Shaping turnout parts
« on: February 16, 2018, 10:56:29 pm »
I had an idea of using my Proxxon bench sander to shape switchblades and the crossing angles.
I figured that If I could dial in the angles with the fence, I wouldn't need to buy fancy jigs for FB rail.

Has anyone tried something like this?

I can't see why that would not work.
Also now given me an idea how to make tapered rail for crossing board joints.
Cheers
Alan

I'm glad I could help.
I also found a video buried away of what might be helpful.

About four min in is the tool.
