Nathan 1921 Starter Valves in 1.6"
The starter valves are well underway! They are currently all spoken for, but another batch will come shortly alongside the Nathan 1918A non-lifting injectors.
There are still a lot of parts to make and some testing to do, but please enjoy these photographs of the completed valves! They were most commonly used with flanged pipe connections, but a limit number with spanner nuts will be offered.
Let me know if you are interested in a starter valve, and I will start a list for the next batch of valves.

Small Scale Injectors
The Small Scale Injectors are getting very close to completion. There have been a number of delays since my original date, but they will undoubtedly be completed this month. The final count for this first batch is 210 injectors, many of which are not yet spoken for. Spare parts will be available for sale as well.
Standard Injectors will be back in stock shortly after the Small Scale Injectors are completed. Target delivery date is end of March.

The starter valves will resume production after Standard Injectors are back in stock, and will be available in April.
Injectors, valves, and fittings - August, 17 2017
Fittings are IN STOCK! Click here to view and order.
Unfortunately, porosity in the body castings has affected the entire second batch of injectors, and so delivery is delayed. New bodies are underway and injectors will be available before the end of August.
The new bodies incorporate the boiler delivery into the body which eliminates the elbow from the design. This will make in-service maintenance much easier. A small run of injectors with the elbow will still be offered since the adjustable delivery angle can be essential in certain circumstances.

Castings are here, and they look great! Machining on these will begin once injectors are finished. Many of the parts to be made from bar stock are already finished. Click the image below for more information!
Nathan Monitor in 2.5" Scale - May 14, 2017
Components for these highly detailed injectors will be cast very soon. Still anticipating delivery of these injectors before the end of the year.
Reducing Elbow Fittings
I have decided to add reducing elbows to my line of fittings. These will be supplied in 5/16" to 1/4", and 1/4" to 3/16"
