‘Minnow’s’ Yuloh – Part 3 (Yuloh Links)





The epoxy cured overnight, and this morning I sanded the yuloh’s shaft in preparation for varnishing. I also started sanding the blade to give it a better finish. I’ll paint the lower part of the yuloh.

Until I receive a stainless steel pivot pin from the firm that is manufacturing it, I am reluctant to drill into the shaft to form a cavity for the pivot cup. I shall use the pin to shape a cup in an epoxy base – that is my plan. I’ll coat the rounded end of the pin with grease to prevent it from sticking to the epoxy. The reciprocal pieces should fit together perfectly.

I shall have to devise a means of suspending the pin in the epoxy so that no more than half of the ball is submerged in the epoxy. If that were to happen I would not be able to extract the pin from the cured epoxy without cutting into it.

Bill....first you are way to complimentary....thank you for that...please know the feeling is mutual. :-)

Fantastic amount of information on this post on Yuloh's...thanks for compiling all that. I am about to make some mods to my own as we got the shape of the foil on the blade reversed from the way it is supposed to be. It works and I am getting the hang of it, but I suspect I can make it much more efficient if I get that foil corrected.

Minnow is looking outstanding! Keep up the good work!!

From one of your links Bill, I found this wonderful video. Love the way that his sculling oar dobles as his rudder!
