Lightweight airborne 10 cwt trailer locker catch

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm still in the process of gathering parts to restore my 10cwt stores trailer and I need some more locker door catches, I recently acquired 3 on eBay but I need a few more.

 

does anyone have any stashed away or know a person / location where there may be some?

 

regards

I just need 5 more I think? I'm thinking of getting them made up on a 3D printer and then casting them out of pewter as a trial and then brass later?

 

thanks for listing them

Hi Dave

Don't use pewter they will break easily, I got mine cast for my binned stores trailer by White Eagle Foundries in Hailsham Sussex using an original as a pattern and cast in gun metal. Entirely successful but needed a lot of fettleing.

Is that £40 each? if so that's brill , if £40 for the lot, FANTASTIC!!!

Post A photo of your trailer so I can see what model it is, they seem to run to 3 numbers and 2 marks each but info is scarce.

Hi Dave

 

I have the remains of two stores trailers, had anticipated making one good one out of the two. Down the line on the restoration front, please post some images of yours?

 

regards

I haven't done much to the trailer since last time I posted, work and family commitments took priority!

i have some spare time this week and I'm hoping to sort the draw bar out this week and get a rolling chassis.

hey Richard do you have any spare bodywork for me to copy ??
