I am after some 20 mm. brass stanchions for my Armidale.
None of the above sites seem to have suitable ones.
Does anyone know:-
1) Where I can purchase them and
2) If Peter Lane has an email address.   I have written to him but have had no reply after 3 weeks.
Please PM me if you know.

Brian - if you mean James Lane - no he does not have a website - he is very much a one man band who makes
excellent fittings in brass. I take it you have his telephone number, I think that is how most people contact him
but with you being so far away that may be quite costly.

Whoops!
Yes I did mean James.   My apologies to him if he reads this.
I was hoping for an email address by PM.   I know he does not have a web site.

He only seems to have 'Ball' type on the website and I need flat, about 0.5 mm. thick, but I will ask him.

Thanks All for your suggestions but there does not appear to be any that are even near the correct shape and size.
I have ordered etched brass ones from Kim and am waiting on the art work for approval so if anyone else needs 20 mm. high for an Armidale. He is the person to contact.

Hi Brian,

I received your cheque this afternoon ...not to worry the ball begins to roll... the problem i have is that my Brass supplier is closed until 5th Jan 2012...  Artwork on it's way.

Thank you Kim
Looking forward to the art work.  O0
I am still some way from needing the staunchions but Sean might be closer.
I am having a delightful time with more details.   Turning up winches etc. on the electric drill.
Why did I sell my lathe?  <:(
HAPPY CHRISTMAS  %% %% %%

When I need something like those & none are available I make it from brass sheet, yes it is hard work but at least I have the part. The etched ones you got are very well done. Mick B.
