RETIREMENT, (PARTIAL):

I have now ceased to take on any new orders for machining castings apart from plain wheels for diesel locos.

Several customers have used Walsall Model Industries to machine my castings and mount them on their square ended, self quartering axles.
Please enquire for other contacts for machining.


FORM TOOLS:

At present I have form tools available 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. Link to form tool profile drawings. Tools to other profiles can be supplied to order.
Tool sizes for Gauge 0, Gauge One 1 and for Gauge 3 are 3/8 x 3/8 x 4″. £45.00 each plus delivery.
Tool sizes for 3 1/2″ gauge are 1/2 x 1/2 x 4″. £50.00 each plus delivery.
Tool sizes 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.
