#567 ... Moral Fibre

Michael & Simon quietly working away joining up our world inside their mobile workshop ... while everyone else is rushing around christmas shopping. Theses two guys work for CityLink and were going through the laborious process of joining all the 250 micron fibres .. in each cable about the thickness of your thumb there are 312. The machine he is holding fuses the two pieces of fibre together .. doing all the alignment and even showing you images of both axis .. sort of a high tech "hand"-draulic device that auto-magically connects fibre to fibre. This photo was taken across the road from the Thistle Inn ... which was really handy for their cool drink after work.
