  8. *** ONE LAST PUSH BEFORE WE RESORT TO FABRICATION *** We are still looking relentlessly, more spec below.. 10ft diameter or just over, ideally 12 arms 12 sides, folding, robust (not a garden/domestic umbrella) Tilt and shaft size are not critical details again and can be worked around. Please spread the word, ask your showland friends, look in the corner of workshops and yards.. Things sometimes turn up in the least expected places. Cash waiting! All help massively appreciated.

    Andy, we met at Leed's Baby Valentines do, last week and we're discussing the LEDs on the front. In addition to the flashing led in series, we talked about your use of (what looked like) small 1/2p sized switches that were mounted behind panel and switched between one circuit and the other. What are they? Do you know if they are still available?

    Hi Graig,

    It's good that you saved these patterns from being burned as it is a shame that so many had been destroyed. 

    May I use parts of these patterns in my own please.

I can make then in most styles and themes, they come in mild steel unpainted, but I can easily paint the frames, or we have a zinc coating as well. all stalls come complete with printed banner, back panel, side panels, lighting and electrics. here is some ideas using my current stall
