As my first solar frame blew out of the ground in a huge storm last year I have been saving up for solar frame mark 2 which I began today. My plan for this frame is more steel, deeper in the ground and a lower angle (35 deg instead of 60 deg) so it is not so much of a sail and 4 smaller arrays instead of the 2 previous big ones. We have 10Kw of panels so with the lower angle we will still have more than enough power. I got one frame done today and it came up pretty well. Only 15 more to go. Please don’t laugh too much at my welding I am very good with a grinder so it will look great in the end. I do like the Strong Hand welding clamp I got at M&G Industrial in Canberra. Not cheap but you get your moneys worth it is a serious lump of metal, the name says it all. If only I could weld as well as it held the steel. It worked perfectly much better than the previous cheap one that is somewhere in the paddock where it landed in a fit of frustration – I will probably find it one day with the slasher.
