It gives me huge pleasure to present to you the all new; demountable, modular, joined by over-centre catches, locking castor, smooth running and gliding counter unit, thanks to Mr Alan Bradshaw and his team of technicians and joiners.

Alan demonstrates here one finger manoeuvrability of what used to be a ten ton monolith that tried to kill our Chairman every time he loaded or unloaded it. https://youtu.be/LNF92BzC7Do
