A list of suggested topics for future meetings. Members are welcome to propose additions.
|All things solder & flux||A general discussion of the techniques we use for soldering together, or indeed otherwise, metal kits such as brass & nickel silver. In particular, favourite solders, fluxes, cleaners & irons and what we’ve found out along the way.||A number of us are just starting to experience metal kit assembly and would appreciate learning from those with more experience.|
|DCC primer and the fun of sound||A high level overview of digital control combined with enabling DCC on a lane or two of the test track and experiencing the thrill of sound!||We’ll find out if digital sound really makes our scale models any more life-like.|
|Turnout construction||Discussion of the technique used for constructing turnouts, especially curved turnouts and the troublesome common crossing. Possibly some sort of working session?||A request from Rob K as he has built several as experiments and seems to have a problem getting the common crossing to curve correctly.|
|Couplings||Almost anything other than the tension lock coupling – in general what are people using and how do they get them to work.||In particular the AJ coupling, lining it up and successfully coupling and de-coupling.|
