  • new to scratch building and cant find parma style guides and brushes

    So I got some older brass chassis's from a guy in our club. I am in process of taking them apart and cleaning them up. I was told to replace the guides and brushes but cant seem to find any on professor motor's site. Is there another site in the USA that carries parts for these type chassis ?

    Parma guide flags are still available from Parma/PSE, but the braids for them are not listed on their site. It seems like braid is not available on many websites, I did find some listed on the Koford site.

      I Believe that Parma itself has been out of business for several years, but PCH (Pacific Coast Hobbies) still has some Parma stock.

      Slot Car Corner and Professor Motor carry a lot of the same stock, so if one is out of something you may find it at the other.

        I would describe Parma as being moribund, however if you look at the bottom of the Parma/PSE homepage the date is 2020-2022. It seems to me that Parma is basically selling off its inventory.
        Parma was a major force in 1/24th commercial raceway slots for many years. Today there are few commercial raceways left. When Scale Auto Racing News still existed, there was a list of commercial raceways that was more or less kept up to date. SARN may not be entirely dead either, there is a Facebook page with the latest entry in 2021.

          Parma was bought by Roger Schmitt, the owner of Mid America Raceway, either last fall or early this spring. Some of the former Parma items, but not all, are still being made & sold. The Mid America website is another possible source for the parts you're looking for.

          The Parma/PSE page has a large note at the top indicating they are no longer shipping items because of the Covid pandemic. This page has always been a Shopatron page in the past. Items ordered here came from a Parma dealer, not directly from Parma. My one experience in the past got my items from Crawley in Florida.

            Hello Jeremy,........Many manufacturers make guides virtually identical to the Parma guides, all with 3/16 posts.

            JK, H&R, RedFox, Cahoza, Koford, and Slick 7 are just a few, and for your purposes, any of these will work perfectly well.
            Unless you have a guide post threading tool, I would strongly suggest buying a "pre threaded" guide post, and most of the folks mentioned offer these.

            You will also need a guide nut, braid, and, guide lead clips and guide spacers are very useful. All these parts are inexpensive, and can be found at most decent commercial shops.

            PCH slot parts, (as well as others) offer a wide selection of all the bits you will need.............and for your purposes, any will work well.

            The Koford KOFM648 guide come with a couple of spacers and a guide nut for $ is pre threaded.........I mention this as it comes with a nut and spacers, can pick whatever you like.

            JK offers lead wire with guide clips attached JKU52SC,.........also $ can also buy guide clips/wire separately

            JK has a 10pr. pk of braid JKU10-10, for $11..............for you purposes., all you will need, and well priced.

            The above items are all on the PCH Slot parts site, but are available at most good commercial shops.
