Castings for Steam applications

As we progress with pattern making, bespoke castings will be made available to Model Engineers and Full Scale Engine Owners.


Bespoke Castings (One offs)


We begin by designing and producing a pattern which allows for shrinkage of the Casting.
The Raw Casting goes through many processes from fettling to final polishing and enamelling to achive the highest standard of finish.
The results speak for themselves.


Full Size Railway Totem Signs


We now make bespoke, fully finished Station Totem (and similar) signs in Aluminium or Cast Iron.

The Totem signs shown above were made for Gent's Outfitters Ted Baker, and can be seen at their St. Pancras Station Outlet.


Tractor Saddles


We now have our own design Tractor Saddles in stock and available. They are deliberately made non-model specific so as not to clash. I made the original to replace the rusted through Steel seat on on my Ferguson T20.

The seat can be suppiled in Cast Iron, Aluminium, Brass or Bronze. Price on application due to market volatility.


'Little Warmer' Cast Iron Stove Kits


We also have our own design of Cast Iron Stove now available as a Casting set.

The Stove is supplied as a DIY finish kit. The Castings are very thick and will last a lifetime.

The Stove wil burn any solid fuel.



Curly Spoke Narrow Gauge Wheels


These are our Cast Iron Curly Spoke Wheels


The Castings have been specially designed to have plenty of 'meat' on them.

Both the diameter and profile width are generous. The wheels were designed to be finished anywhere between 5" and 6" overall OD, depending on choice.

The thickness of the casting allows for the heaviest Narrow Gauge profile, although it can be reduced as much as you wish. The wheel standards of the 7.25" Society and any other are easily achiveable with our castings.
