Hi Kevin

Corbin padlocks was a padlock made by Corbin. They made them in Canada during the war. On the UC Mk1 3 were needed. They were used to lock the tool box, the spare barrel bin and the crew stowage locker.

Im not sure how many you need but "back off" till others get them. Ive been trying for some months now to get a hold of them. (Only joking of course) Its hard to buy things when emails aren't returned.

For me I'd like to get them since my UC is nearing completion. ( I know, its not done till the exhaust system is installed)

Unless he has sold them all Dirk has large quanities of the padlocks at very reasonable prices.

Unfortunately he is famous in the hobby for not responded to e-mails to his site. I would suggest trying his stall at Beltring where he normally has them for sale.

Thanks for those suggestions but a bit harder to do when the Atlantic Ocean and part of Europe is between me and him. And sure I'd love to go to Beltring but that probably wont happen.

If you search "corbin lock" on ebay, there are always some on there. If you are patient, you can even get a matching set together.

There is a guy coming up on Aussie E bay, who has at least one for sale.

It is in a job lot of locks he is selling, and there is a guy there inquiring about the Reece locks which are included.

He appear to have no interest in the others, perhaps if he bids and you do a deal on the side to buy his conbin, should be cheap.

Lot 120381518209 refers.

Hope this helps.

Col

Jordan, I have some locks for you and for Adame. I don't know the price but will put the locks aside. I am not trying to make excuses for Dirk and you all know he is my buddy but I have sat at his computer and watched the emails come in. Wow! Imagine yourself receiving 20 emails tonight with questions about prices, shipping, stock availability, etc. Then there are the orders for " I think its a British carrier but may be a Canadian MKII but send the part anyway and email me with the shipping first in case its too much and then I don't want it". Now its time for bed and only 10 emails are sorted out. Next night 25 more emails. It goes on and on. I personally would only sell things at the shows. It is incredible the traffic that attends his stall at events. Then there are the Saturdays when people come to his place from all over Europe for pickups or just shopping. While there last year a chap came from Czech to pick up 10 Jeep MB engines. He even left a case of Czech Budweiser. Oh yeah, he sometimes likes to do a little restoration work as well. So hang in there guys and if there is anything I can do to help just ask. I also know he is off to Tunisia for a holiday to keep the BOSS happy so he can continue with all this other foolishness.
Cheers,
Barry

Hi Barry

Fully understand his situation with how many emails he gets. My line of work, the calls never end.

Thanks for the help though and I will contact you via PM for the locks.

Now I need to get a temp gauge for the UC.
