Foreign engines

Posted by RichardW1 , 26 May 2013 · 652 views

Following a good day at Railex in Aylesbury meeting old friends, and making new ones too, I have returned home with renewed enthusiasm
This afternoon I have been mostly making gears for my Dapol GWR 2-6-2 conversion.

These are to be M0.3 and the first is 14 tooth, machined directly onto a muff as the first gear in the final reduction train.

The pictures show the milling set-up for this tiny gear, with the resulting muff ready for drilling to 1.5 dia for the stub axles.

What was the source of your M0.3 cutter please?

Hi Tim I sourced them a couple of years ago via the Internet, they were made to order (full set of 8 cutters) made in China. Cost was around

Thanks for the reply Richard
