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
