    Think you can rule out Lewis, Youngman,Euro,Alto, or Eiger.

    Lyte has a diagonal pin through bracket, not sure about older stuff.

    Maybe that's why he needs to know what make it is.

    I bought a tower from TOP TOWER Ltd, (Halesowen, West Midlands B63 3HJ) it may be worth sending them a picture as they might recognise it.

    How interchangable are the parts, I've built loads and they all seem pretty similar?

    50.8 mm diameter is a standard dimension for scaffold tower tubing.

    Lewis, Lyte & Youngman Boss, all use this diameter tubing on their towers.

    Don't know, but thinking Lewis scaffolding is pretty similar.

    I have contacted one supplier of spares , hoping to get some additional horizontal braces.My measurement , between clip centres , is 1910 mm, Apparently one of the standards is 1800mm for several manufacturers. Hence the identity search.
