The repair of cultural artefacts, keeping alive our history. The Metalcock onsite process is the most effective method of truly repairing cast iron, where the iron is left in a stress free, and sometimes greater strength condition. Welding of historic iron always results in increased stresses and often failure of the weld, destroying the parent metal permanently. Metalock repairs can usually be done in-situ if needed, and on material that is decades old.
Some of the repairs our members carry out include:
Heritage items & architectural Sections – columns, balustrades, fittings and supports & bridges, beams, copings.
Machines - steam engines / trains, vintage and veteran cars / trucks, presses, etc.
Other items - statues, church bells, piano frames
