    Turntable Drive

    Here is the Aros Electronics drive just as it arrived with a 3/16 shaft and 24 positions to match my atlas roundhouse.
    Bench test has proven to be reliable in either direction within .005" . Very Impressed. Tomorrow I'll try to install and take pictures.

    Like everyone else, those Indian ruins are something I've never seen on a layout before, and are really well done. Hats off to you!

    That Aros turntable drive looks ingenious Mike. I am thinking of getting one too but will wait till you get yours installed to see what it does for you

    Robin

    Robin , It will sell for $189.00 I think and if it works well it's still a much better deal than $400. The Quality of workmanship is supreme.
    The new drive also has a more stable and bigger step motor.
