    Question about a mail order company

    They take PayPal so that's what I would use to pay, I guess if it goes south on me I could file a clam with PP ? I'm actually more concerned with poor fill rate and slow shipping. T.C.

    Question about a mail order company

    I live in Fl. the company is in Ga. I think. I got a quote on the shipping for what I wanted to order and It was reasonable, so reasonable prices and reasonable shipping does that through up a red flag ? Hoping to get a reply from someone who has dealt with this company...

    Question about a mail order company

    I am looking at the TrainMasters website and they seem to have good prices and reasonable shipping. Has anyone bought from them and if so how was the service in regards to fill rate and shipping (fast or slow) ? Any comment or advice is welcome Thanks T.C.

    Question about the PH&D RR

    I am looking for information about the PH&D RR from back in the 40's through the 80's. Specifically pictures of or with the crew of the trains. The reason is my Grandfather on my mothers side worked on the PH&D all his life, but apparently he was camera shy as I cant find any pictures of him...

    Hookup wire

    I looks like nice wire, just keep in mind that 30 gauge is very small, I don't know if it's large enough for wiring track ? T.C.

    Hookup wire

    Thanks again Greg, I have found what I was looking for, I got the 30 gauge and it's just the rite size, any smaller would be to small. So this worked out well This is a neat little set and has 66 feet of each color plus the other stuff for 12.95 I may order the 22 gauge just to have it on hand...

    Hookup wire

    Thanks for the reply, I'm into HO, HOn30 all my track is wired with bell wire probably 22-24 gauge. I'm not using this wire for track hookup I'm using it to wire building lights (led and bulbs) and to wire engines. So I'm looking for a small very flexible wire, like they use for grain of weat...

    Hookup wire

    Thanks for the replies, never thought about the cable. Although I would have to buy one to cut it up and I don't know how cost effective that would be? The magnet wire is to stiff but I appreciate the thought . I may have to use the 30 g, I ordered some today so I'll see ? T.C.

    Hookup wire

    Where can I get hookup wire smaller than AWG30 ? Only thing I can find is 30 and that seems large for hooking up led's and small lite bulbs. Needs to be very flexible and stranded. T.C.

    How can I "destatic" the grass and tools?

    As the old line goes "that's what she said". I ask my wife and that's just what she suggested I do, try a dryer sheet........................didn't work. T.C.

    How can I "destatic" the grass and tools?

    I built a static grass applicator and it all works fine, except for one thing............How do I get this grass not to stick to "everything" ? This stuff goes everywhere and is hard to clean up due to the fact it wants to continue to stick even after the power is turned off. I know women have...

    Question about protecting a product idea

    I've always heard if it's that good of an idea to just go ahead and make/sell it . Because once the cat is out of the bag someone will change your design in the smallest way, call it there's and "they" will make and sell it therefore beating you out of all the glory and money. If it's really...

    Train room electronics question

    Thanks for the replies, that's a lot of info on AC led's, I'll bookmark the page for the future. I did find bulbs to replace the fuse bulbs, the other bulb looks like a large bullet bulb (about 1/2")with two wires coming from it. I'm sure I can find a 12v bulb to replace it ? I would post a...
