Does a regular desk fan work the same as an electric car motor?

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

Question by Ghost: Does a regular desk fan work the same as an electric car motor?
I like working with motors and machines and making things go and i figured since they figured out how to make an electric engine powerful enough for cars that i could trick out my fan to run at like a hundred MPH Lol So to get familiar with motors like that, I’d take my fan apart but do they have like the same concept behind them or what?

Best answer:

Answer by Allan
Normal desk fans use an AC induction motor which operates on a different principle to that of the DC motor found in a car.

Can I use any couplers to couple all same scale model trains ?

Saturday, June 23rd, 2012

Question by : Can I use any couplers to couple all same scale model trains ?
Can you couple horn hook coupler rolling stock trains to a locomotive with a knuckle coupler ?

I bought 3 new rolling stock ho scale freight cars and want to hook them to a new ho scale locomotive with knuckle couplers ?

I understand that some couplers are considered to be better or easier to use than others but I only plan on a 36 inch circular track so will all couplers couple on all same scale trains ?

Can I still use my new locomotive to pull my new freight cars even though they have different styles of couplers ?

If not, how difficult is it to convert a locomotive knuckle coupler to a horn and hook coupler to pull my horn and hook trains ?

Best answer:

Answer by Terry F
no

Get rid of the horn couplers and replace with Knuckle couplers. KADEE web site will tell you the model to purchase depending on the model of stck car purchased.

Polar Express & Thomas Sharing the same Track

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

My demonstration of running one conventional and one TMCC train on the same line at the same time (“transitional mode”). You are limited by the conventional train (Thomas in this video) because if you change voltage that effects both engines so you don’t do that, but the TMCC remote let’s you slow down the TMCC train if needed. Normally I run both trains slower, but for this video, it was more challenging at faster speeds. I estimate track voltage at around 12 volts which is enough to keep both trains moving at a good speed. Ideally, you want just enough voltage to run both trains, with the conventional one not flying off the tracks when it’s by itself.

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

Question by acman319: Are the Hallmark Keepsake Ornament Lionel Trains the same size as N-Gauge model trains?
Every Christmas for a long time now, I have been getting my father the Hallmark Keepsake Lionel Train ornaments. He loves trains and especially these ornaments. I was wondering if these ornaments were the same size as the N-Gauge model trains because I want to see if I can put these trains on N-Gauge track. If I could do this, I want to get my a track to put these trains. Any input would be great!

How can I find out if Tri State Events of East Rutherford is a DS Max company? Same business model, but I want

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Question by ihatetristateevents: How can I find out if Tri State Events of East Rutherford is a DS Max company? Same business model, but I want
some sort of documented proof that this is an affiliated company. Is it even possible. This is one of those companies that promotes a training program, promotes only within and you are “trained” to own your own company. You are only paid by commission. There is no base pay and the atmosphere room and chanting and not being allowed to sit or lean during atmosphere is exactly like described in DS Max affiliates. Also is it possible that the company owner not even be aware that they are a DS Max affiliate, because no one who works there seems to be able to figure out who is at the top of this company. Any help on this topic is much appreciated since I am trying to peice this horrible puzzle that is becoming my boyfriends life together.
