Hello all,



Due to the recent rise in interest we intend to make another production run and I’m posting this as a feeler to see if anyone else is interested in acquiring Datum Precision coupler boxes. The “Datum Precision Coupler Box” was last available recently in December and before that was 8 years prior. If you aren’t familiar with this product, it is a metal box that was developed by Ted Doskaris and is one of the main components to the many Kadee adaptations he has made to his mostly Aristo-Craft locomotives. If you would like more info, he has thoroughly documented them on Greg Elmassian’s website.




Features:

- Applicable for Aristo-Craft: GP40, SD45, Dash-9, RS-3, E8/9 and the RDC for mounting Kadee centers couplers with potential for other applications

Meant for operational use on locos pulling long, heavy trains with commensurate drag

- Non flexing, strong metal box made with 6061 type aluminum, CNC Machined including 2-56 screw thread for lid mounting

- Black anodized finish

- Tighter tolerance restricts up and down coupler wobble to a bare minimum

- Accepts Kadee couplers that include the new “G” scale AAR E type centerset coupler from the 907 Kit

- Accepts Kadee plastic lid and centering springs

- Each set comes with the proper washers required to use either of the Aristo Locomotives listed above. A bracket will need to be fabricated by the installer when installing on the Aristo E8/9



We would be selling the pair for $40, reflecting today's costs, plus shipping. For bulk orders of 30 or more pairs, we can discuss over the phone about bulk pricing.



If you are interested in ordering these metal coupler box pairs, please send me a direct message with your:



- First and last name

- Mailing Address

- Phone number

- Email address

- Quantity of coupler box Pairs
