Hi all,

I'm looking for anyone who has used the small meccano ladder chain and
sprocket. The question I have is that any newer chain I order for it
from the meccano dealers seems like it doesn't fit right. It slips
over the teeth, bunches up and mis-matches the teeth. On the other
hand I have some old meccano chain that fits a lot better. Just
wondering if anyone has experienced this problem and if so was there a
good supplier of the ladder chain.

I get my Meccano Spares from Mike Rhoades. He specialises in mail order
original Binns Rd Meccano.

Do a web search for Mike Rhoades Meccano for his address/tele/FAX/pricelist

I used to run the factory that made this chain for Meccano and can
tell you that the machine is now either scrapped or in China! it is
over 100 years old, however I think that I may have a lenght of this
chain at the back of a drawer somewhere,
PM me if you are still stuck

Well, I did find Mike Rhoads online, but it does not look like he is
set up for international payments. I couldn't find an email address
and I don't know how to call the phone number (I am in Canada).

Assuming that his number hasn't changed:-

011 44 1482 650463

Note that the area code normally has a leading zero, but this isn't used when
calling from abroad :-)
