Let's use "Connector Pin Remover" to hide the annoying cables from your Diorama !

Thanks for your continued interest in Rokuhan Z scale products!

Today we are going to talk about the Pin removal tool.
Before talking about topic, we have a question for you.

How do you hide turnout control wire when making your diorama?
Would you like to avoid the annoying situation shown below? 

* Placing cables under tracks? 
* Making a big hole in your benchwork to drop your cable below the layout base? 

PIN17.jpg



If so, here is the answer for you!

【A018 Connector Pin Remover】  JPY 400
*Only available at Rokuhan showroom and online shop.
IMG_9317.jpg


How to use it?

1. This tool consists of two pieces, a straight tube and "L" shaped pusher tool.
IMG_93201.jpg

2. Insert the tube in the connector over pin, and slide down until it reaches bottom of socket, then insert the pusher into the tube, to push the pin from connector body.
IMG_93245.jpg IMG_93274.jpg


Then, switch to another pin to repeat same process.


3. To pass the cable below the turnout, drill 3.5 mm hole at edge of turnout as shown and pass pins throughout one at a time and pull balance of wire through hole.
IMG_93544.jpg


4. There is a polarity to this and its pins. 
"+" belongs to the cable with white stripe and it goes into the plug in first hole below latch release as shown.  
IMG_93294.jpg PIN60.jpg


5. Install pins by pushing them back into connector body until click in.



Here is the one more tip.

You can also use this tool for removal of pins in "Feeder cable (A008)".
"+" cable goes into connector with white stripe as shown.

Enjoy your taste by adding "Diaphragm" on your train !

Thanks for your continued interest in Rokuhan Z scare products.
 
Today we are going to talk about the Diaphragm

 
First of all the purpose of the diaphragm is to provide a safe weather proof way for passengers and crew to move between cars while the train has been made up.
 
In a traditional Japanese Commuter consist (made up train set) the diaphragm's are in place on all center line doors except front door of head end and rear door of tail end car, so no need for a diaphragm, however there are occasions when two consists are to be connected, then diaphragms must be installed on these doors.   
 
Diaphragm is detached when not needed and attached when required.
 
Rokuhan diaphragm is designed to be attached or detachable.

 
Here is the list of Rokuhan train to which Rokuhan diaphragm can be installed on head end or tail end cars.

Type 113, Type 115, Type 415, KIHA 52, KIHA 24 and Type 50 


 
IMG_diaphragm.jpg
Rokuhan diaphragm was copied successfully based on full sized train, but is very small.



IMG_diaphragm_asse.jpg
It's designed to be very simple to install or remove without using any tools!




Let's compare head end cars with and without diaphragm attached.

IMG_920222.jpg IMG_9231.jpg
Appearance is dramatically changed when diaphragm is attached.




IMG_92442.jpg
It also makes head end cars connect more realistically!

Now you know the diaphragm is very important to make your train more realistic, please consider adding them to your trains!
