7th April. Just attached the cables to the roof of the workshop by first fixing an upright to one of the purlins and then a batten from that to one of the rails. The attachement to the rails is just ~ wedged under. The wood is Siberian Larch left over from the rafters and battens respectively.
The batten had a copper strip running on it's upper edge and the cables are held to the upper face by fabricated copper clamps. The clamps are made from flattened 10mm copper pipe comming out as some 50mm long and 15mm wide and 2mm thich. They are bent to shape and fastened wiyth two stainless screws. The copper strip is fastened with bronze ringed nails.
