Spring Steel for Model Engineers and Hobbyists

Suppliers of spring steel to model engineers and hobbyists.

Whether you’re restoring a steam engine or building a model from scratch – spring steel is used in all kinds of restoration projects, for model engineering, or for developing prototypes for a new invention!

Small quantities of steel - express delivery

 We supply small quantities of spring steel to model engineers, hobbyists and restorers of cars, trains, models and all kinds of machinery.

If you’re a hobbyist, model engineer or occasional steel buyer, getting hold of the material you need from a large stockholder or mill can be difficult – there are often high minimum order quantities which are too high for your needs.

That’s where BSS come in  – we’re perfect partners for model engineers and hobbyists as we ship as little as just one sheet of steel, with a fast turnaround and expert advice just a phone call away.

Our next day delivery service means there’s no need to keep large quantities of steel in storage – just buy it when you need it and free up some cash.
