|The two on the left are from Hancock's, on the right is the window screen|
|Closer view of the meshes. Notice the upper right has thicker thread running vertical.|
The next step is to measure from the chains to the fighting tops and from the fighting tops to the cross tees. Now for each measurement add the width of the chains and the fighting top platforms. Now cut rectangles out matching the recorded measurements, making sure to orient the thicker threads for the long measurement and the thinner threads for the short side.
|Cut the rectangle pieces then cut diagonal across from corner to corner to make two ratlines from each rectangle|
Hold the thread in place until it sets then lay it aside to dry.
Cut the tails off and glue each ratline into place.
That's it. Hope this one is helpful.
