Title: Footboards 600EW measurements
Post by: BlueSilver on 28 Nov 2011 at 20:23
Hello All,

My 600 EW is missing the footboards and now I will try to reproduce a pair out of a solid peace of aluminium. I only have photographs of the footboards but no measurements. I have made a drawing, and will ask if anyone can give me the measurements?
The measures are as follow, A = B = and so on. Thank you in advance!

Kind Regards, Leo

Hi Leo,

         I produced patterns for these back in the 1980`s from which my Father had castings made.
         
         He still has a few sets available at 95 per set if this is of interest to you. Postage to the Netherlands would be another 20.

        I have attached a photo showing the castings along with footboards for the EW 350 and 2 & 3/4 models which, if anyone is interested, are available
        for the same price.

       Best regards
       Tony

Hi Leo
Did you make these yourself or did you commission someone to make them for you? They are fabulous! I'm sure there are others who would be only to pleased to be able to get footboards of this quality.
Cheers, Graeme
