I was up very early and headed out to site to perform a test fitting of the column.

At this stage all the welds were just tacked.

All worked out well and I was able to mark up the exact plate positions for securing the base of the column.

By 9.30 am I was finished and headed back to Mundaring to meet Ian for a coffee and then to help him offload a matress.

Once back home I worked my way through all the welds making them more permanent.

Sunday

I clamped all the bottom plates in to the marked up position and then drilled 12 mm holes through.

Monday thru Friday

I gradually applied two coats of cold galvanising to all the welds and raw steel surfaces.


Test fitting all ok
