48378Re: [Z_Scale] MTL Switches motor throwing
- Oct 30, 2006Hi Stephen
A while back I mentioned the use of "memory wire.
Take a look at the following info.http://www.floodland.nl/trein/info/elektro_en_4.htm
This may help you.
dumb question 1. What is the magnet for, under the new MTL switches?
smart question 2. I have been pondering how to throw these switches
with a tortoise machine. My first thought, is to drill a small hole
in that little round tab on the side, run the tortoise wire up
through it, and turn it sideways to throw it back and forth. Another
was to push it up into the magnet, or into that sliding bar
somewhere from underneath. Another idea was to use the actuators,
from the tortoise mounts etc... and move the little round tab
somehow with that. One of the more ingenius ideas i thought of, was
to use a and electro magnet somehow to push the magnet one way or
another from underneath.
My question is, any body think of any great way yet to throw these
switches? AND What will MTL do, to throw these switches.(I suspect a
side mounted motor, since i see two slots on the side with the tab,
that would be perfect fit for a side mounted coil motor. This is the
exact same way fleischman does there switches in n scale.
