Picking a pair of these up later this week and the matching control unit. Each one weighs 20 stones!

Nice. :)

I've got some 833c (carbon anodes) if you have any problems.

I must get my version of these finished.

IIRC we had some really good sounds from a pair of 833s a few Owstons ago, and they really came on song when we got the anodes glowing red.

..or was a similar thing done with 833's ( I may have missed that one ) .

The GM70 one was Eggborough, pre 2006.
