A plus one for Nick from me as well, I have used him for many years and his prices beat most others.

Ordered all of the steel for the chassis today from Parker Steel, we've ordered it cut to size and delivered to our metalbashers in Eastbourne. Best part of 850 with the VAT.

Expecting axles and wheels any time now, and have put in for the pivot pin and bits to be turned up next door.

The big 250 X 100 X 10mm box section arrived last week, just waiting for that to be sawn to size, then it has to go away (local) to be squared up on a big hydraulic press. The biggest sides are domed by about 5mm, so we can't bolt the bearings to it until it is squared up.

Same happened with the 6-wheel trailer build.

Plenty going on, and mucho money being spent!

Axles and wheels turned up, stored outside under a sheet on the pallet they arrived on.

Big box section has been cut and I took the two pieces up to be squared up on an hydraulic press locally, did that after posting Phill's Stuart-Turner gudgeon pin.

The five pieces of the front axle pivot are in manufacture, they will be made out of 316 stainless, including the pin, and we will make the spare pin out of EN16T that we bought in 2011 and never machined.

Is the Sankey conversion on hold at the moment. Seems to have gone quiet??

No, Charles, Philip has been living in it for most of the past month or so, he has got most of the insides done, hot water, solar panels, cooker etc.

He first used it in June at the Stanford Hall Land Rover get together.

Waiting for the stainless bits to be drilled, but got a quick shot of the turned parts today.

The guy who does the milling had a foot injury after a stainless bar rolled off the saw table and hit his foot.

The second pivot pin is made from EN16T steel, which we bought as a backup in 2011 but didn't use.

Pre-cut steel delivered today, big bearing carrier box sections being machined.

Picked up the stainless bits as well from next door.

I have to make the big nylon washer up for the thrust pad, material is here.
