Epping Classic Stove Spares


Featured Posts

So that leaves nobody producing proper back cabin stoves then. Brinklow produced a batch a few years ago, and said there would be more to follow, but I haven't heard of any progress.

 

I guess the market is too small to be worth setting up production.

Not a small market if you consider the shepherd's huts that are used for glamping in

But shepherds huts and the like have a wider choice of stove. They are not constrained to a maximum of about 24 inches wide, they don't necessarily need an oven, and if they do have one it can be on either side. The requirements for a proper back cabin stove are much more specific.

It is less to do with the size of the market and more likely the dearth of jobbing foundries who can produce a short run batch of parts and fettle them. 

 

Small foundries have been hammered by Environmental and H&S legislation, followed by a steep rise in the cost of energy.  This combines with a general lack of a small batch engineering demand as that has either died, or been sent to India and China, to mean that the foundries have not thought it worth staying open.

 

If you can find a foundry, the patterns exist  so getting some cast should not then he difficult.  You could try Bridport Foundry, once you have persuaded someone to let you borrow the patterns.  For something  simple to mould they may be able to use an original (temporarily repaired if needed) as a pattern.

 

Alternatively look for a laser scanner service to scan an original to give you a 3D model.  You can then get a printing service to 3D print a pattern from the model.

Yes Simon showed me the prototype and I was quite inclined to buy one but they were not in production at the time.  

 

I guess the price Simon mentioned of £1300 rather dun for it, back in 2016 or thereabouts, which is a shame as it struck me as quite reasonable given a high volume production Squirrel was £800-ish back then.
