    That is how it shows up (or doesn't) for me, yes. The rest looks​ great though!

    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).

    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.

    Undoubtedly. I just couldn't resist the lame play on words. I spend countless hours making things of small value or consequence, but I'm having the time of my life. And...I almost never get paid.
    I will say again though that Wargrade's plaque is a wonderful piece of craftsmanship.
