Fitting Dingham Couplings

Postby PeteScR » Tue Mar 19, 2019 4:44 pm

Anyone got any tips for fitting Dingham couplings. I am aware that to get them to operate properly the height needs to be accurate and the hook centralised. I also read that sprung buffers should be glued to stop movement. I have never seen a jig for aligning the coupling whilst fitting and have tried to lash one up, but thought I would ask the question anyway, So, whats your method after taking out the plastic hook from the loco/wagon?

Cheers

I have plans for a jig that I have used quite successfully. If you PM me with your email address I'll send them to you.
