Meccano chain

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 Peter

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).

Mr. Mike Rhoades, 137, Fairfield Avenue, Kirk Ella, Hull, HU10 7UW, England.

Tel: 01482 650463 Fax: 01482 658327

so the Canada to UK number is...

Not guaranteed to be current details but worth a try.

Assuming that his number hasn't changed:-

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