Hi biggles, the part you sent the link for is the wrong one I'm afraid, the correct one
Is the 2503 but thank you for taking the time to help much appreciated.

A little work, but I think you could build that up using 1mm styrene.
Two side pieces, and a pre bent top/back plate, and a bit of brass for the hardware.

if you make a plug, slightly thicker in wall thickness than the existing one John, and then make a rubber split mould and cast in none shatter polyurethane resin (cfs resins  sell it in 1kilo packs) it shrinks ever so slightly when curing and you will get areplacement bucket to the same size as what you need..


by the way, did you get my message about the Watson.........presume it was yourself that sent me one about a plan.

Know anybody who's into 3D printing ? there's a lot of jet drive stuff in camcad floating about on the internet , the Graupner gear was fragile at best , someone must have had one drawn up . . . .
