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.

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).

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 :-)
