+ Covid-19/Coronavirus Dispatch +
My wife is nearing the end of pregnancy and remains in the government-defined more vulnerable group, so I regret that I am still unable to provide next day dispatch. This because I must continue to reduce the amount of contact that we have with public spaces.
Until national restrictions are relaxed further/or our baby has arrived, I will ship orders at mid-day each Tuesday. Where possible, I will try to post items that are not 'signed for' on Fridays as well, but I cannot guarantee it.
Please rest assured that orders will be shipped as soon as they can be, but it may take a few days longer than normal. As soon as I am able to return to a next day dispatch pattern, I will.
Thank you for your continued understanding and support. Stay well.
Diode Voltage Dropper Kit (Preassembled) for 6V CD/DVD Motor Conversion

If you’re using a 6V dc motor in your Lima or Hornby ringfield motor conversion, and you’re using DC control or DCC without CV5 functionality, you’ll need to consider a diode voltage dropper to protect the motor from over-voltage and current.
Our pre-assembled diode voltage dropper kit includes all of the core components – four surface mount diodes and a piece of pre-cut and scored circuit board – soldered together for immediate use.
All you have to do is solder the wires to the motor/from the pickups or decoder (be careful not to dislodge the diodes). Use the included Kapton tape (it’s got a protective film over its sticky side) to insulate all exposed copper.
Detailed wiring instructions are available in our ringfield adaptor kit instructions booklet.
If soldering is your idea of fun and you’d happily construction the diode dropper yourself, our diode voltage dropper components kit provides you all that you need to get cracking. You can order it here.
