Alteration / conversion of the 1502 battery truck

14. For several reasons the contacts inside the battery-tenders are often broken or rusty and thus no longer serve as they should. I can offer the conversion for the 1502 Battery Truck from 3 x AA-batteries to 3 x AAA-batteries.

You send me your 1502 battery truck and I will insert an AAA battery holder - using remade cables and plugs. If you need plugs as well - you will be asked for that in mail-order-form. This conversion including my expenses for shipping cost.

At least EU compatible batteries - especially low-cost batteries - serve the tender - rechargeables still do not fit.

 33.-€ for shipping in Europe and 39.- for overseas shipping.

 
True to original speed
 
The next two pictures show an alteration to the original power supply in order to achieve a speed which is closer to the true speed. Simply insert a dummy as shown - consting of any current leading material. This kind of dummy may as well be used in the cabins of any electrix steam- or diesel loco.

Replacement cable-Sets for the battery tenders 1502 / 1015 / 1520 / 1521

13. I can provide complete cable Sets for the 15XX tenders. Each Set consists of 2 yellow/red/blue or violet cables with crimped-on plugs and red isolation hose. These Sets are already configered to be used in the 4-axle coaches. If you want to use them in the twin-axle tenders you have to shorten the cables on your own - but that should be no problem. Red, dark blue and violett cables are available as well - please state that when ordering!!!

Cables for the 1504 E Shell battery tender have to be ordered seaparately!!! In this case crimping and riveting has to be done inside the lid by your own.

Overseas: The Set-price is 7,00 €uro / pair - each extra pair is 3,- € - shipping included.

Wheel handles for the 511 side tipper

12. Finally I found a fellow collector who managed to reproduce the wheel handles for the 511 side tippers. Only the white version will be available - and needs a fixation by means of a drop of glue!

The 1st wheel handle costs 4.- € in Europe - each further wheel costs 1,50€ - (all incl. shipping). Overseas charges are subject to individual calculation. You may order here.

Crane hooks

I can offer lasered remade crane hooks for the 095 Dock Yard Crane, 200 Dockland, the 514 orange crane wagon and the orange 023 railroad crane. The shaft of the remake is approx. 1 mm longer than the original - but has no visual nor other effect.

The price is 4 USD / each and includes shipping.

 

Window glasses

I have a "lot of" remade window-glasses for the 520 and 521 coaches "lying around" here.

If required - send me a letter containing 2 x 1 USD for the 1st pair of "glasses" - each additional pair costs 1 (one) USD extra. This price includes shipping.

 

Signals

very often the base / socket, which is pushed onto the prolonged sleepers, for the 022 signal is missing. Here you will see how the create a re-make. In principle the base / socket of the switchers, "home" of the lever" is identical - just 2 small nuts are missing for fixing the 2 "noses" of the signal's base. These may be made using a 1 mm drill.

 
 

Crew re-makes

for the 504 crew wagon - also used at the excavator- and crane trucks 758, 759, 860 and 864.

Really excellent re-makes. If you are interested please contact. The price is 8,50 Euro / each - plus shipping. Not really cheap - but really worth the price.

 

Treads for the excavators

I'm able to provide remakes which do fit really excellent. Available are both known tread versions - the later one is shown at the bottom of the picture.

Please . 20 €uro / Pair incl. shipping in Europe and overseas

Clockwork springs

I'm able to provide NEW clockwork springs for loco clockworks. Spring length is 1370 mm and thus is good for at least 13 semi-windup rounds (as the original). The price 15.- €uro.

Repair of clockwork springs

Since the steel used for the clockwork springs is very hard - making it nearly impossible to machine or repair it, the manufacturers used to anneal the steel in order to drill / punch a hole of 2.4 mm into the "inner end" for fixing it to the wind-up wheel. And this is the position where most of the springs are broken today. The demounted spring can be repaired - "cold punching" is possible - just find somebody  (I can) who is able to punch 2.4 mm holes. You may then replace the spring. This repair work - if possible (not all springs are worth being repaired) - results in a little shortage of the spring  and subsequently the clockwork is not running as long as before. But this is a possibility to have "scrap" run again.

Price for the replacement or repair works is 8.- €uro - plus actual shipping fees.

I do ship clockwork springs - 19.- € incl. fees in Europe and overseas!!!

 

Wooden cargo

Most of the wooden cargo is missing when acquiring Biller coaches nowadays. But these may easily be replaced using cheap wooden sticks as available in Hobby Shops or similar. 

For the 505 Timber wagon you may use 8 mm sticks - length 140 mm - 7 pieces adhered to a single wooden bunch. 

For the 510 Log lorry you may use 14 mm sticks - length 110 mm - 6 single sticks for each coach.
