"Something like these, I made awhile back when I asked about track gauges. Laser cut from 1/8" acrylic"

Yeah, about the same function. I make mine flat so I can set a weight on them to hold the track in place ahead of where I'm spiking or soldering.Since I don't use them on turnouts I don't need to relieve the center and edges, they are just flat rectangles. I usually make them from thicker acrylic sheet ( plexiglass) but I posted a photo in my gallery of one that's just made from some styrene I had handy.There's also a photo showing a weight sitting on it :>) ...DaveB
