Big Boys’ Meccano And Our Brilliant Young Design Engineer

You may well have read recently that Graphskill have started supplying Unistrut / Oglaend style metal framing systems. These systems are metal channels which can be used with nuts, bolts, washers etc to create just about anything from shelving to pipe support systems. It works just like Meccano – only bigger. Which is why we have taken to calling it affectionately as “Big Boys’ Meccano ”

So, along comes Max; Martin’s son who is on summer holidays waiting to return to his ‘A’ level studies in September. Max has a fabulous engineering mind – a natural. He was listening to our discussions about BBM (Big Boys’ Meccano ) and said he could do some design videos.

We had been pondering how to show people how to use channelling with our u-bolts to create a pipe support systems – “Leave it to me” he said. And that was the last we saw and heard of him for a few hours

And this is the result:

 

And of course, it goes without saying that we can supply all the component parts : http://www.graphskill.co.uk/1482651-metal-framing-systems-unistrut-style

We we have had a very busy week here at Graphskill. Not only has it been our busiest sales week, but we have added some exiting new ranges to our own line store

Firstly, we have started extending our Metal Framing System range to include brackets. We manufacture the brackets in house, so if you need a style not yet listed please do let us know and we should be able to accommodate your requirements. We have added single hole, and double hole “washers”:

Next, we have introduced a small range of Bright Zinc Plated fasteners – full nuts, half nuts, Nyloc nuts and washers.

And finally, our brand new range of “N – Bolts”.  N-bolts are a bit like a cross between a U-bolt and a C-bolt, and they have one leg shorter than the other. They are designed to clamp Angle frames. We have a range of standard sizes to accommodate the standard range of SSA (Stainless Stel Angle). From 40*40 upto 200*200. But a picture speaks a 1000 words as they say, so this is an N-bolt
