April Group Meeting - AJ couplings

Postby CDGFife » Sun Apr 21, 2019 10:06 am

Our monthly group meeting at Dechmont on Sat 13th was a session concerning AJ couplings.
We started with a talk about the basics from Ray and then various members demonstrated which jigs they use and how they bend/fix/locate/drop their AJs. Several folks had a go at bending the coupling head (some for the first time) and there was also discussion on magnets, electromagnets and electronically operated AJ couplings. Chris McCarthy brought along his new test track with built in poor track amongst other things. All in all it was a very interesting afternoon.

The following photos will give you a flavour of the day:
