that’s why I try to use my head [note double negative]) on my timber models.

Similar to GR8 above… however, somewhere I saw a build where there were 100+ 1/16” holes drilled in the ”shield” dowel… you would need to build some sort of indexing jig for the drill press.

Haven’t seen that one, however, have seen similar. You have prompted my brain out of neutral GR8... Was thinking it might be a job for lazer-man with ketchup (with and “S”) for my next build…

Thanks for all the help. I think I’m gonna try Duthcy’s approach. Going to boil some wood. Lets see how this turns out.

J’1974, I may have misinterpreted your question. If all you are after is drilling through a dowel to insert another for the shield you might consider one of these sets,

If I remember correctly it was $125 on the Internet (probably cheaper in $US). In building models I have found the need for various different sized colettes. As you can observe I have only used a few (most are still in their wrapper), however, this is a metric set used for non-T&J projects and found them invaluable. Just the 3 used have justified their cost when I consider the time I wasted (and would in the future) trying to centre the dowel by other means.

Guys I finally figured it out. It took me 2.5hrs but I did it. The exhaust heat shield looks AWESOME!!! Now its time to do the other side. I might make a blog how I did it.

that was a test piece from the bottom. I tried drilling through the whole thing and cutting it in half but it didnt work out quite the way I was hoping. But I do need to invest in a good drill bit set. What drill bits do you use?

You have done an excellent job making the heat shield and added as a favorite.

I have tried all kinds of brad point drills. For me, the Colt brad point drills are far above others. I also have found that speed is critical. On some things, l, I will try a range of speeds to find the best one.

G’Day Jason,
Another Brad Point Drill Bit which is Made in USA that I’ve bought is W.L. Fuller; good quality; just as good as the Colt brand I also have from France & Germany, IMHO.
