henshaw collars

I am looking for info on henshaw tube sets. i live in canada and we do not have many tube manufacturers to chose from. I checked a price from henshaw and with shipping it seems very reasonable. I understand they are a large supplier in the U.K. looking for any information. Thanks

Spoke to the people at a recent RIB show, they appeared very helpful and clearly know what they are doing - no doubt other people here have used them, I haven’t yet.

Hope that helps,

Dan

Henshaws

They do make very good tubes but again have a word with Nick. He may be able to better the price and he makes great tubes.

Also for the lads up north there is Eurocraft in Leyland. They make the white water rafts and used to do the tubes for Osprey. Very helpful when my rubbing strake fell off a few years back. By arrangement they did a one day turn around for me.

I can also reccomend Eurocraft. Fast, friendly service, few mins from the M6 and a price six hundred pounds cheaper than other quotes for a 5.6 retube.

collars

I had my rib re-tubed at henshaws last year. Excellent workmanship, excellent service and a top notch result. Around the two and a bit grand mark for mine, just a basic re-tube with fittings including 4 handles/cleats and D section rubbing strakes. Drive in drive out. chuffed to bits. I believe they do collars for alot of the rib builders in this country and abroad. I spoke to lots of people before I had it done and almost everyone said they were the best in the business!
Hope this helps.
