I'd like to share my jig that I used when soldering the three wires onto my seep point motors. It's made from 2mm grey card & the point motor held in place with bull dog clips to stop it moving about whilst soldering the wires onto the PCB.

Not one burnt finger so I really rate this little jig. :lol:



Hope this may help other out there.

Cheers Mike.

Anything that saves fingers from hot solder, is worth the small effort in building a jig.

That's another good one for the Forum Index. Gone in under Jig, Seep and Wiring.

Hi, Mike,

 

Nice to see card in use....when all your tails are soldered on, you may like to consider

http://yourmodelrailway.net/view_topic.php?id=3303&forum_id=21&jump_to=57239#p57239

[Post 28]

as a means of holding everything centralised whilst fitting.

Additionally, it sounds like heresy, but if you are having problems getting Seeps to reliably switch frog polarity, especially on pointwork with a limited throw [Slips] then slackening off the mounting screws will almost certainly help. It allows the motor to 'jiggle' about a bit and lets the change-over switch contacts to close fully.

 

Good luck,

 

Doug
