Back to the CCT….

Getting back to the CCT. On Thursday night I had a go at the roof and the fittings to make it removable.

I am still not 100% happy with the roof so I will probably revisit it once I have the formers sorted.

I initially ran it through my rollers to get the basic shape and then annealed each edge before making the tighter bed with my Metal Smith Drilling table – this is a substantial metal plate that is drilled and tapped at intervals and comes with clamps and a selection of different sized rods for assisting with making tight bends in sheet metal.

I then did a bit more work on getting the formers that I made earlier fit at either end and in the middle.
