Re: Soldering Piano Wire

Piano wire is awkward stuff to solder as you have found out. La-Co flux was recommended to me for steel a long time ago and seems to help, and I have used it on the odd occasion I have had to solder steel wire. Philip I agree Phil. I've successfully used 'La-Co' for some time now for this purpose.

Re: what flux for white metal?

Suitable motor/gearbox for Finney M7

Recommendations please for a suitable combination of Mashima motor and High Level gearbox for a Finney M7.

The two Portescap gearbox sides are missing from the etch so l won't be able to use my last Portescap for the build.

Many thanks

Re: whats the state of the art in baseboards

I can't agree. Complicate things?.... The construction is so quick and the end product is very robust. A typical 1200mm x 600mm baseboard takes me about two hours to make with an two day glue drying period. The ply trackbed profiles take a little longer, less if larger areas of ply are used where th...

Re: Scaleforum 2016

Regarding the DRAG test track there are four P4 circuits with two loops. The middle two curves are super-elevated and there is a selection of crossovers from A5 through to D12.

The one '00' circuit has two loops.
