I’m looking for modern brake wheels and the device that the brake wheels ( the ratcheting mechanism ) mount to for 3 new freight cars i’m scratch building . I tried Charlie Roe but they don’t seem interested in looking through their parts inventory for them . Anyone here have some they are willing to sell ? 3D printed ones would be good too . Thanks !
Would any of Bachmann’s be acceptable?
This bulkhead flat has the pieces in it, if someone can print some for you.
Burl Rice has some made out of brass.
I think you are asking at the wrong time (ECLSTS 2022) is happening tomorrow.
NO…ABCDEFG to make the 20 character limit !
i like these alot.
Thanks Cliff , I checked the Bachman page out but I didn’t see one that I liked . Thanks for replying .
These look real nice , definately on the list. I didn’t see the other part that the wheel connects to.
Do you sell the parts I am seeking ?
I’m pretty sure Burl has the housing as well. I know because I bought it off Shapeways years and made some resin castings of them.
Here you go
Thanks Craig , i’m going to check Burl’s site out.
If you can’t find what you want; you can contact GLX Scale models.
He does have Aristo’s brake wheels. www.glzscalemodels.com
Or, if you have a picture of the brake parts you require, or would like; send him a picture of the parts, and the scale you are working in, and he will produce them for you.
Gilbert is a dependable guy, and has helped out many people.
Thanks Fred for the info .
Just for some clarification if you don’t not already know, Manimal on Thingiverse that people have linked to in your post is Dan Hilchrist a member here as well. He is a very talented designer and is generous with his design files. I already have his brake files for his tank cars and they look pretty darn good. I see the ones on his bulkhead flat car are very similar. If those work for you I would be glad to print you some and send them to you. The only hitch in the program is that both of my printers are down at the moment. I am hoping that my main machine will be up and running by next week when I get my new parts and can get them installed.
Take a look at those links of his and then send me a PM if that is something you would like printed and we will see what we can do.
Since when did Burl start offering brass detail parts? How did I not know this?
Burl had a bunch of castings made a few years back and I think he’s just slowly selling them off. I bought a few brass parts for my Snow Dozer years ago from Burl, but I’d definitely buy more for more projects once I get back into that stage of modeling.
I just quickly drew this up in 1:29. I am having a test print done as we speak. If this works and you are interested I’d be glad to print you a few for a small fee.
It is in two pieces the wheel and the ratchet.
Thanks everyone , Devon I got ahold of Charlie Roe and ordered the pieces however I can always use some in the future so I an interested in yours too . Do you want my e-mail address ?
