Hello Paul
Try this link for the Aeromotor vane pictures. Gees I hope it works.

A really kind bloke gave me an ESCA cast brass tag the other day. If you want I can get a picture of it.

Cheers Scott

Aussie Iron. To answer your question, Danks did make troughs.

Thanks Hugh, I'll go and have another look. I'm sure it had Danks on the end. Doesn't matter, if it's available, I'll try and get it so it won't go to scrap. I'll line it and make the missus a nice big flower pot! -cheers Neil

A fellow collector sent me a pic of this pig trough that he purchased just a few weeks ago.Looks to be in good order.The Danks galvanised pressed end type troughs I have seen recently out in the paddock.I don't think the examples I saw were terribly old.It would have been nice if I was allowed to bring one home.
Scott,..?.. my apology for a slow reply for that windmill tail that you posted here.I don't know if I'm asleep at the controls or the results are late appearing here?Thank you very much for dropping that pic in!
Danks copied I think a 602? Aermotor,and dubbed it "Cooee".The tail is identical to your pic retaining the iconic Aermotor horizontal 'v' rib.I don't know how close the copy was as regards the rest of the mill.I think the 'Z' pattern Southern Cross mills also borrowed wheel design and various other details from Aermotor?
