Default Intro to PKD Scale Engineering

Hi All

PKD Scale Engineering is a small hobby business that I have developed from my Slot Car Days into my RC Hobby.

I mainly set out to make parts for myself and as people have requested I have made them parts also.

I have full CAD software and can draw up almost anything you can think of, if you want something designed and sent to you in DXF format I can do this or I can just make the parts that you require.

I currently have a 2D Router/Mill that can do any flat type of product, like the Grills and Bumpers I have made, I will soon add a 4th axis which will allow me to do 3D milling.

I am also looking into purchasing a CNC lathe so I can do all the round objects like Tanks, air cleaners etc, you get the drift.

Materials that I work with are: Brass, Aluminium, Carbon Fibre, possibly others but these are the main three that I work with.

I do this as a Hobby and I take a bit of time to get the best results I can so I charge accordingly. I simply don't do this to turn a big profit, I have a day job that looks after that.

I will post a few samples of each item that I am able to make and you can also look at my posts to get an idea of the quality. All parts are made from the highest quality material I can get.

PM me if you would like something made or just drawn up, I'm not limited to RC Trucks, I am interested in Scale Engineering so let me know what you are thinking and I'll let you know if I can help

Postage from Aus to US/Canada up to 2KG is $20AUD

Cheers
Paul

Hi Paul,
Okay I'm a Miniature train buff as well and I'm trying to get some grills made out of aluminium.

Is it possible to get your email address and i'll send you some pics of what I need?

Regards
Max

Hi All

Just a notice that I will be shut for about a month so If you are wanting any work done please let me know this week as I'm moving house and I have to pack up the Garage and this will take me a fair bit of time, already have the better half reminding me what a big job its going to be.

Any order that I have taken will be completed and posted out but I wont take any orders after Friday this week.


Rest assured I will have it all up and running again in no time and with a better layout and room for more tools.

Thanks
Paul

Moving?......aaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!

Will you end up with a bigger shop for your model making? That would make it worth it.

The same size but I have managed to get rid of all the crap that belonged to other people so more room and more opportunities for more toys and tools

Hi All

PKD Scale Engineering is able to take orders again, it will be a bit slow to start with but I am able to start making parts again.

Just PM me with your wish list.

I have had to put some of the prices up due to material cost increase but its not by much.
I basically make your Parts at cost, Each part is cnc cut then hand finished and polished. There are a few Parts out there that are the same but I also make one off parts and treat each part as though it was for myself.
This is a hobby not a business, I enjoy seeing my parts on your trucks here on the Forum.
I will update each Topic with the changes.

Cheers
Paul

PKD Scale Engineering is once again shut for a while, not sure how long as I was never happy with the garage set up so I have pulled it all out and am starting again, with new cabinets and benches this time, it will be built to suit the shape better.

I have no orders at the moment and for those that have made an enquiry I will get onto them ASAP.

Sorry for any interruptions this may cause.

Happy building.

PaulNZ
