Product Description

On30 11.25" (45ft) Gallows Turntable kit.

Everything included to make a fully working model, including motor.

This 45ft turntable is similar to the 42ft below - its just has a 3/4" longer bridge.  Sometimes that can be handy!

On30 and On3 options are standard - other O scale narrow gauges possible.

Basic dimensions in images below.....scroll down!  Hole required is 12".

The bridge is built up on a integral jig making for easy alignment. All parts that require angles, cutouts, cross joins are laser cut from  basswood to ensure the correct size, alignment and make assembly straight forward.

Gallows bridge detail includes laser cut square nuts, several sizes of washer as well as stays, stay saddles and stay ties.

The spider is simple and effective. Rather than create a complicated mechanism that costs a lot but cant really be seen, I have "suggested" the spider ring, and this allows me to use KHM's standard turning plate and pick-up assembly methods within the "spider space". That way the kit is able to draw on the proven performance of our other pit turntables.

The pit base design follows our existing gallows turntables with proven design and simple to assemble.

The bridge wheel assemblies are KHM's latest turntable wheel "technology". The angles are set by the assembly - its almost foolproof! Wheels are turned from brass on KHMs lathe and have double flanges to keep them on the circle rail. they are supplied chemically blackenned. 

Below the pit floor, the turntable is powered by a very capable 3rpm motor with further steel reduction gears for smooth running and slow speed, with the primary driven axle turning in oil-bearing bronze bushes.

Bridge rail: for this kit I have decided not to include any bridge rail. fitting your own track is so easy. If modelling in On30 then Peco SL100 track (OO or HO) ties fit neatly between the jig rails. In all cases the rail sits on the crossbeams.

Bridge deck has On3 and On30 options. with planking and bolt holes engraved.

Assembly is straightforward and broken down into sub-asssemblies. The kit is packed with this is mind, each sub-assembly having its own pack.

Instructions are mostly photos with lots of angles to take you through the build in a step by step fashion. They are no longer available as a printed option. Its takes lots of ink (cost), they are heavy (shipping).  You will be emailed instructions when I ship the product. If you wish to see them before purchase then I'm happy to send without any obligation... electrons are free :)
