Tips and answers to frequently asked questions
1. Question
I have an old PAW engine that has not been used for a long time. It is 'gummed' up, how do I free it up?
1. Answer
Soak the engine overnight in diesel fuel mix, this will soften the hardened castor oil inside it.
2. Question
Can I visit the factory / do you have a factory shop?
2. Answer
Model airplane enthusiasts and potential customers for our engineering services are very welcome to visit our factory in Macclesfield. There is no 'shop' as such.
Please telephone first to let us know you are coming (+44 (0)1625 423891).

Can you explain your prices and method of payment?
