    I've recently been speaking with a group that actively encourages youngsters to get involved with engineering (Under 14s). Reason being is I've tried to source boiler suits for Under 16s, but all that I've found are a cheap polyester mix that wouldn't be of much around steam locomotives and sparks from machinery. Turns out this group have had similar issues - yet whilst they have found a potential supplier the current minimum order requirement is a bit beyond them.

    Are there are other groups / individuals out there looking to source boiler suits for youngsters? If so can you drop me a message and hopefully we might be able to generate a combined order...

    All I've enquired to have high Polyester content.

    No-one able to help? Is there not anyone involved with youth groups reading this?

    You may need to look at an se Asian supplier (my flameproof ones are company approved from china). so may need to buy from Internet. Joosty were acceptable, but may no longer be operating. Borkit may have smaller sizes (to fit the 4foot 3owners)
