Jockey Seats

My RIB is with a friend who does glass (of the GRP vareity!) work to tidy up a few bits and i was chatting to him about jockey seats and their extreme over-priced'ness, the news, my friends, may be good!

I know there has been several discussions about making them, where to get them, etc. etc. so - lets design our own and get a batch made?? I am quite confident between everyone here we can come up with an excellent design.

Rough initial calculations (really rough) would indicate we need to get a requirment for 10 together to make them affordable (250 each). I will be having one, if not two (havent worked out the space thing yet).

What do you think? Good idea or not? Anyone interested?

Dan

My self and the friend Gavin(who owns the other half of the rib) are at this very moment making a mould for building single jockey seat units. When we turn out the first one we will post a photo on ribnet and see if anyone wants one.

the aprox size is as follows 20" long 28" high 7" wide at the top 12" at the bottom.

the seat height can be altered very easy afterwards, and we are following the design that John suggested.( do a search)

so far we have spent 150 (100) on materails and are still finishing the mould.... , but the mould is the hard part......

Well we are based in Dublin, But Its as easy to throw out 4 as to make 2, or what ever you want.

When we make them We will post picks on ribnet and you can deside if you would like one or two, for a small fee of course....... to cover the costs

And yes we will buy Alan Loads of pints when I meet him, hopfuly at the Ribnet mass meeting..........

Of course there can be some beer tokens! Courier / even a drive over will result in a substantial saving over the 500 or so costs that i had previously been looking at!

Keep me posted please.
