Latest update from the SDR

All tyres fitted. Rivets now in stock for fitting to the tyres. This has been the cause of limited progress this week.

The front wheel set is in the lathe the journals are within 0.007" of true. This is acceptable. The journals and boss faces are being polished there will be a small charge for this.

Harry Frith is going to NDT the wheel sets on the 24th.

By the end of next week we expect good progress to have been made on the riveting of the tyres and profiling of the wheels. We are looking at delivery being in the first week of August.
