Helping Hand tool

Got a helping hand with magnifying glass, should I heat shrink the clip jaws to protect the wires?

Re: new member - Need DCC chipping advice

Thanks for the replies, starting with a Hornby class 29 and a Hornby decoder. Nobody move or the Scottish loco gets it.

new member - Need DCC chipping advice

I am now ready to start chipping a number of older Locos to DCC and have been advised to wire in a 8 pin to connect with the decoder Is there a video on the net and is this good advice rather than hard wiring because of upgrading.

Mod edit
Title amended
