Point Levers

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

About time for an update here I guess :) . Taken a bit longer than expected as I wanted to get a bit of a start on these, so that I had at least a fighting chance of keeping up with you guys. Have been casting away at every opportunity building up a stock. Doesnt really look a lot, but there is many hours which have gone into this little collection of bits.

This evening I will start packaging them, so I guess it is time to let you start ordering them (there ought to be a frightened emoticon :) ). In an effort to release these in a manageable way, I'm not putting them in the trade section yet or on Pepper7 yet, so this is the only place you will see them for now. Usual ordering process, so a brief resume below.

Price for a pack of 2 levers (one of each design) is £3.00 (3.00 GBP) plus a £1.50 (1.50 GBP) postage charge per order to anywhere.
Payment by Paypal to steveblackdog@blueyonder.co.uk (email me if you would like me to raise a Paypal invoice for you to pay against).

Alternatively, a UK cheque made payable to "S Bennett" and sent to

95, King Arthurs Road
Exeter
EX4 9DS

In both cases, dont forget to include your postal address for them to be shipped to. If you want to order other stuff aswell, get in touch and we can sort that on an individual basis.

I hope that covers everything, ask away if there are any questions.

I have bought a couple of slow acting point motors from ebay, tortoise? I am going to use them under the board to move the levers and the points, so a ghost hand will move the levers for me!

This is an interesting thread, having just stumbled upon it in my quest for Gnowledge. ;)

Has anyone a video of the points/lever in action?

I don't have a video of it in action, but I have one on my layout and confirm that they work very well.

Hi
I usually add a length of wire into the throw arm as I am pouring the resin. This gives it added strength. You can see it in the arm when "in the raw" but not when painted.
My levers are cosmetic but the wire adds strength against transport damage and at shows etc. Damaged ones can be bent back into place.

Just a though

I presume the levers are still in production Steve?

Are they available off-the-shelf or only to order?

Thanks,
