    Question Source for N Scale Track Tools / Templates

    I have googled and Bing'd and searched on Trainboard without success and now appeal to those of you with better memories, or better search skills, than I possess.

    A few years ago I purchase some metal track laying tools (straight section of metal (aluminum, I think) edge that fit within N track to get straight flex track, some radius templates, etc. This was a home-based business based in (I think) No California or Oregon. My tools were misplaced during a move so any manufacturer markings are long gone.

    Can anyone point me toward this source?

    Thanks,
    Bill McBride

    I found these items by Ribbonrail on walthers: http://www.walthers.com/exec/search?...rack&start=120

    I've never used anything like it, but it looks promising

    I don't think this is the same thing but I got one of them.

    MLR Flex Track Alignment Tool / Nailing Fixture
    part number 479-5015

    Bill, I see you are right down the road a bit from me in Arnold. PM me if you would like to get together.

    A month or two ago I found some straight and curved track alignment tools that have ends that allow to join them together, but I forgot the company that makes them. Anyone else here find out what company makes those? Pretty sure it's not MLR and definitely not Ribbonrail.

    I think the Op was thinking of http://www.rodneysrrtools.com/ . He had a bunch of custom made tools for N scale. But his domain seems to be vacant right now. Maybe he will come back soon.

    I think Marc had the best idea for the radius templates, and Rodney's Tools seems to have two links floating around. This one worked for me. I do like the fact that he does custom work and my club asked for an order and he took good care of us.

    Yes, it was Rodney's RR Tools.

    I am glad he is still around as I was quite pleased with the templates he made for me.
