Doubtful- the market would be very small (ouch!).

That is funny, Andy! Thank you for a laugh!

Information on the 'our products' page could still do with improvement, specifically about the size and volume of the cylinders presented there.

Lengths are given e.g. 500mm and 600mm, is that measurement from end cap to endcap? Or does it include the piston tanks too.

What diameter is the tubing, 100mm is mentioned at one point, but the Skipjack wtc isn't 100mm, because I know it won't fit.

What's the overall volume of the cylinders, that'll give customers an idea on displacement and lifting weight of the finished model.

How much water will the piston tanks displace?

Also would be helpful to have the measurements in imperial too, that will be useful for older customers who never grew accustomed to metric, and also potential purchasers in the States, where they're still working old money.

Thanks for the comments, Andy...I appreciate them all.


The website is still very much a 'work in progress' job, as Ron sends me items I add them...I also point out to him people's comments, and he
then decides what to change, add or alter. I'll pass your comments on to him, and see what he thinks.


Thanks again...
