A small selection of images showing what happened yesterday afternoon in the boiler shop, namely the fitting of the boiler’s steel backhead or doorplate. The new backhead plate ready for lifting into position.
The top left hand corner of the exisitng steel work of the backhead showing the newly ground edge of the old platework ready for welding to the new section. (Remember that the boiler is upside down in these shots).
The new section of the backhead in place ready for riveting and welding being checked by Phil Davison, one of the Boilersmiths who has been working regularly on our boiler.
