All our tanks are handmade using time honoured techniques – All separate components are hand formed from 1.5mm thick sheet aluminium (2mm in the case of oiltanks), then rolled into shape on the English wheel before being Oxy acetylene welded as the original alloy tanks were. Then its back on the wheel for many more hours rolling until the tank takes shape, then its ground and linished and finally painstakingly polished to give a mirror finish.
Because the tanks are hand made it means that no two tanks we make are actually the same, making each and every TAB tank unique.
