Wagon Springs and Axleboxes

  • All types are £4 for a set of 4 3D printed resin axleboxes and springs

The recent aquisition of an SLA 3D printer has enabled me to expand on the range of cast wagon springs and axleboxes already available. These are high quality resin prints and the spring/axlebox are printed as one part as with the castings. The axleboxes come slotted to suit my sprung underframes. I do not keep large stocks of these so please allow two weeks for them to be printed. More to come…
