Hi all 
    just showing off    :D  my latest cages 

after completing the 10" Bergman cages I moved on to the 12" model 
I don't own any Bergman's so these all went to customers ..some customers got struts as well   :D





Then was asked to have a go at the fancy Peter Behrens designed cages        AEG WB2

centres..below



 



side view



All bends are hand formed ,using the bolt and nut ..bender 



Rear




side again 



these are to suit the 33mm centre mounting bolts, compared to marellis' very time consuming to make as two spokes must be formed from the one length of brass ...I like a challenge !





made the little clips to hold to motor bolts, these still need a polish ..and clean up 




am currently turning my attention to the 16" version to suit the very rare WB3 models 




Soon I get back to my marellis' , but this has been a nice change and clad to help in preserving some fans for other members here ..thankyou 
cheers from down here 
jan

The two Bergman cages that Jan made for me were wonderful.

Carlton, Vic  and Mike ,  :D
 Thanking you for the comments 

Vic ,
 I use very small diameter flux cored wire used with the bakers flux, gas of choice for a boilermaker is always oxy - acetylene. Small welding tip , with a very small  neutral flame  , I heat the brass till I see a small colour change then bring the solder in to contact ..steady hand needed  

below is the finished WB3 cages for Pete's monster AEG  
cheers and have a great day 
Jan
