Our 'mission' at Hemingway Kits is to provide uniquely practical and challenging projects for the small workshop owner. Our customers include Model and Experimental Engineers, Horologists, Aeromodellers, Vehicle Restorers, Instrument Makers, Gunsmiths - craftsmen of virtually every persuasion.

The Hemingway Toolroom
Established by Neil Shackleton Hemingway in 1976, our workshop accessory range has grown to include over 100 tooling projects. Treat us as your Production Engineering department, providing the tooling to help you to:

  • Work to more satisfying standards
  • Complete work more quickly.
  • Undertake more complicated operations.

The Hemingway Engine Bay
In 2006 we acquired Woking Precision Models, a company established in the UK in 1947. More recently, in 2010 we acquired Classic Engine Models trading from Kansas in the States since the 70's. Our new range of Internal Combustion, Hot Air and Steam engines takes us in fresh direction. Each of these 'prime movers' has been carefully researched and developed for manufacture within the small workshop and each has become a design-classic.
