Backhead Doorway Flanged

Thursday, March 7, 2002 by Martin Adams

We have started to form the new manhole doorway in the new backhead. The female die was bolted to the bottom of the new backhead plate. The die was then clamped to a platen. It was then started down by heating and beating down with wood faced mallets.
