    Slot car repairs and servicing. What is a Full Recondition?

    slot car repairs and servicing

    First we clean your armatures in the Ultra-Sonic Cleaner. We use a chemical that does not harm the epoxy, insulation, or any of the armature components. Next, your arms are scrubbed under clean water to remove anything that the ultrasonic didn’t loosen. Your armatures are then spin dried and the shafts are stripped of solder and the stacks are lightly polished.

    Time to cut the commutator. We have a custom made production machine that keeps an extremely close tolerance for roundness. The next major step is to balance the arm. Our spec is lower than anyone we know in the business. We spend the time, have the newest electroninc equipment and of course over 14 years experience. You know who is doing the work – it is me!

    We have a high capacity Magnetic Instruments machine. It is the same industrial built equipment that the major cobalt magnet slot car and magnet factories use. We have carefully measured the power to charge the various magnet materials with so the magnets do not loose guass as the field colapses. This machine charges and discharges in milisecond steps to optimize the charge. There is more than clamping or dropping a setup into an inexpensive machine to do the job properly.

    Some dye to prevent rusting and a new tube completes the process. Package and Ship your product back to you. We do this work every day so your reconditioning should be done within 24-48 hours of getting here. Our standard freight policy Priority Mail. FedEx services are alos available. FedEx services will be sent signature required. If you want insurance please ask for it. We will not insure automatically – ask for it if you want it.

    Slot Car Business Since 1994

    Slot Car Business

    Hello, and welcome to my web-site. If you don’t know me already PR has been in the Slot Car business since 1994. I started off by bringing Wing Car Racers the same quality and performance that the factory Pro’s and high-end racers I was building for demanded. After a short time I expanded into armature “reconditioning”, cobalt & ceramic magnet zapping. I purchased new equipment with state-of-the-art technology and set the new standard in the armature reconditioning business. I upgraded to the newest electronic balancing equipment from the same high end manufacturer in the balancing world. This new balancing technology clearly makes the job of correcting the imbalance easier to reach lower imbalance levels giving you an even better result than before on a consistent basis.

    I have stack grinding equipment and electronic tools for testing and measuring motor components. I had been Blue-Printing C-Can and D-Can products for Track owners and Distributors for many years. I have done it all. Since starting in 1994 there have been many others come and go. Even now I continue to give the best service and the “Best Balance” that is available anywhere. “If I can’t improve on the armature balance, then there is no charge for that work”. If you need technical help you are welcome to call and get straight answers.

    There is a “Shopping Cart” so you can buy directly from me if you can’t find or get our products locally. I’ve expanded what is offered to other company’s products. Track Owners are welcome to call and start an account.
