ENSLEY MIXER - Part 7
Added the h-columns to the sides of the mixer. These beams don't appear on the early photos of this type of mixer, but, most show them in more recent photos. Perhaps there was a strength issue with the mixer sides. The beam was .100 H-Column with spacer strips glued on to pack up the sides between the rivet bands. I also added webbing to the column cross pieces at the top of the mixer. And, finally, I added the top strip reinforcement in both directions, using brass and styrene scrap .
