+ Update 20 August 2020 +
I am delighted to announce that my wee second man was born safely at the end of July and we're all getting used to him being on the footplate. Scottish Government advice is currently to reduce the contact that new-borns have with the outside world due to Covid-19. For that reason, I will still have to post parcels once a week, but, wherever possible, I will ship non-signed for large letter items twice weekly. I am hoping that towards the end of September I may be able to return to a more regular dispatch pattern. Thank you for your continued support and patience, and also to everyone who has got in touch with their best wishes. It is very much appreciated. Best wishes, David
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.
