The video also shows how to install the thread blocks. These blocks are used when the spars on a ship/boat model are too small to drill holes through, or are made of metal, or in the cases where the scale of a model is so small that making any other sort of blocks is prohibitive. The blocks are meant to be used especially for ship in bottle modeling, where the rigging lines are installed so that they can “operate”, i.e. the line has to move back and forth through the blocks.

Thanks to John Fox III on Vimeo for this great video.
