Some companies/ people do offer services to covert the off the shelf kit for you but I dont think theres an off the shelf kit that enables an edrig to be converted.

But, to accurately profile the spindle, how do you accurately measure the inside taper bore of the regulator? The bore isn't tapered. I recommended the lubrication mod some years ago and always use Vaseline. The reason for the problem in the first place is that Butane is an astringent and dries out...

I know I spoke with several of you while Tim and I were in Wales about my Zillertal but I've forgotten most of what I was told...should have had my dictaphone with me!   Anyway.

It all depends upon. - Which engine. - Whether its technically possible - Whether the Customer wants a fixed conversion to say 32mm or to be able to switch back and forth at will. For the Accucraft Shay I do these two levels of conversion. There is a big difference in price due to the amount of wor...

Yes, Paul's engine is very nice. Did you notice that I'd converted his power trucks, so that he can switch back and forth 32mm/45mm gauge? That was quite a big engineering job.
