Title: Hasp and Staple
Post by: Jon Nazareth on December 03, 2017, 06:29:40 PM
Good evening all

Does anyone know of a supplier of a decently scaled hasp and staple?  I need a pair.

Could you give a little more detail Jon?  I assume for a wagon?

Yes, they are for my brake van.  I have a couple that I bought from Model Timbers but, they are too long/big in general and therefore, I was wondering if there is anything else out there.

These are the only ones I have Jon, plus the unequal LSWR hook.

Nice fittings but what I want is the lock plate (hasp), for want of a better word, that would secure the two doors on my brake van.  One would attach a padlock through the staple to make it more secure.  Did you supply something like this for your LBSCR van?  Can't find my etches at the moment.

Model Timbers calls the set that he markets a, Door Catch!

Ah, sorry, I think you did use the right names the first time, but staple has many meanings!

No, I have nothing like that and those on van kits are cast in.  I suspect it might be a bit small, even for dolls house suppliers.

Jon,

This is a photo I have just taken of the pattern used to produce the LBSC van which Mike sells.

Is the hasp/staple the same shape as the one you require?

Yes, that's the one,  I didn't realise that it was cast in.

Jon,

If you can wait a week or two, I will see if I can produce as a "standalone" casting....it's far too cold in the garage at moment to do casting.

That's very kind of you and yes, very cold outside and the wind doesn't make it any better.  My hand skills aren't that good but, I'm going to have a go at filing one up and I'll let you know how I get on with that before taking you up on your offer.

This is my effort for my LBSCR brake van.

Wasn't sure if that would work so, here's another.  As you can see, it has no roof......yet.
