I am having a devil of a time trying to find anything ba or me here in the states. Im fairly new to the world of model engineering so I’m still figuring out where to source all the fiddly bits that are required. I’m currently machining out a stuart double 10. Is anyone aware of any dealers here in the states I can find “ba“ bolts and nuts and “me“ fittings? As of now it appears as though I will be ordering everything from across the pond and paying out of the nose for shipping. Any advise you experienced gentlemen and ladies can send my way will be greatly appreciated.

I came home form Hairy Forebears (Hare & Forbes, our local machinery shop) with 250kg of semi precision metal. I imagine the thing and I may have a initial problems communicating as it speaks Mandarin with a Deutsche accent. But it seems happy to be sitting in my workshop (aka glorified garage) for the moment. I'l post a pic and thoughts about it when I have it assembled and on a bench. This household blames you for the sudden need to create swarf. ~ smiles ~ Actually the need is not all that sudden. You've just poked me along. so forum members, I'f you've just bought a machine? Why not use this thread to post a pic of your new setup (with initial costs to get going etc), as a guide to folk who may want to get grease under their fingers
