S7 wheels from Peartree Engineering

SCALE 7 WHEELS
 
I have during the past couple of years had cause to purchase several sets of S7 wheels made by Peartree Engineering and I have been impressed with both the quality and value for money. The current range covers a number of variations of both wagon and carriage steel wheels fitted on steel axles, complete with insulation and chemical blackening
 
.At the January Bristol 'O' Gauge Show I asked proprietor Malcolm Fisher if he planned to produce some S7 diesel wheels and axles, because I currently have a Heljan diesel that I want to convert to S7. I could of course just set the existing wheels up in my lathe and turn them to S7 standards, however, I would like to retain the standard wheel sets just in case I want to re-convert this, or any other converted diesel locomotive in the future, especially when it might provide flexibility for any possible future re-sale.
 
Malcolm is prepared to turn up a small batch of S7 plain disc diesel locomotive wheel ses at a cost of circa £6 - £7 per wheel set, with axles of 3/16th diameter and wheel profiles to S7 standards, provided that he can get a minimum order run of about 36 axle sets of a given diameter. I would thus ask that if anyone reading this is interested, that they please e mail Malcolm at Turn on Javascript! with an indication of their interest and likely order requirements and also if possible copy e mail me (Turn on Javascript!), so that I can then monitor the likely demand and report back accordingly. If this level of interest can be generated then Malcolm has indicated that he would then commit to production
