At present I can supply form tools in HSS Moly tool steel for cast iron or mild steel, or in HSCo tool steel for stainless steel for Gauge 0 Scale 7, Gauge 0 Fine, Gauge One Scale 32, Gauge One Fine, Gauge One Standard and for Gauge 3 Standard, 3 1/2″ and for 7 1/4″ gauge.

Tools for Gauge 0, Gauge One 1 and for Gauge 3 are 3/8 x 3/8 x 4″. £45.00 each plus delivery. Add £15.00 for double ended tools.
Tools for 3 1/2″ gauge are 1/2 x 1/2 x 4″. £50.00 each plus delivery.
Tools for 7 1/4″ gauge are 1/2 x 1 x 4″. £60.00 each plus delivery.

The G 1 Fine tool can also be used on G 1 Standard width tyres where a 1.5 mm deep flange is preferred.
The tools have the same profile all down the end of the tool and can be sharpened by grinding a small amount off the top face. Mine usually profile about 80 to 100 wheels between sharpenings.

The fine standard tool is to the earlier standard, retaining a taper on the back of the flange to avoid the chances of accidentally cutting a step should the casting be postioned slightly more tightly on the mandrel than its predecessor.
