Can anybody aim me in the direction of a supplier of HO 33" 9.6mm diameter 16.5mm gauge spoked wheels, preferably .088" tread?

I can find plenty of disc wheels but spokes seem to be a problem.

Hi Doug  :wave:



If you can battle your way through the 'Alan Gibson' catalogue ...  :Crazy:

... a wheel hasn't been invented yet (I think) that they don't make !  L:

Provided you haven't pulled all your hair out, going through them all.  :f:


I would have a look in it for you Doug ...  :old dude:

... But I could end up throwing myself under a train !  :P



I bet they got what you want ! 



:cool:



Si.



These 9mm 10.5mm & 12mm  :pimp:  funky curly-spokes were from 'Alan Gibson' ... RAILTRUCK HEAVEN !  :old dude:

Thanks Si but it's the straight spoke wheels I'm after.

Think I may have found them in Australia!

You might give the "Thomas and Friends" cars a try, they have straight-spoked wheels.

A supplier closer to home, Bachmann Europe carries straight spoke wheel sets, no indication of size though.

G.day mate  :wave:



Erm ... well Doug ...  L:

...the 'Alan Gibson' curly-spoked wheels, are of course the EXCEPTION, rather than 'the norm'.  :)



'Alan Gibson' have MORE  :shocked:  WHEELS than you & I have had hot-dinners !  ;)



They will almost surely have something to match what you are after.  :thumb:



If you haven't checked 'em out before, download the catalogue & have a look-see ...  :!:

... wheeely worth doing.  :P



You do know BTW that the water goes down the plug-hole backwards in Australia ! ?  ???

And the weather goes round the wrong way as well.
Could affect wheel rotation.  :brill:



:moose:



Si.

Thanks Ken but I've looked at the Bachmann range (my usual first port of call for all things for scratch building) including the several spare trucks in my bits box,
and they're mostly 10.5mm and upwards or 8.5mm and lower, the ones I'm after seemingly not to fit their models.

Si, looking at their catalogue, Gibson's wheels, although numerous, don't go below 10.5mm so again, not what I'm after.

As I said earlier though, I've found a supplier in Oz and am just waiting for him to restock.
