Hi
Does anybody know where I can buy or have cast, one or more, 6 spoke cast iron flywheel between 6" to 8"ish diameter and 3/4" to 1" ish wide for a reasonable price? Also a foundry prepared to do one offs/small batches of say 10 to 20 off, Ideally with 20/30 miles of Manchester?

Cheers Paul

Hi, Paul.

If you intend to make posts like the one above, you really should have your location in your profile (and in your sig or beneath your (yet to be) avatar) in order to maximize your chance of relevant replies.

Your reference to "Manchester" doesn't really help. While I'm guessing you're referring to the one in the UK, you should remember that many states in the USA have a Manchester and I suspect there may be a few in Canada and Australia as well.

Hi
Sorry about that, yes I am in Manchester England, home of the Mighty Blues. Do Stuart still sell individual casting, I have only seen kits available from their website.

Cheers Paul

Try Blackgates

http://www.blackgates.co.uk/

There just off J28 M62 that's near to you.

I thought the best team in Manchester played in red. :big: :big: only joking the best team in the North West do play in red but are based at Stoke.

I've used Stuarts CI flywheel on this engine, about £25 and good quality castings, 7" x 3/4

http://www.stuartmodels.com/accessories.cfm/mainaccess_type/5/the_type/Flywheels

At 6" you could look at the 1 1/2 Alchin Traction engine castings (Reeves or Blackgates)

Engineers Emporium also do CI Flywheels

RGS may be able to help with casting

Thanks for that Lads, Stuart models look the best bet price wise and I know their quality is or was superb.
