Terms: Payment before despatch, a non-refundable deposit of 50% is required for castings made to order.

Prices and specifications are those ruling on 1 January 2013, and are expected to remain unchanged in 2016, subject to correction of any errors or oversights by me.
So far prices have only been adjusted on Jan 1st of each year.
Before making any payment please enquire first for availability and cost of delivery.
VAT does not apply (not registered).

CAUTION: some live steam designs specify under-sized wheels for extra clearance, such as for the 'Project' tender. Others may have slightly under-sized drivers to allow for over-scale model flanges. Please check before ordering.

These castings are NOT expected to be strong enough to be gripped from the centre only when turning the tread. Castings should be gripped by their shoulders, or in the later stages between discs each side of the tyre. See Turning suggestions.
CUTTING TOOLS: lathe tools with replaceable tips having a small tip radius are ideal for most metals - but on cast iron they can produce a hard shiny surface and crumbling at the edges. I have had no problems with sharp pointed (roughing) carbide tipped tools.

ERRORS: dimensions and instructions on this disc are given in good faith and are thought to be reasonably accurate but they should be checked in case of errors in measuring, typing etc. They are offered for use at your own risk.
