Re: Points - the achilles heel

Little progress. Some work left to do - a throw bar under switch points, wires, isolation gaps... Not much, but not easy.

Picture shows my idea of making frog, points and guard rails - they are etched from nickel silver plate.

Re: Points - the achilles heel

Small step forward - milled PCB ties for the switch :)

Re: Points - the achilles heel

Hi everyone.
This is my pre-prototype of #6 switch, milled in modelling wax to verify dimensions.
Designed to be joined with flex using FlexiTrack joiners, with tie spacing and dimensions similar to Eishindo's flex.
Maybe it will work out...
