Since it got dark and too cold to work outside, we carried on in the workshop to repair the damaged platform segment (this is the middle of the 3 segments that makes up the whole platform) which we dropped the other day (from the top of the scaffold tower  onto the concrete!). We removed completely the broken 89mm CLS timber from one side of the segment and cleaned off the old glue joint etc.

We then put on a new piece of the 89mm CLS timber, 1400mm long, all sanded to remove old dirt, onto (glued and screwed) the 1st segment of the platform so that both platforms are now the same design and have the same method of assembly.

We are now ready to build up the second scaffolding tower later on when we are lifting the very long and very heavy steel I beams!!
