Pains Wessex Flare Box/Dry Box Holders

Hi all.

I'm looking to get pair of Stainless Steel holders for the old-type (square) Pains Wessex Flare/Dry Boxes.

Specifically ones with a clamp-on fitting arrangement for the A-Frame, not the ones that would screw in.

Can anybody tell me where could I get these, or get them fabricated for a reasonable price.
Cheers.

Matt.

why do you want to put a couple of yellow blobs on your A Frame, they just seem to clutter things up. What do you plan to store in the boxes?

Thanks guys.

I had contacted GNG Engineering last week and although his work is very very good, the price is a bit steep for me especially for 2 holders.....however 1 might just do the job.

Humber don't do the square type anymore, only the round type.

Will have to contact SDS & BMC and see if they do the clamp type.

Lastly, as the name suggests, I keep flares in one of them and want it located somewhere convenient and easily accessible ��

I've seen his work - it IS absolutely excellent - perfect angles, no visible joins and mirror finish. But yeah - £££

Compared to most other bits I've bought for my RIB I don't think they're badly priced! 2 jockey seats cost me a thousand quid. Electronics... well it's best not to say. Trailer bearings Hmm.

Etc
