Building Manual Brakes

Several years a go. I was shown a car with brakes on it. Then one that was controlled by air. I didn’t want to get into building a air system to have brakes.  In Florida there was a car that had manual brakes. Wow   That’s the way to go.

So I tried to make the brake system like that. It didn’t work. So I started to build my own system.


This was on my car that I built for the NMRA Merit Award.

Several modifications have been made to the braking to improve it.
