RETIREMENT, (PARTIAL):

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

Different machinists have their own preferred methods of mounting wheels:

Walsall Model Industries can machine my castings and mount them on their square ended, self quartering axles. Insulation where required is inserted across the individual spokes.

Both Richard Hersey and Steve Ross use Tufnol hub insulation where required, mounting the wheels on round-ended, telescopic jointed axles quartered and kept in position with a taper pin.
Their contact details can be supplied on request.
