Tim,
Thanks for your help with this. I will have a few sets done shortly including one for mine! I'm excited to get this project (idlers) finished. Here are some recent photos after receiving the machined parts. The resin insert just drops right in.

Hi Tim: I know this is late in the game here for this thread, but wondering if you still have a pair of those early "G" idlers for sale? Thanks.---Dave

It might be worth sending Tim a PM as that will send him an email to let him know there is a message waiting. He hasn't logged into this board since Sep 2015 but he was on the Sixth Army Group board back in May.

Hi Dave,

I designed the wheels/parts and made one pair for my Panther along with the mold for the inner wheel insert. I gave my design files and parts to Bob Morey. He had produced and sold some in the past but I'm not sure if he is still offering them as they are time/labor intensive.

Hope that helps
Kind regards
Tim

It is possible that these could be available as part of the Armortek Panther A kit.
I am hoping that this is the case as id love a set of the early idlers for my Panther.

I am lucky to have a brand new set sitting here. I may going to sell after I made the final decission to build early or very late with Schmalturm. If so i will also have the modifierd early "Walzenblende" (gun mantlet) and early exhaust as well.
May be you can push me with good offers.

Hi. Thanks to both "Tims" above. Thanks Martin, but I think I'll pass; you won't have to worry about me "pushing you" too hard.
