That looks awfully wide to be TT gauge?

Main thing was that fine scale wheels don't derail and it works well in that respect, also I should have filed the blades a bit sharper but it works and the next ones will follow all the advice so thanks a lot


No, that picture is only to explain the thing with the tie length, it is not TT, it is a random picture found by Google.

I'm curious if anybody has ordered up one of the track jigs (aside from those who already had one) since the link was posted and have given it a shot.

I am ordering one this week to take to the National.
I am taking the clinic on building Fast Tracks turnouts. I am already building turnouts with their jigs but figured it would be a good idea to find out what I bad habits I have developed and to learn any new tricks that would help me speed up the process.

I've had my fixture for a little while now but I've been a bit slow in using it. :oops:

Partly procrastinating, partly work and partly I have to many projects on the go at the same time. :boohoo:

I'm about 3/4 of the way to getting my first turnout built. My next step are the switchpoints.

I didn't get the stock rail tool ut I think I will order one soon. It was a bit tedious trying to file the base on the code 55 rail.

I also found it a bit of a pain cutting the pcb ties to the proper length. I've been thinking that I could get the HO tie breaker tool and add some shims and spacers to accomodate the smaller TT scale ties. That would make that part easier and faster.

I could also 'make' my own tie breaker but that would be yet another project on top of the other projects. :crazy:

FYI, Fast Tracks has added a #8 turnout jig. You can get to it by clicking on the banner add that now appears on this site.

Great news! It also looks like they have the Quick Sticks and the Copper Head ties in TT as well.
