Re: carbon brushes/springs

I was going to say they are very similar to ordinary Hornby springs and brushes.. Mind you, it depends on the motor we are thinking of. But I did notice how similar the ones I looked at were. As a child when I lost a brush I would use lead from a pencil and I made my own springs (Or used Mainline co...
