Peco Frizinghall turntable

4066 Views 8 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  CKC45
I have installed the Peco OO turntable with the Frizinghall motor kit. There have been other threads about this combination but not mentioning this particular problem as far as I am aware.
The motor is driven from the same Gaugemaster controller as the track, via a DPDT centre-off switch
It works (subject to installing the polarity switch) but the rotation is not smooth; the turntable judders. The worm is not jammed against the large gear:

so I can't see why this is happening.
The one design fault I find is that having cemented the securing collar underneath, one can not get to the central spindle for maintenance or adjustment.
Can anyone advise? Thanks. Colin

Many thanks for the useful and sound suggestions lads. Col
A medical problem held up completion. Eventually I did shorten both the drive/worm spindle and the main vertical TT spindle. Then I reprinted the brick-work on thinner paper and replaced it! I also applied a (hopefully) plastics-friendly grease TF2 by Weldtite to the worm and cog to take up some more of the movement. It all helped quite a lot but there is a little residual jerkiness.
