PostSubject: Will this fit a Brazilian Bay ? would anyone be interested in one ?   Wed Jan 18, 2012 8:21 am

Hi all, I am making these and want to know if they will fit a Brazilian Bay ? Tim kindly measured his jacking point but it's undersealed so I am still not sure of the actual size. if I can establish the true size I might be able to adapt these to fit your buses if they do not already fit. Any advice much appreciated. and please note, I will also be making the table leg and table top support bracket in the very near future if there is any demand.

Interesting idea - but not for Scooby - has a side step

I see no reason why it won't fit. The jacking brackets on a Kombi are the same as on a Classic Bay.

Good luck with the venture!

Hi Dubious, I know Quarry Bank well, used to live in Mogul Lane, Cradley, many moons ago. I presume the measurements you need are the spigot size, so Ive callipered up the spigot off the jack if this helps. (measurements are imperial, can't get on with metric!)







Hope this helps, good luck with project, unfortunately we use a tripod, but have you considered adapting basic bracket to hold a flagpole? Very Happy

Cracking idea, the bracket would work a treat with a flagpole.... now whyt didn't I think of that ! PS, I am only around the corner from Mogul lane, my uncle used to live there, towards the bottom near the old shop on the left :-)

Know it well, I lived in the left hand new semi half way down, backing onto the field. Is Cradley still full of drop forgings, chain makers and casting factories, used to be like entering hell with all the flames and sparks!

Lol, nope far from it, most of that business is long gone, as is most of the other industry in the area........ it's been replaced by the huge shopping centre and lots of additional housing developments.. You might even know my uncle, Dennis Parrish, had a son Steven and daughter Joanne, they lived in a detached house on the left just after a cul-de-sac

Sorry don't recall the name, was only there for a couple of years, before moving to Wiltshire in 77. (used to move around a lot in those days)

Just so I fully understand what you are selling, it is the orange item that fits in the jacking point, together with the orange base plate, then is it the chrome tube as well? Is this chrome tube in two or more parts? Finally, does this include the table top? How is the table top connected to the chrome tube?

I am just selling the orange items right now, I am working on making the table leg too (stainless steel, not chrome) there is a circular bracket that fixes on the underside of the table top, I will be making these also in the near future, but not yet. Basically, the brackets take the old 70's westfalia continental table leg and table, I am looking at making these available for all vans.

I have the Fiamma table leg and tripod for use inside/outside. If you made it for the Fiamma table leg as these are very popular already might get more sales. I use the Fiamma mount which screws onto the underside of the table then you insert the leg(pole) into that then into the tripod and thats it. Here is a pic you can just see my table just at the bottom right of picture.

We also have the tripod so can use our existing leg and table outside of our Kombi.

We use the tripod inside aswell but sometimes your legs can get in the way a bit but I didn't want to cut a big hole in my floor for the mounting. This is a pic of the fitting under the table. The legs come in 60/70cm length
