triang type speed controller
« on: May 08, 2015, 11:01:31 PM »

I wonder if anyone may have surplus Triang Railways type controller please? The type that has a big red knob that turns to a a99djust the speed of the motor.My reason for asking is that I am having a mechanism made,on which to place one of my lifeboat models,used for raising funds for the RNLI which will then simulate it being on the sea.The item I need would control the speed of the pitching and rolling.
Cheap please,if anyone could help?
Many Thanks

so could you not jury rig a motor with a belt driven shaft to a cam to create the rocker motion, or several belts and pulleys to reduce the speed of the shaft to the cam creating the rocking motion, a bobs board could further reduce the speed of the motor
