Slide Bar Brackets Cast
  It may have looked like we have been quiet this last month but nothing could be further from the truth.
The slide bar brackets have now been cast at Boro Foundry and a very fine sight they make! The castings will be heat treated next week and machined in the following two weeks.

The castings have been produced so early in the build to allow all components that are secured to or through the frames to all be assembled together. This will save time and money in the long run as components won't need to be temporarily bolted to the frames only to be removed again and the frames realigned.

We continue to receive donations to our frames appeal which will see the remaining few parts completed and the frame sub-assembly assembled during 2015 but we still have some way to go. As always we ask for your help, either with donations or by sending us items that can be sold or auctioned to raise funds.
