Re: EBMA Material Stand

Pleased to say that we've finally received the plastic storage tubes today. These are 360mm long with an inside diameter of 7.6mm. The outside diameter of the caps is 11mm. Cost of a tube and pair of caps is 40p with P&P at £3.00 for one to probably rather a lot of them. We've also just produced...

Hi Terry,
Thanks for that response, very useful. Not sure we've got any solutions immediately but certainly food for thought.

Cheers

Re: EBMA Material Stand

The Material Stand is nearly ready to add to the website, just need to do the assembly instructions. However, I'm still working on the optional tubing. The longest metal rods that I've got are 335mm long with most being slightly shorter. The Evergreen strips are 360mm long, but would you not store t...

Re: EBMA Material Stand

Going back to option 2. Can it have 6 drawers then I’d store my plastikard off-cuts by thickness? you could even etch them 10,15,20,30,40,60 Hi, yes it could be produced with six drawers, but I think it would be a custom unit. Having drawn up boxes for Martin, I've started planning a more plastic o...

It'll be interesting to see the price when he restocks as I'm struggling to match without buying what's probably a lifetime's supply. Unless he's already got a lifetime's supply and the stock level is just what has already been cut to length.

Re: EBMA Material Stand

I sort of like the idea, but in my case at least I wonder where I'd put it. It's too deep to fit on my workbench and wouldn't really leave me enough room to do any work in front of it, particularly because I'm a very untidy worker. If you have drawers to open on the base that would be even worse. S...

Re: EBMA Material Stand

Thanks Les, That's useful information. I'd been looking at narrower tubing (5mm ID), so knowing the dimensions of what Phil sells and therefore people already have is useful for altering the 'holey' parts. Question - if rod/wire etc is stored in the tubes, would you put a stopper on the top? Reason ...

Guys this is supposed to be a thread about the EBMA products, can we please bring it back on thread, or start another post elsewhere? Tube storage - I am looking into it.

Re: EBMA Material Stand

I would guess that the picture of the thin wire/rod is for illustrative purposes only. otherwise lots of thin bits to stab the hand or even worse enter the eye. My preference for thin wire is to use the plastic tubes with end caps sold by various suppliers. That way the sharp edges are protected.Ho...

Your laser-cut containers look like a much better bet.

We can certainly achieve something similar. I'll draw something up tomorrow

Re: EBMA Material Stand

Thanks for the responses. I think we'll go with the version with two drawers and a set of holes, i.e. option 1. Would it be possible to make the top section into a number of equal section so that one can store the Evergreen strip by thickness as I am forever sorting for a particular size, decide tha...

Recently on his workbench, https://www.scalefour.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=89&t=6907#p76842 , Ralph has made a material stand. He's subsequently passed the idea over to us and we've developed into something that fits within our range of units and is hopefully of interest to yourselves. The devel...

Well spotted, I think the photo must be a test cut. We quickly realised the issue during development and I've just checked that all of the stock are cut the other way, i.e. grain runs along the timber.

Sleepers are 0.8mm thick and cut from the same stock as the Society sleepers. We have 1.5mm ply in stock so could cut from that if wished.

It's been a while but we have now added P4 A5 trackbases to the range. We also added EM B6 and B7 last autumn.

Thanks. Adding extra holes wouldn't be an issue, but, unfortunately I've got absolutely no idea about 3rd rail - any pointers on where I could look up the necessary info?
