Good evening everybody.
Does someone know where I can find the concave small round to hold the safety tyre on the Foden trucks ?

Many thanks

I think Steve Flowers is your best bet. There is an item "Supertoy spare wheel washer for above steel", which I think is what you want. Would be best to check with them first.

Although Peter Golden opened this thread ten years ago, only four messages have been posted.

There are different ways to restore à Dinky Toys. Of course there is the usual way to srip the model and repaint it but the restoration can also be done electronically.

Here is a picture of a rare and interesting model published in The Journal and one of the restored model.

Yes the camera does lie.

By the way today Monks & Crane Ltd. do not build or use any lifting machines, they produce industrial vending machines.
