Default Ex-College National AH1 Restoration.

Took advantage of a dry day and knocked up a trolley for the AH1 using bits from my scrap pile again. Total cost about 20!!!. I knew I'd eventually find a use for that big old castor "frame"!!! It's rated at about 30cwt!!

Managed to get the engine off the rig today and temporarily bolted to it's new trolley. It will now get packed away in the "store" and wait it's turn in the queue. I acquired a small radiator/fan assembly with the AV1 and am toying with the idea of fitting that on the trolley with the AH1.

Must get the makings of a gyn together - just looks so much more 'handy' than the folding engine crane I have. How do you counter the tendency for it to do the splits BTW?

Pads of thick rubber under the legs, and keep them close to the job.
And I would advise scaffolding pipe instead of Steam pipe, it's punishingly heavy!!!

I guess you could also add cable tensioners between the points Nick if you needed to be really sure that it was solid, though as Charles says, the closer to the workpiece it is the more energy is transmitted downwards than sidewards.
