and ........

Poor Fred is feeling a bit left out so we better have a look at what he's been doing today.  Fred may say that size doesn't matter but he's still very proud of the size of his latest job!

Not part of an Engine but still steam related:-   This is a main steam pipe for the boilers on the Baglan Bay Power Station that is being built in Port Talbot, S. Wales.  The pipe is 4.5 mtrs long, 14" N.B. and 20mm thick.  We have been asked to reduce the bore at each end & weld prep for on site fabrication.

And as he thinks the last photo of him didn't show his best side here's another to keep him happy!

You may want to enlarge it to have a better look - and then again you may not!

You may notice a new boy on the block so we'd better introduce:-

Mark (Ronnie) who joined us at the beginning of March.  

He soon made himself at home and spent today playing in the boilershop with Mike:-

Also known as " Flange & Rivet"  the deadly duo spent the morning flanging or for a less technical description:- 

 Mike heated it, Ronnie hit it, Mike heated it, ...............  Until it was done.


Xmas as usual was busy - lots of visitors and a bit of fun!

Bye Bye to another job!  Back home for the New Year - Look forward to seeing this Engine rebuilt as it's going to be a little beauty.

Not the best item in the world to get damaged!  But send us in a new casting, we'll have it skillfully machined by our Fred and everything's soon sorted (except perhaps a proper stool for Fred!)
