Suppliers worth knowing

Post  Steam Traction World on Mon 20 Jul 2009, 12:55 pm

Hi All,

Some one had to start it off..............so i'll do it.

Who's been of use to you while building your engines. Whether that's paint suppliers, tooling suppliers or just anything miscellaneous that's helped. Tell us about them good or bad and hopefully it will help point everyone else in the right direction.

I'll start of with: www.steamfittings.co.uk

Great company, excellent to deal with, superb prices. Fantastic range of fittings from Globe Valves to Lubricators, materials to fasteners.

I am biased though as i own it! Seriously though............Who have you found that's been of use.

Nice oilers, but don't use them on the crank shaft: they will not work well and will fly off into the wild blue yonder.
