    KENT TOOLING REEL 50m Composite Ratchet Reel

    Appeared in DIVER January 2017
    I recently had the privilege of being a guest at one of London's most iconic structures, Tower Bridge. We went into the engine-rooms, with the enormous coal-fired, steam-driven motors that raise and lower the bridge, a testament to the engineering feats of a bygone age.
    They showcase what could be achieved by casting iron and brass, then machining the metals to fine tolerances.
    I mention this visit because a recent arrival at the DIVER test centre had me reminiscing about those long-gone Victorian engineers.
    It's a ratchet-reel built from a combination of modern plastics and good old-fashioned stainless steel, using engineering of which I'm sure the Victorians would have approved.
