Stone conveyor for Andersley HO layout

Recommended Posts

The conveyor is now complete and working.

 

The conveyor was constructed in brass, with rollers to drive the belt turned on the lathe. The belt is a spare part for an electric wood plane. The motor is a spare one from a Roco locomotive, driving steel/brass gears on a layshaft which drives the belt roller through plastic spur gears. Adjusting screws are fitted to keep optimum belt tension.

Below is the brass receiving hopper to channel the stone from belt into wagons. The conveyor unit just rests in grooves above the hopper. The electrical connection is by plug/socket so the unit can be easily removed for maintenance.

A hopper made in plastic sheet sits in the belt unit to feed stone onto the belt.
