Scale Trailers

Post  sonick45 on Sun 02 Jul 2017, 11:41 pm

Hi All....

Just wondering how many builders/owners there are out there wondering if STW will do another run of traction trailers.

I would certainly be very interested in a couple.

It seems STW are no longer making them at present as the timber became too expensive to source and machine making it a non viable series of kits to make and sell.

It has been voiced that they may make a kit but leave the customer to source and machine the timber bits.

STW would provide the metal parts.

Would this be something others would be prepared to do?

I have access to machines and a skilled technician to finish the timber and for a small fee would be prepared to help others with the timber finishing if this is what is putting others off.

If I know numbers of those who would want a trailer/s I can go back to STW and see if they would put them back into production and provide a price.

Its worth asking I think.


Nick

Well, I absolutely want a trailer, which I hope Steve took on board when I spoke to him, I am happy with metal, and sort the timber out myself, but I do feel, we need to get some firm numbers for STW, to convince them to get this into production.

The best option of course would be for STW to do another batch of trailers and if the price had to go up then so be it but hopefully not by to much

Send me the steel, I'll supply the wood for mine. (You cannot import certain timbers to Australia, that's why my Boiler came in an "Ammo" box.)

Hopefully Dean is watching this thread and can let us know if another batch is possible

Agreed, so Steve or Dean, what are the numbers required to do a trailer run, there have to be a fair number of us, I believe you started another production run of the RL/SHMN, part way through our run, so there should be a good number of us out here.

i'm not sure Dean reads this or not.

When I was last up the factory I had mentioned it to both Steve and Dean again. Neither said no to a production run but wouldn't give a time scale.

As a business I guess it boils down to wether is worth it for them.

There is no point if its going to be too expensive or not an attractive option for customers to source and machine their own wood parts.

I suspect once Dean has priced up the options and has a package to offer we will hear first.

I'm confident it will happen lets just hope its sooner rather than later.

If this kit includes vulcanised tyres all the better.

Not too many days now until Great Dorset, maybe we should go along "mob handed" for some gentle persuasion. I shall be there all week if anybody wants to meet up.
