I can see the stylistic similarity to the 'strong pattern' Wrinch ones I have - Almost as if an iron founder had looked at the wrought items and copied them in CI.

Yes, they are ! They came from America with a US engine I bought and sort of became detached from it and put away for another use, which is why I'd forgotten I had them until they were rediscovered during Sundays tidy up.

Sorry they are not big enough for your Lorenz, Darren.

Funny you should say that I seem to remember Pap's Stover CT1 having similar wheels attached, they were both the same size though.

I should really start looking for a set of wheels for me Scott.... thinking solid wheels but nore sure if I want new ones of not from Bearing Boys, Edit: oh and for the Villier, dont really want to refit the red rubber clad things.

Cheers, Steve

Thanks for info, bud. From other pics I've seen it's hard to think the difference is only 3". Trick of the camera I guess.

What were the wheels off, Phillip?

They came off a Waterloo Boy but I doubt they were original to it. Engine long gone......

Certainly too high a quality for such a cheap engine. They look quite heavy too. I suspect they have no connection to engines at all. Nice though. If only I had a really little Lorenz!!

Thanks, not sure if its a compliment

Needs a bit of a tidy up, just trying to squeeze the important parts of a 1927 Fordson F in there!
