    I think there may already be a picture of these on here somewhere, its a job that comes up from time to time, buffers to restrict the movement of a mobile but heavy machine.
    12mm laser cut stainless plates, here they have had a clean up, sharp edges removed and holes deburred

    Fabbing them up, the angle plate and a couple of clamps make it easy,

    A couple of the welds

    Ready for cleaning

    Noxious chemicals in use here, makes light work of cleaning though

    And what it does to the weld

    Ready to go, just the invoice to do and the jobs a good un

    Polinox P? Good stuff.

    Cut out in the bottom of the vertical plates to keep the amount of welding to a minimum or for cleaning purposes?

    Yes polinox, saves hours of work and properly passivates the job

    Gap in the bottom for both reasons, its food industry so wash through gaps are common features, didn't do it on the vertical though because that gets a bit of a bashing when the machine hits it,

    Hey I like his trolley things. Very handy! Neat job and I suspect very profitable for the work input

    You wouldn't believe the abuse and weight that trolley has endured, even moved a flypress across the yard on it few weeks a go.
