    MTB point Motor

    I was in need of some low profile under board point motors for my HOn3 Narrow Gauge Layout that’s been built with low profile frame work thus has only limited under board height
    They needed to be slow motion type as the snap style solenoid isn’t recommended for the HOn3 Micro-engineering fine scale points I’m using.
    Whilst doing some internet research I came across a company MTB-Model co
    The company was founded in 2010 in Prague, Czech Republic

    MTB make a under board motor that is both low profile and motor controlled slow motion type.
    It’s called a MP5 and looks to fit the requirements I need.
    The motor is adjustable in its throw from 3-6-9-and 12mm of range and has a couple of switches if needed and a plug in quick connector so can be mounted then plugged in.
    The 3mm setting will be prefect for what I need
    So with the use of Google translator I found one of their suppliers that shipped to Australia and also took PayPal so safe to order from with out worry.

    There being shipped DHL so when the parcel arrives hopefully next week, I’ll post up some photos of the units and the install of them.

    Yes could of used a servo but with no inbuilt switching on a servo would have to have auxiliary switches as well plus no 3D printer in my workshop to print a bracket to do the job :faint:unlike Toto I’m not down the road to pop by and get one made :avatar:

    Now still waiting for them to turn up DHL is being a bit slack in there delivery on this one still says it’s waiting to be exported from some place In Germany :whatever:
