Fabrication

TJK's Fabrication department can fabricate bespoke projects to you needs.

We have been involved in some big projects none more so than The Man Engine the UK's largest mechanical puppet.

TJK were asked if we would be able to fabricate this for the Golden Tree Crew. R&D started back in December 2015 where we met with a group of highly talented Cornish Folk who set about discussing on the pro's and con's on such a massive endeavor and what we thought was achievable within the time frame. Then in Early 2016 when the plans had been agreed we started mocking up the main frame for the giant.

After a brief rest fabrication moved to the TJK workshops in Par, Cornwall where we started the main fabrication. The main frame was completed and then followed his shoulders, arms, legs and so on.

Finally assembly well held in the clay country as there was a need to find a building cable of housing such a huge project, even though a large space was found it still wasn't tall enough to the Man Engine to stand.

Pictured below is the MAN Engine unveiling in Tavistock on the 25/7/2016.
