Screw couplings

Postby garethashenden » Mon Feb 20, 2017 6:09 pm

I am in need of a few screw couplings and I'm wondering what is available. I have seen the ExactoScale ones and the Smiths ones and I feel that I have heard of others. What is everyone's recommendation? I don't think they need to be working, but scale rather than over-scale would be nice.

Hi Gareth,

Masokits supply very nicely proportioned etched screw couplings components. The catalogue is available here: https://traders.scalefour.org/masokits/

If only there were a source that didn't involve printing out an order sheet and writing an English cheque - Michael's stuff is so nice, but his business practices are so 19th Century!

Gareth, if you want to try the Masokits ones I think I may have some left that I haven't assembled. They look good and go together well (recalling always that they are Masokits products), the reason I decided not to use them is my eyesight just isn't up to using 3 links in an operating session. I'd have to wear an optivisor all the time!

Let me know and I can put them in the post for you. Then if you think it's worth pursuing I will get out my quill and inkwell to send in an order since there are some things I am interested in and was planning on having them shipped to my mother's for collection in April.

Masokits couplings are very nice.

That's very kind of you Neville, do you have my address?

I managed to find them in the jumble of part-used etch frets, there are it seems parts to do half a dozen. Rather than try to cut the fret up I'll just mail it to you along with a couple of the pencil leads. Somewhere I have the instructions, I'll scan them later tonight, the rest of the afternoon is conference call hell.
