In your first set of pictures, the seventh along is that a manual magnet on the fork tine

No Mate,
Nothin' wrong with your eye sight

It's 110 volts, but a handy bit of kit.
Handles 8' x 4' x 1/2" plates, no probs..
Used to save us tacking a lift eye in the middle of a plate for 'floating' it into position, on a sllng, hanging off a fork tip.

Being 110 volts it wasn't a drama if anything happened to the lead, But as it was only used for the last 'float in' part of the handling process, we never had any 'mishaps'.

Just flick the switch and on it comes.
Could always chuck a 110 genny on the M/c an'd trail a wire down yer boom. You could put a switch anywhere

It's up for grabs, if anyone's interested in it. Weighs about 40-50 kgs.


Here's a few more for you while I'm 'in the thread'

must have a rectifier some where along the line only work on DC

Must be built into it somewhere then? There is a 'turret' on the top of it. Might be in there. It works fine off a 110 V tranny though.

How about this then just get a power inverter 12 to 240volt

that's what I did as an experiment got a electro magnet from an old rota broach drill 110v (faulty drill) then got a small 300w inverter fitted a diode bridge rectifier in the inverter so now have 240vdc.............and it worked a treat

All you'd need for this unit's a 12-110V inverter then and you'd be in biz.
How'd the 110v drill magnet stick having 240V shoved into it. Should think it warmed up a bit?
Very interesting idea though. I see you're in to innovating. Just been looking at your concrete sleeper grab, back in feb.
Cheers,
Graham

Again, Thank you kind sir.

Think it's about time for a few words of explanation to go with some of these.

The bow plates,as you can imagine aren't particularly flexible, being 6mm plate.
Regrettably I've no pic.s of how we shape 'em, as it was always me 'driving' the camera and the rollers for getting these the desired shape.
Morgan 2500 x 10 mm Initial Pinch plate rollers were used.
First you make a hardboard template to get your shapes.
Then, cut the 6mm as required.
First roll it across the width, then across the length.
You lose a fair bit of your width shape rolling, but it's rolled enough to 'spring' as it comes out the other way.
Then roll it diagonally in three different directions from 'the corners'.
If you've had enough practice you end up with virtually the shape 'yerz looking fer', if not bang on.
Then you wrestle the damned things into spot and tack 'em in place, suitably braced. More hardboard for the 'top kick' strip and roll these a few times, length ways and diagonally again and 'Hey presto', nail 'em into spot.

The formed straight side panels have a 10mm Rad. and to keep this rad. following through the bow plate top corners we use a piece of 20mm round, rolled to shape and suitably positioned, at a tangent to the plate surface on the bow plates and the gunwale top plates.
The inner edges of these get edged with a 12mm round bar to finish off and prevent water off the gunwale from running onto the deck.
There you have it so far.
One hull ready, near as damn it, for consolidation. trim off all the odd 'sticky out bits' and onto the next phase.

More below again and before you ask, no the 'shop's not haunted. we ain't got a poltergeist who likes to 'move things around in the night'. All will be revealed further on.

For those of yer wondering what the box 'thingy' is in the stern compartment, this is a 'weedhatch', or will be eventually.
An access to the propeller, to get the weed, mooring ropes you've forgotten to stow away, or tesco trolleys from around the prop., without getting yer feet, knees, or nadgers wet.
We like to make 'em BIG, so's you can actually get a decent access.
Most builders make 'em for gynecologists to hone their skills in and I've even seen 'em where your average key hole surgeon'd think twice, before attempting to use it!

Whilst it is feasible to 'positionally' weld all the various joints, it's a damned sight quicker if you're working downhand and as we had 'other bits' to attach, both inside and out (rubbing strakes, externally and fitting out bracketry internally), we all had three Weetabix for breccy and 'get around it' one morning, when we're ready.

Damn, must've fell over in the night!!

Grind out any crap in the plate joints, brush it down and spend a day or two making 'kin sure it's gonna be watertight, on the bottom, at least!

A couple or four rolls of wire later and a few wear/rub strips at some of the vital / critical points, (remember - deep ditch = very shallow draft - design draft is 20-22"), to stop it wearing its a*se out on the bottom of the canal and we're ready to move on - again

For the statisticians amongst you, she's pushing about 4,500kg at this point, with probably 100kgs of it being MIG wire!!
