Re: Brake Pipe Clips

I forgot to mention that I'd do the design for you for free if it is a useful part and there is any general interest in it from the club.

Do you have a picture cus I can't think what it might be.

My memory of the job is getting hazy but from memory, I had two stainless flanges laser cut which bolt to the top of the dryer with two 5 or 6 mm cap screws. The old dryer was a ...
