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
I dont like the look of this set up at all,from an engineering point of view the mesh is far to coarse,and the shafts far to long,every vibration in the mechanism will reverbarate through the bottom of the turn table as mentioned before,I chucked mine in the spare's box in the end and built one out of meccano using drive belts quiet as a mouse,if you want to keep it,everything that the previous lads have said must be done,and then go and get from a auto centre some door skin deadening sheet,(anti vibration ) and stick it to the bottom of the turntable,it will take most of the noise out of the system
