Mulitple purchases. Two birds with one stone?
« on: January 10, 2017, 02:00:28 pm »
I would like to get; a/ Minitrix Britannia traction tyres, b/ Daywat lube oil.
If only I could find one outlet for both products, I'd happily pay to get them both delivered first class in one parcel.
Please can anyone let me know if/where this is possible?
How ironic that I choose N gauge after I start using reading glasses.

I'd suggest Peter's Spares - http://www.petersspares.com/?searchStr=minitrix

Might be best to ring before ordering and perhaps accept an alternative oil if they don't have that one.

I just spoke to Martin at Peter's Spares. What a cracking good bloke. They have developed their own lube for doing repairs which I will buy, and he's convinced me to buy Bullfrog Snot. Thinking about it, I have a Lima N 31, and a few 00 locos that also require tyres. Looking that the prices of individual tyre packs, and given that a jar of BfS will do approx 1000 wheels, it's a no-brainer.

I've always imagined it must be pretty labour intensive to a) find a bullfrog with a cold, and b) hang around long enough until it sneezes.

Daywat is now no longer made as Daywat, and instead is marketed by Lytchett Manor models:

This is actually on the Bullfrog Snot website home page.

I wouldn't go near Bullfrog snot if you paid me - it cannot be good for the underlying wheel surface if you want to get it off again, it removes wheels that could be picking up power from their current conducting role, and I can't see how it'd be possible to get a smooth completely identical thickness layer all round a wheel - this introducing lumpier running and wobbly running - precisely what we want to avoid.

Cheers,
Alan

Just curious - what's the Daywat that Knightwing sell?

It's the right stuff - may well just be the remaining stocks though, as Lytchett Manor said they were the sole producers of it now.

Either'll do the job.

Hmmmm...it's rare to hear such meek and mild ramblings from across the pond these days. But at least this one is done in jest.
