NMRA roller gauges
« on: March 09, 2020, 09:21:44 PM »
I have learned that n brass are unable to supply brass roller/button track gauges right now, I am having trouble finding some for NMRA N scale fine code 40 and 55.

Are there any other suppliers?

DCC Concepts do a code 55 one. I know of people whoíve used them for code 40, but itíll obviously be a bit of a sloppy fit.

Micro Engineering makes N scale 3 Point Track Gauges for code 55 and code 40 rail.

http://www.microengineering.com/products_ta.htm

These are also available through the "Fast Tracks" web page.
 
https://www.handlaidtrack.com/42-110

Both of these companies are in the USA, so please be sure to read their shipping policies before placing an order.

The Micro Engineering Web site does indicate a shop in the UK

If I recall, like virtually North American retailers their postage isnít particularly viable for international orders, and I donít think NGTrains do the gauges, although Iíve bought ME rail from them.

Finally went the fast tracks route.  Post is not as bad as I remember for small things, but you do have to order enough to make it worthwhile.

I'm not ready to lathe stuff yet, so wonder if 9mm brass rod could work as a button gauge?
