NFM not selling off cuts anymore?

No only 4.5mm, and the guillotine cut on that is not great. 2 or 3mm needs to be 1/2 sheet.

..And close to Muizenberg we have a large area of hitherto unused ground, close to the sewerage settling ponds where such an installation could be made, not 300m from the sea

The Ashkelon plant in Israel has been in continuous operation since 2009

We obviously cannot rely on our storage dams to fulfill any future water requirement, so a whole new approach is needed

The potentially best solution is an efficient, solar-power driven desalination plant, or several of these plants in and around Cape Town.  The sea is right on our doorstep, from mid-September until April we have ample sunshine and the efficiency of these devices increases all the time

A few years back we had the "load-shedding" which prompted many people to invest in photo-voltaic panels, so now we have a fast-approaching water crisis

The time to tackle it is right now.  The central govt neither has the inclination, ability or foresight to see it through, the Cape Town City Council is wedded to out of date ideas and is tied down by bureaucracy.  They would not consider an efficient Israeli-made system as it would involve them trading with Israel...!   Is our supposed political correctness going to supercede the supply of clean water to Cape Town?

Two more questions please - what is the shelf height between the top shelf and the one below it?  Do all the shelves have the same height, or are the top two larger?

Thank you

Coming together. Heatsinks are nice, all boards have mounts. Will powdercoat this week. I don't yet have a top as NFM have stopped selling anything under 1/2 a sheet.. The faceplate will be basic, I'll get to something decent once it is working.
