2 speed transmission
« on: February 02, 2023, 09:53:37 pm »
Bought an RC transmission, it has a 1:8 and a 1:4.8 and in between is a neutral. I intend to use this with the H75 engine to power a small locomotive, but with some creative planning I think it would be quite nice to use it for giving fast and low torque engines some extra torque. Everything
runs on bearings and all the gears are very hard sintered steel. I don't know if the part that engages or disengages each gear will be able to hold up to being the "clutch" of my locomotive. Thought it may be of use for y'all! [ Guests cannot view attachments ]

An interesting project.

I look forward to hearing how it turns out.
