Past Restorations : Fingerpost Repair
We recently repaired this damaged cast iron post from an old roadside fingerpost sign. The signpost had been under restoration for some time by another restorer but when the post was hit by a vehicle and snapped off at ground level they informed the local Parish Council that they were unable to repair the post. The below-ground part was broken and unable to be salvaged but, undaunted, we designed and manufactured a replacement `footing`. We also replaced the heavily rusted tube which holds the sign`s finger arms. The post was then cleaned back to bare metal before repainting and installation, ready for new arms to be fitted. This was all achieved at a fraction of the cost of a new post.
