Re: [SergentEng] Re: Kato coupler conversions
I used the DW scale couplers buffers and the narrow shank couplers without the supplied boxes. I used a 2-56 screw in the original home in the Kato mounting pad. It works OK but the coupler doesn't stick out far enough, it's basically against the buffer.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Next I ground down the sides of the shank around the mounting hole on a compatible shank coupler. It can be ground down enough so it fits through scale buffer, but using the original Kato hole the coupler sticks out too far.
I took some measurements with my digital calipers and I think the new shortened compatible shank coupler will work. I don't have any on hand, so it's time to place another order with Sergent.
Here's how it looks so far. This picture was taken with my cell phone so it isn't the best. When I get this project finished I'll take pix with my DSLR.
