Product Description

On30 9"(36ft) Gallows Turntable kit.

The motor is no longer included with this kit, but the shaft coupler, motor mount and motor screws are included. The motor is readily available on ebay, Search "0.6rpm gearbox motor" - £10-£15 from several sources, often with free shipping.

The design is similar to the Laws turntable but smaller. Perfect for turning your Shay, Climax, Heisler or Forney in true backwoods style!

On30 and On3 options are standard.

Basic dimensions in images below.....scroll down!

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 turntables.

The bridge wheel assemblies are KHM's latest turntable wheel "technology". The angles are set by the assembly - its almost foolproof! wheels are 12mm and double flanged. they turn freely on their axles and track the circle rail which allows for assembly tolerance.

Below the pit floor, the turntable is now powered by a very capable motor rated at 0.6rpm @ 12V,  for smooth running and slow speed. The shaft turns in oil-bearing bronze bush.

Circle rail: this is soldered to PCB ties. the kit comes with a assembly jig so you can reliable fit the rail. It is so easy complete novices have done it. Not much more soldering skill required than soldering wires to track for power. some modellers glue and spike the circle rail - again the assembly jig will help that too.

Bridge rail: for this kit I have decided not to include any bridge rail. several reasons for this but mostly because its so easy to fit. If modelling in On30 then Peco SL100 track (OO or HO) ties fit neatly between the jig rails - same for ME track. 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. 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 :)
