An alternative to soldering on wires is to crimp on two female socket pins removed from a standard servo connector.

Late to the party as usual these days Peter
How many of these have you thrown away ?




No not the pens, the plastic tops. . Cut off the top to the  size you want, glue  a small washer to the bottom, drill small hole in the top, paint, bobs your Aunty

Wasnie me, a big boy did it and ran away

Peter,
Look at the Snuff MIll Building…the wall light on there is an idea of Max's, a 3mm led pushed through a 3mm washer and the legs bent carefully to form the 'bracket'.

I'm still following along Doug - albeit very slowly……………

Other "projects" - ideas coming from SWMBO - have taken over much of the spring so far this year so model railways have taken very much of a back seat.

I'm trying to relieve that situation but the external forces are so very powerful ……………………….:'(

Have a look at these, Peter. It's on the Ozzie site, but you may be able to get them over there.

Thanks Pete.  It seems to be a Chinese site with German verbage !

I'll see if I can find them on either eBay.fr or eBay.dr

Looks like a decent product.

To be honest Pete - I didn't try very hard.  Things have a tendency to move on and the station building I wanted them for has returned to the back-burner for the time being.
