After many months of determined effort, Colin Farrington finally completed the monitor and rescue line pulley assembly that will finish off the head of the ladders. Several "almost successful" attempts at producing a casting of the central swivel joint at home had resulted in unsatisfactory results, however, the day was saved by Mike Cotton who suddenly produced an original fitting and kindly donated it to the project in exchange for some skilled labour for his own project. A wonderful example of a hands on and "non chequebook" restoration! So, having overcome that hurdle, the next piece of the jigsaw was the replacement pulley wheel over which will run the TL rescue line. The original was missing when we obtained 240 FLM so Colin set about machining one from scratch! The result, a complete set of headgear which now just needs painting. This is a significant milestone as we had always considered it to be likely that these items would have to be produced " in house" and to have finally completed that job is is a major milestone reached. Thanks go to Mike & Colin!
