Just had a quick look around, not found any on "Eileens", but Amazon and Ebay list the 8" (20.5cm?) one at anywhere between around £60 and £80 including postage. I'd say that "Size does matter"(!!!), as the larger version is probably better for longer lengths of material which can be folded in one go, but it is a bit expensive. Can't remember what I paid for mine, but as I recall, it was under £20, so definitely a bargain when I got mine, and it didn't look as if it had ever been used, although it wasn't wrapped or boxed.......I can live with that!:thumbsup:

Keith.

I jumped in and bought a 5.5 inch version. :facepalm: which is considerably shorter but it will still work. Just means making the folds in increments.

Cheers

Toto

Hi Toto,
I have the 5.5" version and it does most of what I need anything longer and I use either Metalsmith or GW models versions which I have in 12" and 20" respectively.

Keith M wrote: I was lucky Paul, in picking mine up on Ebay from an 'antiques/collectables' shop who mis-described it. I realised what they were trying to describe, jumped in quickly ("He who hesitates is lost!) and got it much cheaper than the actual current cost. There are a number of different size versions of this tool, and I believe my version is the largest, with a number of different sized 'fingers' which are useful with narrow material. Do you by any chance mean "Eileens Emporium" when you refer to "Elaines"??? I believe they do sell this tool, not sure about price, and I have seen them on sale at some trader stalls at some of the larger shows. Definitely worth the money if you do any metal kit building, as I wouldn't be without mine now.
Keith.
Yes I do Keith...:facepalm: I meant Eileens Emporium sorry, I am now fast approaching a time when I can legitimately say without people laughing at me "put it down to age and my memory isn't what it was" :mutley2::mutley2::mutley2:. But no it isn't that bad... I just got confused:hammer:.
I made two sets of folding bars some while back out of stainless which was incredibly hard to drill through, they work alright and I've had good service from them but they can be a bit tricky to use. Yes I have a brass loco kit coming soon and am going to get a 4F kit when Jim comes up to the York show in March. So far in brass kit making I've been confined to an F5 and some wagons along with scratching a sub frame for the Hymek build.cheers for now Paul

The Y7 arrived today. Had a look through the box and could not find the boiler ....... Aw aw ........ You know what that means ..... It's a roll your own. ...... Lucky I used to smoke roll ups .... That will stand me in good stead. :avatar:

Pictures later.


Cheers


Toto

Hi Toto,
I am sure that you won't, but if you get really stuck, send it down and I will roll it for you.
