Re: tortoise switch machines vs peco point motors


If you use a torque wire you only need a 0.050" hole. And if you miss you can try again and don't have a 0.375" hole to fill in.

Hi Bernie


I should be made clear that installing Peco switch motors calls for a very large hole, a rectangular one at that, under the track, whereas a Tortoise only needs an easy-to-drill ~.5” hole. 


Have you thought of using the adaptor base – you can use a ~0.375” hole.  This is what I use.
