Today we have been machining new fitted bolts for the slide bars. These were bought in as blanks with the fitted diameter rough turned and the thread finished.

We also did some painting of the new tender tank, bolted the tank down to the frames, tapped out the water flange holes and measured up for the studs for the water flanges.
