Mast Base

Post by Gwendlethred »

My Mast Base is looking pretty tired and it recently jammed, pulled out of the mast and sheared the rivets. See pic.
So I've done a CAD model and I'm going to get one machined up from 5083 aluminium.
Is anyone else interested in getting one? The more I order, the cheaper they are.
If I can get a dozen or so then the price comes down to about £50 each.

The alternative could be to have a Tabernacle made. That makes lowering the mast much, much easier and safer.
