For sale is a wheel set cleaning set.

This is made up of two soft brass brush cleaners which can be powered from either the track or a transformer 12 v or similar suitable supply.  We now include one extra brush making three in total. This is not a spare but a necessary tool to clean the driven center wheels found on some loco's. This will enable you to hold the powered brushes on the wheels with pick up's with one hand whilst cleaning the center wheel set with the other hand..

The single brush may also be used for gently cleaning ballast from point blades or just cleaning the blade contact area.

Suitable for DC or DCC

This has advantages over other block cleaners as it will not damage the gears. I have found a tenancy to reverse the loco back wards and put too much strain on the gears.
On one end are the brass brushes and the other crocodile clips for easy connection to the track or power supply.

I have found this method of cleaning the wheels so much more gentle and accurate. Other advantages include the working inspection of both gears and wheel pick up's. It is amazing how many related fault's you will find whilst using this simple method. 

Faults to look out for whilst using the cleaner/tester :

1/ Poor electrical pickup to individual wheels.

 Symptom: The individual wheels failing to turn with power brush in contact with the wheel.
 Solution:   Clean,re position or replace the pickup contact blade. These are fragile. 

2/ worn or broken wheel gears.

  Symptom: All wheels turning except the broken or slipping axle with the faulty gear. 
                   Loss of locomotive pulling power in service
  Solution:   Replace the faulty axle, worn planetary gear or primary gear.

Wire colours may vary according to stock available.
