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:

I now able to supply tyre profile form tools for Scale7, Gauge 0 Fine, Gauge One Scale32, Gauge One Fine, Gauge One Standard and Gauge 3 at £45.00 plus delivery each and 3½″ gauge at £50.00 plus delivery each.
The G 1 Fine tool can also be used on G 1 Standard width tyres where a 1.5 mm deep flange is preferred.
Form tools for other profiles can be supplied to order.
The Gauges 0, 1 and 3 tools are made from 3/8 inch square x 4 inches long tool steel, the 3½″ gauge tool is 1/2 inch square x 4 inches long.
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.
