If you look at the third shot of the marmite bottle it should be possible to print in a 5mm hole for you to insert a length of M5 threaded rod. I should be home tomorrow lunchtime and I will warm up the RepRap for you.

Should be home for lunchtime. Hospital wifi is terrible! I am going to amputate the basal torus leaving just the connecting cylinder. Then "bore and tap" an M5 threaded hole through it. You should have something worth while at tea time.

I can see how it would have been made at the patten shop - but I bet there were a few "words" whilst doing it!!!

OK. This is what I propose to print. Tell me if I have got it wrong!









It now takes 1hr 45min to print but only costs 10p!

You have mail! The postmistress insisted she had to know what it was "it is a 3d print of an LNWR end bracket"...

Just to finish off this completely off-topic thread, here is the luggage rack bracket pattern, a casting and offered into position inside the carriage.  Rack itself yet to be made.

Thank you again Ralph.

I wondered what had happened to it! It was actually a very simple CAD design. But to be honest I did feel sorry for the patten makers shop when I printed it...
