New from MMB
« on: March 21, 2010, 08:44:10 »
We have just started to produce our own prop shafts featuring stainless steel outer tube 6mm diameter and stainless steel 4mm shaft threaded one end or both ends. Bearings are made from hard wearing PTFE and are virtually maintainence free and come with stainless steel lock nuts and washers..
Lengths kept in stock range from 5" to 10" but other lengths can be made to order.
See website http://marksmodelbits.com/ for prices or call 01633 431010 for mor info.

As a side note would there be any interest in a range of M2 propshafts with a 4mm outer tube?

Mark.

Hi guys, we have started producing resin cast fittings, the range is constantly being added to and we will be making fittings in the most popular scales.
They are supplied unfinished but only require a light clean up and some will need some construction.
