DelTang Pricing Changes

The dollar is falling, the pound is rising, and DelTang has raised prices. For the time being, I’ve managed to not raise prices on the most popular items. However, I’m guessing that I’ll probably need to raise them in the coming months. I will be up at Kimberton this weekend, and may have some new […]

Setting up DelTang’s Rx102 Receiver

I’ve recently started to resell DelTang’s Rx102 receiver, which is intended for use with live steam or large scale trains that have power requirements that go beyond the current handling capabilities of the Rx65 (by use of an external ESC and reversing switch).

Laser Experimentation

In my last post, I briefly mentioned that I had ordered a lower-power laser engraver/cutter. While waiting for mine arrive, I’ve been experimenting with an even lower-powered model that belongs to Kevin over at Berrett Hill Trains. One of the ideas I had was to use the laser to “drill” the holes for the controls […]
