Blog- Maurice's Blog - Fourth Board Complete

Recommended Posts

With so much rain, little work has been done on the scaffold today to repair the lintel... so the board has been completed.


The trackbed for the falling grade was cut and then fixed down after the top was all glued and 'square'.




The gradient flap had straight pieces of 12mm ply glued to it to keep it true, while the top 150mm or so was left to bend to make the transition onto the gradient.


You can see the straight supports in the three 'bays' furthest from the camera in the upside down view. The extra piece of ply on the diagonal fixes the falling trackbed to the brace while the top side is checked with a straight edge to keep the gradient consistent.
