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)
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.
