Superheater - Baffling!

On my visit to J R Goold Vintage Steam Restorations Ltd on 11th November 2011, Grant Goold showed me the pattern he had made for the superheater's supporting baffle plate from the drawings below.

The baffle plate is at the bottom of the central vertical shaft
The baffle plate itself
The bright orange saucer is not a Frisby (so I'm told) but the pattern to cast the baffle itself.
Upper face showing the strengthening webs
Lower face showing the cut-outs for the superheater support brackets
A quote for the final article to be cast in stainless or 'SG' steel is awaited.
