I would request an induction and do it myself but the lead time is long and the welder isn't on the form. Ideally I could do with getting the thing done fairly soon.

I'm just after a relatively simple box frame to mount a big ice maker on (and fit a glasswasher underneath)
Kinda like this:

Hi

I have something similar sitting doing nothing at my allotment. I'll upload a picture later.

Cheers

Hi

I have these if they are of any use?

The silver one is 3-4 foot high aluminium(?) and the brown one is around 2 feet high metal. Both very solid.

Any use?

Cheers

Keith

Yeah, one of those might work
Brown looks like a regular cube? Aluminium one is taller than it is wide? If I can get measurements of the gaps between the bars I can work out whether the equipment will fit under them.
What would be easiest? I can meet you at the allotment or would you be able to measure them up next time you're there?

I’ll get some measurements over the next couple of days and let you know. Hope they’re of some use.

Hi

Sorry for the delay.

The measurements are (in inches)

Silver is approx

46 x 26 x 26

Brown is approx

28 x 32 x 32

Hope this helps and happy to show them to you if required. They're based in Aspley and I can be free during the evening.

Cheers

Keith

Fantastic. Looks like the brown one will be a good size. 
I have a van so I can come pick it up if that helps? When would be a good time?

Hi Matt

I can be there from 6pm anytime this week. Any good for you?

Address is Aspley Ln, Aspley, Nottingham NG8 5GY. It's basically the allotment entrance opposite the Bluecoat school.

Cheers
