|Thread: Camden Miniature Steam Services|
Mark - same thing happened to me. Ordered two books. One came straight away, the other took about six weeks. The variable lead times are all down to the current Covid restrictions. The book that took six weeks was due to Camden running out of stock and the publisher having reduced staffing levels to fulfill orders. Camden are having the same issue with staff numbers in the office.
In my case I sent an email inquiry to Camden. I got a timely response explaining the above.
Camden are still trading and have usually been pretty prompt with their orders in the many years I have been buying from them.
The current restrictions are causing bottle necks in the supply chain especially with the smaller publishers.

|Thread: tool misuse/abuse|
In a lecture by Richard Dawkins about Frederick William Sanderson, the headmaster of Oundle school (famous for introducing engineering into the school curriculum) he relates how Sanderson saw a boy using a surface plate as an anvil. Rather than punish him, the boy was sent to the library to produce an essay on the correct use of both pieces of equipment.
|Thread: SS BA screws|
Ba-bolts do sell a limited range of SS bolts. They are hidden away at the bottom of the Steel screws lists.
They sell very small quantities.
