Arthur Beale has made it through to the final voting stage for this prestigious award. The final voting has now finished so now we have to wait until 17th November to find out how we have done. We have already done pretty well by making to the finals and we were up against a lot of powerful competition as Covent Garden is bursting with excellent shops. Whether we win or not, thanks for your votes! Hope to see you soon.

We had a small but select gathering in the wonderful Arthur Beale basement for a talk about wire ropes and their various terminations. We went through the different wire materials and constructions then demonstarted the hydraulic press for making ferrule secured eyes. After that we used the roll swaging machine to secure an M8 threaded stud to the end of a 5 mm stainless wire. We then moved onto a hands-on demonstration of Nicopress tools and finished by making a 2 mm stainless...
There are still places left for this evening talk and demonstration in Arthur Beale's Basement!
What you will learn:
We will explain the different types of wire ropes available plus give a short description of all the termination options including ferrule secured eyes using our hydraulic press and roll swaged fittings.
