Whilst I have good stock levels for most motor kit components, some motor shipments from my suppliers are affected by events in China (and now globally). Out of stock kits will be restocked as soon as possible, but I may not be able to provide a specific timescale. Please subscribe to updates for out of stock products (on each product's listing page) and you'll get an email notification as soon as new stock is added.
My wife is also pregnant and in the government-defined more vulnerable group, so I have had to amend my shipping days to reduce the amount of contact that we have with public spaces. For orders that are placed via my website, and until the national picture is clearer, I will ship these at mid-day each Tuesday and, where possible, Friday. Please rest assured that orders will be shipped as soon as they can be, but it may take a day or two longer than normal.
Thank you for your 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.
