    I've managed to remove the duplicates, but it seems I need a bit more practice as a mod to get all the pics the same size :ashamed:

    I prefer to mark out as square as possible to make things easier to make the new plates and just off any spot welds. then I can grind through each spot weld to reveal the subsequent plates.

    I use an old wood chisel to help separate the layers . If you try and weld through a double dry seam you will pick up the intercontinental rust and have a poor weld.

    Always work from the middle going out when tacking else you'll get a hump in the middle.

    Then I just puddle, seam, linish and its ready for a skim of stopper, primer, seam sealer, top coat.

    That looks like a good bit of work to have fitted around the turkey carving.

    Thanks both. Got up early this morning and made it shiny. Now need to get all the ancillaries cleaned painted and re fitted. Good old zip wheel and epoxy should see it done. Just need to decide on the colours.

    Im very fortunate in that when I closed my business down, I took much of the equipment and made use of it in my workshop next to the house.
