Q. Hi, Can I use this product as the power bus with 14v ac for a DCC wired N gauge nodel railway? How will it accept soldered connections? Regards, Peter Hayward
A. Hi Peter. Thank you for your question. I can't see why you couldn't use this however you may be better off using wire. The track is copper and can be soldered. Any joins etc. would need to be soldered across as the tap has adhesive on the back which will insulate any over laps. Use a soldering iron and solder at the overlap to connect the 2 tracks.

A. Hi Dale Thank you for your question. The backing will not conduct, only the track will.


Fiddly but it works

Laying out non-straight patterns is tricky unless you don't mind kinks. Getting it perfectly flat is also tricky, and the edge can look a bit rough. Cleaning: a pencil rubber will bring up a shine. Soldering: heatsink it between two pairs of big pliers, expose a short section, work fast, extra flux helps. The adhesive survives this just fine. Continuity: overlapping tracks have kO and variable resistance due to adhesive between. This improves greatly if dimpled with a knife tip, haven't tried it for carrying power. Slugs and snails: they clearly don't like crossing the copper surface, but 5 - 10mm width won't actually stop them. Price: cheaper than any alternative I found on Rapid 2013-02.
