RETIREMENT, (PARTIAL):

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


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 Gauge 1 and Gauge 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.
