The #6 HO turnout jig looks pricey, but given how much time it could save, could be worth it if you're hand-laying track:I wounder how much that jig in his hands costs. The one he uses to file the points of the rail. I am sure the aluminum one on the table is pretty pricey too.
Good point. Yes that's a problem so I'm thinking of moving them to the outside edge of the yard. I have a few turnouts on the inside of the yard on my mainlines and those ground throws are on the outside edge as well. That seems to work well.Nice looking trackwork CNC ! I've never used manual ground throws myself... Wouldn't the rolling stock get in the way of you switching them ? I'm not sure I'd want to be reaching over my layout to flick one of those, especially after I've had a glass of wine For me its a toss up between the Tortoise or the Bullfrog... Has anyone here tried the Bullfrogs ? How do they work ?
