40 - Making a Chain Guard

 I thought I'd better make a start at making a chain guard. A friend in work cut me a sheet of 1.5 mm aluminium. The folders we have only make square folds so I took it home to come up with something myself.
 I had a rummage round the shed and gathered a few bits together. 

 Some plywood and 22 mm copper tube was enough to make a simple folder and it worked very well.

 I already made a template from some card so I'll use that to mark it out ready for cutting and filing.
