littlesamson.co.uk Run by Edward George author of ‘Scale Model Traction Engine Design and Construction’ of which I have a copy and it is a prized possession the site offers for sale drawings and casting for large size steam traction engine models.

Model Engineering Tools Suppliers

Tracy Tools Suggested by Ian:
“You probably know of Tracy Tools already, but they are a great company, based in Devon, UK. I always use them for taps and dies, particularly BSC thread tools which are hard to find anywhere else. But they do all sorts of other tools.
They have strong connections with the model engineering scene and provide excellent service with prompt communication. I need to order a BSW helicoil kit from them soon.”
