That is how it shows up (or doesn't) for me, yes. The rest looks great though!
All the Photos showed up for me.... All I can say is wow!! Amazing sign Sir...Amazing!
I think I'm going to plagiarize the heck out of your the jacking pin idea, I do a casting with the mold weigh in over 200lbs and getting the pats out without disorting the sand has been an issue. that is a beautiful sign.
Absolutely wonderful job and a lesson in persistance.
Thanks guys, it's been a learning curve holding the sand in place, it took a day to make the pattern and 8 days to get a useable cast!
But I know I can do it again now.
The jacks work a treat, you only need to get past the pattern and chain away but it's that first little bit that's the ball ache.
I will probably now weld nuts on top rather than the slot just to make it easier. I felt one turn on each would not overly stress the mold, one = 1.25mm (0.05 In).
Brilliant work Wargrade. Persistence pays! (I hope the job does too! Lol)
I'm getting a few quid, but nowhere near enough for the time expenditure, but I knew that when I took it on, now I have done one though....
Nice job, payment sometimes is in the satisfaction and achievement I feel.
I'll sort out some more of that Foseco coverall at the weekend, working flat out on the tools this week.
I will say again though that Wargrade's plaque is a wonderful piece of craftsmanship.
