265: Saturday 21st December 2013

Today I fitted the new bolts that I ordered (again) to replace the countersunk screws. Good job really as the whole bank of 15 batteries had shifted to the right and were not sitting on the supports any more. The bracket on the end had busted off as it only had small screws in it. I shifted the batteries back and fixed the end back on with much bigger screws.
With the new bolts I could get a spanner on them and get them nicely torqued.
I put hold down straps across the top and hopefully they will help stop them from shifting. I really can't be asked to make yet another metal rack at this point in time. I hope to get some Lithium batteries soonish.
