That was top end of the caster, this is bottom end rolling out the stock ready to get rolled at the mill.

I grew up in aluminium/gunmetal/brass foundry , I'm always interested in the steel I've seen a bit at port Talbot , the scale of stuff blows my mind , I worked a bit in ebbw vale during decommissioning. Wherever you are that looks like a very modern setup , is it UK 🙏

Yes mate this is the brand new £65m Billet caster at British Steel. Along with an Italian company (Danielli) me and a few other British steel staff have built and commissioned it over the past year. It seen steel for the first time recently. Theres still a lot of good things happening  in our steel industry despite what you hear on the news.

That’s pleasing to hear, hopefully more British than foreign investment - the tide needs to change.

British steel’s Chinese owned but as it stands there throwing hundreds of millions at us. Take what we can at the moment.

There’s some rumours a few leneys swim about in there, some of the old mirrors definitely resemble but can’t be 100 per cent sure mate, as we’re a bit far south but proper old English carp. 
 

I really enjoy it here even though it’s a battle to put one in the net.. it will probably be 30 odd nights before one slips up it’s well worth the graft, cheers mate

Some stunners there, I fished a low stocked 50 acre estate lake for a few years after the original leneys became an obsession but they all came my way eventually the biggest came last can't find any pictures on phone but took these out of Chris balls book20240211_192330.jpg.6286d4c3a250b0129702a4247e06455e.jpg

 

They were massive fish size wise but not so heavy, stayed around 25lb for years then crayfish got in lake then they made just over 30.
