Re: Just ruined my XU2175M XURON TRACK CUTTER

Just used mine to chop up and old rabbit cage which was made from 1/8 wire, they chopped through that lot without breaking sweat.

They will be the last set of pliers you will buy so well worth the money.

Re: electrofrog points

I would still fit insulated joiner to all the frog V connections, that way you can have power to the track all the time via the usual connections to the bus, otherwise as said above it would be a dead section on powered when the turnout is switched, if you had droppers connected to the bus you will ...

Re: Turntable

I also went with the Peco offering but then went with the Merg Turntable controller & Motor, now have a fully indexed motorised turntable for under £100 with the closest commercial option being around £500.

Re: How to curve Flextrack

I use something similar, but it's a lot longer allowing up to 24 inch radi and is market of every inch for different radius

Difference is I use a screw for the pivot and roughly bend the track into shape first then just use the wooden jig for the final forming.

It works quite well.

Re: Cheap DCC decoder and controller wanted.

You could go the DCC++ route on an Arduino for about £15 for a clone Arduino UNO and motor shield, you will need to connect it to a PC or Laptop to run it but you can use your smart phone as a handset using an App

Re: Recommended 6 pin DCC decoders for N?

For high quality and low'ish price I always go with the Zimo MX622 now replaced with the Zimo MX617 both first class decoders and only £20, also with a look is the Gaugemaster DCC23, if space is a bit tight the Zimo MX616 will fit in the smallest if spaces but at £32 It's a little pricey as is the L...

Re: A life time ban from that "other place"...

It's quite easy to get banned from the other place, all you have to do is post that you have had bad service from a dealer or supplier who happens to be a financial backer of the other place.

Then sit back and see how quickly you find you have been banned

Don't ask me how I know ;)
