Hello to those members I was getting castings for, sorry for delay, circumstance beyond our control, Covid & then foundry having to move 25 miles to new site which as you can imagine not an easy task!
Appreciate it was about a year ago I accepted some of the parts for copying, but all now here, in fact if I painted them black it could easily be one of Richard Jones's 'Spot the part competitions'!!
For anyone considering having a part cast, its not cheap, those in the picture range from £15+vat to £100+vat, most being in the £20-£40 bracket.
Note for thinner parts best to opt for SG Iron rather than Grey Cast Iron which tends to break more easily.
Interestingly the foundry are still casting rollers for Ransomes for their current production mowers, spotted a pallet of them whilst there.
Will be in touch.
