Default Expressions of interest, universal carrier track

Ok folks, looking for expressions of interest. I have been working on replacement track as a project for the last 12 months, I now have high quality samples which are due to be fitted to a carrier, the links will undergo vigorous testing to check on wear and tear before I go live with sales.

The product I can offer is made to the same metallurgical properties as the originals, however, they will be cast and finished to ISO standards, likewise with the manufacture of the pins.

At present the price is 8000 GBP for a full set of track which consists of 336 links, complete with correct pins with forged ends and the removable link pins with cotter pins. This price is based on small batch numbers ordered from the foundry.

Interested parties would need to submit a 50% deposit to secure their orders and prevent time wasting.

Please feel free to share with interested parties and contact me via email.

Track is becoming harder and harder to find. The last "used but nearly new" set I saw sold for 5K and that was four years ago......The war dated track you have on your machines need to be preserved before they are totally worn out, why not run on modern track which looks correct and saves the wartime stuff for static display / provenance ?

let me know what you think !

Kind regards

Richie

Had lots of interest elsewhere, if I can get five more takers I can get the price down to 7000 per set.

Hi everyone, just a quick update regarding the track project. COVID 19 had put a stop to the project briefly, but it is now back up and running, I have signed off on a small production run now, it’s slow going as I am doing this alone..granted I have a close personal friend (local) helping me out with his factory / press / fabrication bays etc etc.

As soon as I get a set assembled I can post up images and answer any queries ! It has been a long process to get to where I am now.

Once I have this step sorted I can move onto bigger batches for folk who want new track on their carriers, alternate, folk who want to save war time track before it becomes worn out.


It’s been a bit of a rollercoaster but I am getting there so bear with me folks

Cheers

Richie
