used to hire me cranes out to do a few of these with British Water Ways.

Done quite a few over the years and also used to make the lock gate collars, for the top 'hinges' ..... IIRC there're some pix of 'em in me thread somewhere, or maybe somewhere else on here .

these things .......





Was always an interesting job .... but always bloody cold ... winter maintenance job ..... local canal is seasonal - holiday / pleasure water way

Used to bend those 'U's cold ... made a former for 'em, for me 60t on press .... 80 x 25 solid
