You may also want to consider other machines for remote linkage mounting:
Builder's in Scale and American Limited both offer machines which seem more
adaptable to longer remote linkages.
There are doubtless others, including just buying the switchmaster type
motors (Torquemaster sells similar motors which are not the original
Hankscraft motors, but look the same. I don't know if they are as good: the
Builder's in Scale website has some unkind words to say, but their product
is the one being copied. I won't get in the middle of that argument).
