is there some kind of worldwide shortage of OS No8 plugs. I've had some on order with a model shop for over 6 weeks. Not particularly bothered re the OS No8 but its holding up the whole order.
Apparently Ripmax have run out of No8 plugs!

I've just had a root through my old IC field box & found 4 OS No8 plugs & 2 OS 'F' plugs all new in packets, albeit slightly grubby packaging as I've not flown glow for a few years now. £4 each + 50p p&p for any quantity. PM me if interested.

I have my old field box somewhere in my garage. One of the drawers was full of new plugs, OS 8's, Enya 3's and OS f's. Like John, I've not flown i.c. for some time now.........
Must get round to sorting it someday.
I'd also heard certain glowplugs were becoming harder to source. A couple of weeks back I looked to see what engines were still available. I was shocked how much the OS range has shrunk.
Airtek Hobbies were/are selling OS 8 plugs for £3.50 or thereabouts. Is it a case of when they're gone, they're gone I wonder?

Try Model Technics F5 as an alternative, just as good, for OS #8. An F6 is a bit warmer, more like Enya #3.

thanks for replies ... got plenty plugs. Was just wondering as it's holding up the order I have with them.
Just that they are saying tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow. Think I'll just cancel that part of order.

Ripmax might have run out of 8s as they will need money to by more.
