Steam Dome Covers

Captain Hook an enlarged and improved Tinkerbell Is having a locomotive Boiler fitted.The new Boilers steam dome is consequently Larger than the original. We would appreciate any help that will enable us to find a supplier or skilled individual craftsman who could make us another one to fit our new boiler Steam dome. Any help and guidance would be appreciated. Our initial enquiries from Metal spinners in the Leeds area have drawn a blank. Seems none of them have got the correct skills these days but there must be workers in aluminium who can help Many thanks.

My apologies Stephen for my late reply. I could not get the 71/4 website to accept me?? Your information about the Moors Valley Fibre Domes was known to us as we are regular attenders at their events.We are trying to keep our dome as slim as possible but we may well have to use one of theirs. I am in contact with other metal spinners but as yet none have confirmed they can do an ally one to our design and spec. I live in hopes..Also looking for someone who can Water jet cut our fire bars. Yes , we are very sure of what we want !!!!???? Thank you so much for your reply,Happy Christmas to you Brian

I have tried emailing Moors Valley twice, once from my aol account, and once from my gmail account. I have not received a reply to either. Do they block overseas emails?
