Tracks

The first job was to try and make some tracks, commercial systems being very expensive. After a number of different approaches failed we tried welding steel plates to the chain, this seemed to work well and using a 30 ton press we were able to make the plates fit the track nicely.


The tracks did work well but due to the amount of current required to drive them they were changed to wheels 3 days before the rehersal day at the BBC.
