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.


WEB SITE IMAGES:

I have recently enlarged my castings images from the earlier 85 dpi resolution to the higher resolution of 103 dpi as that now seems to be the new standard for computer screens. To see these slightly larger images and your computer is showing you earlier images stored in your cache from previous visits instead of the new ones on the web - you may need to empty your cache.

RESTOCKING:

The foundry is very busy at present leading to an increased lead time between receiving waxes and returning castings.

Revised 9 July 2021.
