    One of the Stramclads by Speedeck/Stramit on page 72 would be my guess.

    I did start to look it up but am on a phone and it'd be easier on a bigger screen!!

    CAD software

    Draftsight here. Minimal cost and does what I need it to. Mostly 2d stuff for CNC cutting. Look at Plate 'N' Sheet for sheet metal development. Not actually a CAD program, but does the development which you then import into CAD.

    Cnc plasma or flame profiler

    I've never cut Hardox with mine so can't comment on that. I think the general rule with holes is that the diameter needs to be at least twice as big as the metal is thick to get something like a decent hole. I have been known to plasma the hole to get the position and then run a punch through it...

    Cnc plasma or flame profiler

    Mines a SwiftCut. Tis about 7 years old now and not been a lot of bother really. A few niggly things to begin with which were sorted under warranty but it generally behaves itself as long as its maintained.

    Cnc plasma or flame profiler

    Plasma. More versatile than the gas. 100+ amps and you'll be good to go up to about 25mm mild steel.

    Abrasive Discs

    I do have a rather large pile of 115mm stuff to get through first. If people would be kind enough to buy it all from me it would speed the process up somewhat!!

    Abrasive Discs

    Plenty in stock and I haven't had any complaints yet!!

    Abrasive Discs

    Just 115mm and 230mm I'm afraid. I tend to only stock what I also use myself and then I don't get stuck with anything if it doesn't sell. I did look into 125mm cutting discs a while ago but the was not enough interest to make it worthwhile to be honest.

    Abrasive Discs

    Blatant bump!! Plenty of 115mm and 230mm cutting discs in stock and ready to dispatch.

    Sliding barn doors on track etc

    Welding lift arm.

    Yep, preheat. I MIG them on, but either works. Building them up is a false economy in my opinion.

    Bearing and Gear pullers

    That's the SP set I have, bought it in an auction years ago for £50. Was smiling all day as in my mind i would have gone much higher!! Without doubt one of the most handy things I own and a select few quite often borrow it from me on the basis if they lose or break anything, they replace it.
