All Loaded and ready to go!
Having put these two models together, I came across some chain given to me some time ago by Peter Bossum. This is ostensibly for attaching containers to Conflats- of which more later.
The first thing was to attach some chain to the steering gear of the 'Roller-see lower photo.
Thinking it would be a good idea to chain the Aveling and Porter 'Roller to the Lowmac, I was then faced with how to do it. The answer was to thread some fine wire through the end links and pass them through the chain holes on the Lowmac. The wire was then twisted to hold the chain, threaded through the 'Rollers wheels and secured on the opposite side in the same way. Still with me?
