Member to member sales at Stoneleigh

Does anyone know how the member to meber sales work at the national 16mm show?

Do you have to book them in?
Is there a limit?
Does the show take anything from the sale?

Anything else I need to know?

That's really good, sign writing has always been a skill I have envied, simply because it's something that I have tried and just can not do, well done :salute:

Just so people know, the guidelines for selling on the forum have been updated to include, photos, price and a rough location. This is the information people need to make an informed decision.

Personally I wouldn't go to Tony as I have had some unpleasent and very offensive dealings with him. Just my personal experience, but loads of other really helpful friendly people out there.

Could you just draw something up so I know what sort of thing you are looking for, I may, or may not have something already or that can be adapted / modified.

Re: Cheapo diesel sound card

Thanks for your replies guys. I wasn't having ago at anyone in the thread and like I said I did find it interesting reading, It's OK Rod, I don't think anyone thought you was "having a go" at anyone. Electrics can be baffling that is for sure, electronics even more so, even for me. I was ...

Re: Cheapo diesel sound card

On reading this thread I am glad it's all worked out Philip, yet for me and I presume most of use who are not that well informed with electricity stuff, buying a 'Cheapo Sound Card' isn't something that would be worth it for use, possibly because we would end up blowing stuff up with all those resi...

Re: Cabbed Hunslet

Not much on this for a while, mojo isn't all that high at the moment. I have not rivited it, added detail, nor weathered it, not even added buffers, but it is as it is and makes a nice base for a loco. Other than adding buffers, that's probably as far as I will go on this for now. Sorry it isn't to ...

Re: Cheapo diesel sound card

PS. It's probably advisable to protect the link from P3 to the soundcard with a 1k resistor, or maybe even a 4.7k resistor if you're powering the soundcard with 7.4v Rik PS - Now corrected the label for the switch and added the 1k resistor to the wiring diagram (see above) I am no electrician nor t...

Re: Cheapo diesel sound card

That's pretty much the wiring I used for mine, but without the buck convertor, the sound card I bought can handle 2 x li-ion batteries (8.4v) with no issue so just run them direct from the power input of the RX.

Re: Cheapo diesel sound card

Just to update on this, from my POV. I've been in discussions with Andy because I had to get him to reprogram it before when I couldn't, and thought he might have some insight on what I've been doing wrong. It has been more and more unexpected things and not accepting inputs. Eventually we went rig...

Re: British businesses who won't sell to Canada

Yet again while looking at a small-scale manufacturer's website, I saw a note saying "at the present time, we can not sell kits to Canada, the U.S.A., or countries in the E.U." What in particular are you looking at buying? There is a chance that someone in the UK might buy whatever it is ...

Re: Cheapo diesel sound card

Can you borrow a prog 4 to programme it with, or borrow a different TX, like a TX20? I have a Prog4 but it no longer works with the serial cables/Coolterm.. it's all obsolete. Nobody I know within half a days journey to borrow from ( I think you are about the nearest! :roll: ) unfortunately and it'...
