Fitted some of the console stuff today to get some idea of layout. started with the bits there is no real option on placement like steering and gauges. Not sure exactly how I am going to shoehorn the rest in the space even though the console looked enormous when picked up.
Still to fit a 6 way switch panel, large plotter, CD player with speakers, VHF, Battery switch panel and a grab handle in the remaining space.
I think the next job is to fix down the console base but it will have to wait as I need to fit new swivel pins to the Midget sitting next to it, plus work will get in the way for the rest of the week...........

I need a couple of small plates in 316L stainless to make up a pole (already have the tube) Nowhere seems to be able to supply locally, any idea where I can get a couple of plates posted out to me made to size in 3mm and 4mm sheet, but polished?

I need a bit 360mm x 120mm and another 240mm x 60mm in 3mm polished 316L. i would prefer the 360mm one to be 4mm if I can get it as it is the mounting plate for the pole.
I have some enquiries out but no replies from any suppliers as yet.
I can get the welding done in town but nobody really does supply near me.
I already have the polished 316L 2" tube, left over from an aborted project some years ago...

I'll have a look though the scrap bin at work tomorrow, I'm sure I can find something for you. Does it matter if it's thicker?

It depends on how much thicker, the offer is appreciated though as I have been phoning and emailing around all day and got nowhere yet!

Stainless Steel Plate

Hi Bruce,

Give Richard Austin Alloys in Glasgow a call
http://www.raaltd.com. They are the main stockist
in the WofS for stainless and will sell to the public.
I bought a length of stainless from them last week
and they were very friendly and helpful.

Alan

Hi Bruce,

You've probably tried them, I know, but Ardfern Yacht Centre got some 3mm 100mm wide strip for me last year. They had to order it and it took a while, but they usually have some bits and pieces in stock. It wasn't mirror polished though, so I had to use some 1000 wet and dry on it. Though it's not mirrored, there are no signs of corrosion so far.

Tony
