Rivet Embossing Tool

Postby Richard08 » Sun Jun 06, 2021 2:26 pm

Hi, I hope this is the right place. Does anyone know if the Meatalsmith rivet embossing tool, specifically 7mm, or something like is available anywhere? The Midland Railway Center web site link to their shop doesn't work, and Metalsmith's e-mail is full (not accepting new messages). Got a Queen Mary brake van kit to build and there's a lot of rivets!
Cheers!

Unfortunately saw this reported a year ago, no communication possible with Midland Railway Centre.

Thanks for that, it all seems a bit weird ;-) I'll keep searching industrial tool places, I'm sure small presses like this were all over the place back in the day (even if a bit of adaption is needed).

Hi, just an update. Though the e-mail apparently bounced, it did in fact get read and replied too. Everyone has been very helpful and the tool is now on it's merry way :-) It's really nice that Metalsmith and MRC have gone the extra mile, well done.

That's welcome news. Plenty of specialist kits and model making gear from these two outfits.
