Re: Rivet Press 2

The Stores listing states that the Press Tool, combined Punch & Rivet tool, although out of stock, is occasionally available second hand from the stores. Please enquire.

Worth contacting Jeremy.

Sometimes these also appear on the Bring & Buy at Scalefour North or Scaleforum.

Re: Bill Bedford Coach Bogies

But has anyone encountered the apparent discrepancy in the problem with the brake blocks that I mentioned at the start of this thread? The instructions say virtually nothing about the brakes but there seems to be only one way of making the brake assembies and one way of fitting them, and that leave...

Re: Rails of Sheffield/Dapol ex-SECR box van 45374

The model comes with AGW wheels in OO. I suggest just swapping the wheels for P4 and seeing if it runs adequately with fixed suspension. I did this with a pre-production sample and it seems OK, but I haven't a proper layout or test-track to really evaluate it. The production team assure me that the...

Re: Jig for drilling crankpin hole

Hi Julian

Have a look at this on the CLAG website http://www.clag.org.uk/crankpin-drilling.html

I’ve used the jig and vertical drill method to drill the crank pin holes in some AG wheels with dimples. It worked ok :thumb

Good luck
