Armortek Factory Seconds

Post by Armortek » Sun Jul 26, 2020 1:00 pm

As part of our manufacturing and prototyping process, we occasionally manufacture parts that are not suitable for inclusion in our kits - either because they are not correct on tolerance or the design has needed to be changed.

Simon Manning has agreed to take these "Factory Seconds" and will be offering them for sale directly and via this forum.

What are Factory Seconds ?
Factory Seconds are parts that have not met our quality standards. This includes parts that may be:
- Prototype
- Have "extra" features - like too many holes or a tap broke in a hole
- Be incorrect on tolerance - like a bearing recess being too deep, too much material removed or angles bent incorrectly

What sort of parts may be available ?
Availability will change on a constant basis, but can include just about everything from turret sides to hulls parts to running gear parts, etc. We do not set out to make factory seconds, so we cannot predict what will be available at any point in time.
Best to contact Simon to see what he has available at any given time.

What is available/ how to I buy Factory Seconds ?
Contact Simon - either via this thread, private message or email (simon_manning@hotmail.co.uk).

PLEASE NOTE - Any transaction is between the customer and Simon - Armortek have no involvement and offer no warranty nor liability over these parts.

Don't happen by any chance have a chieftain hull floor and a hull rear plate knocking about? Thought about doing the v shape correction on the hull but chickened out in case I messed up the original parts.😱

Not a bad idea at all especially if each part would have a description of why it is classed as a "second".

Part of the fun of the dumpster diving at the Dunkeswell Open Days was trying to work out which kit the part came from, what was wrong with it and whether it could be made functional.

So assuming that there are no Factory Seconds 88 kits available... you know, with a creased box, some bad instruction printing or a bit of surface rust???

Just asking.

Cheers,

It will take time to sort out a rhythm of selling the "seconds" and sorting through to whats available, and worth going on with but i can start here,
1 Pair of King/ jadgtiger sprocket's, + 2 rings, both sprocket's are correct except for repositioning of inner ring holes, use the sprocket ring as a template, an easy fix, one of the sprocket rings is slightly out of shape. all usable with some attention. £80 the pair + postage at cost to destination.
