Re: Scale

1/8th full size is another way of expressing a scale ratio of 1:8. 1:22.58 would closely represent standard gauge on 2.5" gauge track. To determine inches-to-the-foot from a scale ratio, you just need to divide 12 by the ratio. 12/22.58 = .5314 (12/8=1.5 for 1/8 scale) 2.5" gauge track divided by .5...

Re: Standard Injector Update

The fittings line up and the Union nuts are the same thread.
None of the internals are interchangeable.

Standard Injector Update

"Is it interchangeable with a SuperScale Economy?" is the most frequent question I get regarding the Standard Injector. Well, now EE will offer a SECOND VERSION of the Standard Injector that IS directly compatible with a SuperScale Economy. This will not replace the Standard Injector, but will be an...

2.5" Monitor Injector Update

Hi Everyone, I was all set to start shipping out Monitor Injectors today, but I found a critical error in my machining of one of the castings during final assembly. Unfortunately I will need to get all these castings replaced and machined, and double unfortunately it's by far the hardest casting to ...

Re: Kozo"s k 27

The Kozo K-27 is 1.16" scale on 3.5" gauge track. To get from 1.16" scale to 2.5" scale just divide the larger by the smaller. 2.5/1.166 = 2.1428. this would be your multiplier (7.5/3.5 gives you the same number). If you're building to 7.25 gauge and wanted to scale the locomotive to the gauge, you ...

Re: Kozo"s k 27

If I remember correctly, kozo explicitly recommended not scaling up the K-27 due to design considerations that were specifically for its size in 3.5” gauge.

Re: Orders & Pre-orders up to 15% off through April 12th

I should mention the Monitors were only discounted at 5% With getting settled into the new shop and home in the middle of tax season, and going full bore with monitor production on top of all the hindrances that Covid has blessed us with, I’m doing all that I can. Don’t forget I’m the only person at...

Re: Orders & Pre-orders up to 15% off through April 12th

Hi Philip, Typically what I do is create a list of people who are interested in a product. When the product is ready to ship the people on my list get first priority on the inventory. They’re not formal pre-orders, so if they’ve changed their mind it’s no problem. The discount was for folks who want...

Re: Spoked wheels in CAD

It’s extra work to draw the center like the prototype, but with 3D printed patterns or CNC’d patterns the extra work is only in CAD.

The profile of my driver center also allows for significantly larger fillets on the spokes than would otherwise be possible.

Re: Spoked wheels in CAD

These methods are perfectly fine if you only need to create a representation of the driver in your CAD model, and will be purchasing a driver casting. However, if the intention is to make your own driver pattern, draft needs to be taken into consideration. Below is an example of a driver drawn as a ...
