Bit difficult to gauge as the coal was supplied loose at GDSF.   However, we only burnt a bunker full each evening when generating, so probably more economical.  Size is less of an issue of course, but I generally go for big lumps.

That does sound like it is. I think I shall be ordering myself a lump of steel. Might cheat a little and see if I can find someone to set it up on one of those new fangled CNC things to drill the holes, although I suppose if I did some every evening it wouldnt take too long.

I was going to say can you give us a close up picture of how much of a bow has happened.

The amount of sag is about 6mm at the middle of the length: about the same as the conventional bars in use.

Been thinking a bit more about this and wondered if a stainless plate might be worth the investment ?

Tim,
If you did another, as the holes are all aligned, do you think there would be any mileage in welding a few webs along the back.

I am considering this as I am still in the build process, and I can get the initial holes knocked through on a water jet cutter.

There might be a case for webs Mark, but it is already quite heavy.  It may stay with that slight sag.  I have a few runs lined up over September, so will keep an eye on it.
