And for those that are wondering, even BTTB pizza cutters will go through fine.

I will definitely be ordering more once they're available.

I have the opportunity to import some items from Michael at Art & Detail. I would like some feedback on what people want, in what quantities before I place an order. If you are interested in specific items let me know...


Due to a lack of interest, I am retracting my offer to supply these items. Thank you to the five of you who expressed an interest. Sorry that I will not be able to deliver on your requests at this time. Please contact Michael at Art & Detail directly to order.

That is a pity Mark, I would like to thank you though for trying to help us out with good quality TT products. I just got some NMRA style TT gauges from Michael and they are excellent. I assumed a product like that would be in great demand but seems I am wrong

Ok I guess it's going to take the garage entrepreneurs to bring something to fruition.
So was it the cost per switch or what guys? Just want to know.


I'm confused: Are we discussing the A&D products from Michael in Germany that Mark was considering distributing here in NA...
or the TT Code 55 switches that sold-out quickly?

SazModel turnouts are still going ahead.

Kits from A&D are not.

Bernd wrote:Nice. One minor problem with a tie strip with alternating connections. I discovered when I was casting my tie strips was when they are bent into a sharp radius the tie strips sort of form a W instead of fanning out nice in a radius. For sharper a sharper radius the tie connectors should all be on one side.

Bernd


Good point, but it also means you need to always install the ties with the same orientation (usually with the connecting strip under the outer rail) so the tie spacing stays consistent, and the ties become slightly closer spaced in a curve. I have also seen the connecting strip run down the center of the ties, but when this is done, the strip is considerably thinner in height than the ties, so that it will be hidden by the ballast.

The center connected type is the best system I've seen, however; I would be charging a lot more to have the webbing sections rastered down. On the topic of charging more, my manufacturer made the pattern for the flex strips from his exsisting, so to have him redesign the pattern would also be a cost increase for you, the customer.

Additionally, the zig-zag webbing pattern has been used for years in all kinds of flex track. The "W" pattern that forms in curves is hardly noticable if installed with a bit of care.

Just want to clarify: The flex strips are not a Clover House Product. They are a SazModel exclusive.
