  • Cast Steel Clevises
  • CNC Turning
  • Small brass valves
  • Spoked steel wheels
  • Suspension parts
  • Custom domed bolts
  • Milling cutter

We use a variety of CNC lathes, including power tooling for complex work, as well milling work on CNC machining centers, including our recent addition of a state of the art Doosan DNM 4500, equipped with the Renishaw Probing system.


Through 10 years plus of experience in production of precision parts for our extensive range of miniature railway products, 17D have developed the know-how and capability to handle a range of general engineering work.cnc machining with coolant

Historically, 17D has, from  day one, produced completed products, from inception and design through to the finished item. We are therefore well placed to understand customers requirements, as opposed to those used to dealing only with making random parts from drawings without the understanding of the finished product.

With a wealth of experience of the railway indsutry generally - from large scale working models up to 1:1 scale - we are especially able to assist with parts for full size railway projects where the general engineer may lack that knowledge and experience.

17D's in-house facilities also include light fabrication work.
