Classic UK Minitrix Models  -  Britannia
Faults
I reckon the type of faults that you can encounter can be broken down into a number of different categories.

Electrical.
Mechanical.
Breakages.
Muck.

Although this isn't a comprehensive set, its the type of things that I came across and the menu on the left refelcts these. Click the buttons to find out more.

Before you start you will need:

  • Good quality screwdriver set.

  • Fine pliers
  • Good quality tweezers
  • A scalpel
  • Multimeter for testing resistance and voltage.
  • 2mm socket driver
  • Magnifying glass
  • Hand lens (10x magnification)
  • Extremely fine emery paper
  • A fine tipped soldering iron and solder
  • Fine electrical wire.
  • A clean work area
  • Small containers to keep the tiny items safe (eg a sewers bobbin box)
