Castings and other parts
Harrye Frowen advised that wheel castings for a 7.25″ ‘Lion’ were available through him.
“After searching the web site I failed to find any information on finding out where we can obtain wheel castings for 7.25 gauge Lion. As I now have the wheel patterns for the 7.25 gauge lion and have a foundry prepared to cast for us , you may wish to add this information to your site.”
I understand the following items are available.
Front boiler saddle.
rear boiler brackets.
Rocking shafts(lost wax castings).
Rocking shafts(sand box castings).
Please visit his website for details.
Castings for a 5″ ‘TF’ & 31/2″ ‘TF’ are available.
