I did clock you set of pollens on ebay the other week, question, can they be converted to EM gauge?

Hi John.....I woudl see no problem, given I would simply adjust what I print to fit the particular wheels you wanted. I did have some em gauge wagons but sold them last year. If I know the axle point to point and b2b, and distance over the outside wheel faces no problem. The wheels are fitted when I assemble the 3 parts that make the body so arent removable. Currently the distance betwen the sides is 23.2mm.  Ill google the wheel specs and have a think, actually any of what im printing can be em come to that.

Thanks for your reply, first question is would you ship them in kit form? This would allow me to use my own wheel sets. Reading your description you had previously used Dapol wheels which the flanges are a bit big and the treads too wide for EM gauge. 

 

The pinpoints are the same as most OO gauge, 26mm point to point and the back to back is 16.5mm. Using Alan gibson wheels the measurement across the wheel faces is fractionally less than 22mm (this will be much greater with Dapol wheels)

 

Many thanks
