Whats Happening ?

13th October 2009

Trevor and Adrian are joined by Norman and begin work on widening the inner gates.  Adrian starts up the 22RB whist Trevor and Norman attach lifting strop to  the hook block. The large sections of timber which are to be attached to the gates are hoisted from where they have been stacked, to where they can be worked on.  

Each gate has 3 large bolts running horizontally through the gates from style to style which have to be cut so that they can be withdrawn and lengthened.  Norman attacks them with a large angle-grinder and once removed Trevor sets about removing all the rust with a smaller angle grinder..
