Trailer – first proper load test

Having got her safely out of the barn and reconstructed we set about checking her alignment on the trailer.

Mike F – my resident genius of all things steel ! came along with a neatly designed cradle for the tailwheel and some door tracking and a small dolly wheel. We temporarily braced it all up and the Sherwood slid neatly down the track.

Mike had also got a wind handle and strop. This was offered up to the back end post and would allow an easy one man wind to clip the tail into the cradle and hook on and wind up to the end. What a neat job Mike !
