Hello - gone through stores & largest stainless bar stock we have is 20mm

No idea when we’ll get larger in because we only order for specific jobs - sorry :(

That's a shame....:(......I do appreciate you looking at work for said material and interest regarding this and thank you for replying.....(y)

Happy Christmas to you and yours.....:)(y)

I stick my preston feeder arms on the front leg and use a insert (round to square) which allows the arm to be swung side to side at any angle, up and down is controlled by the position of the support section

I tried a similar option on my feeder arm Mick with the top shoulder of the insert cut off and to be honest it was a bit faffy and not very secure/stable....Hence the stainless steel converter......My quest/search continues for a machined part....(y) :geek:

they are still open on and off

yet they havent done owt to the stock apart from cutting to size and the required angles, since I saw the stuff better part of a six month ago

apparently they are heavily involved with the new arty farty building in folkestone and spend their time on those projects, more money I suppose

Would/could your Dad make me a wooden feeder arm to go with it Mick?:oops::love::ROFLMAO:
He can pretty much make anything in wood Mark. It’s his hobby. He’s a huge shed in his rear garden full of saws, laities, drills, planers, biscuit cutters basically you name it he’s got it. It keeps him out of mischief and from under my mum’s feet. 🤣🤣👍

He’s been making these for the kids on their street. He’s a big softy at heart. A big big softy. 🤣 A423CE8A-C91D-4D71-B3B0-A56CEED853B9.jpeg

Ask Dad if he could make some wooden feeders for our Sly and Pete!...... Surface fishing for beginners!:love::ROFLMAO:......Although saying that Pete's club rules would probably ban it!:geek::p:ROFLMAO:

He has. Sly said he’d pop through and pick them up. That’s was July 1997. 🤣🤣

Good evening Mick,

Basically it's an extension I need making so I can rig it via a Boss Box multi holder mounted on the front legs of the foot plate to which I can mount a Feederland Pro feeder arm which will give me the option of rotating the said arm in any direction....

....Being the legs are square on our Boss box foot plates, at present the feeder arm clamping mechanism only clamps on to the four corners of the foot plate leg.....This part will solve a problem that's been bugging me for ages....:giggle:

Be well my friend...xxxxx
Get a bit of stick with a fork in it, sorted.

Next question.
