@Ferris If the board is MDF, all you need to cut grooves is a sharp blade. A Stanley knife or similar is ideal. All you need to do is, (carefully), cut into the MDF at an angle, then cut another angled line so that you are creating a 'v' shape. I have used this method on Averingcliffe when I did not want to take a wire underneath the baseboard.  :thumbsup:

Agreed.  I cut a channel for 4 wires in my chipboard roadbed last night using just a modelling knife and a straight edge, so MDF would be a walk in the park.



I would have used a chisel, but couldn't find the blighter :veryangry:

That's no problem - when you don't want it, it'll always be in the way  ;)

OK, I'm going to hark back to the problem I have with this, and probably make myself very unpopular in the process.

There is track hanging over the edge of the baseboard, at each end. I do not understand why you try to squeeze a layout onto a board when it obviously does not fit?  :hmmm:

Thanks, Mike. Having looked again, you're correct. It fooled me! Still too close to the edge for my tastes, though. But I withdraw my comment about the track hanging over the edge!  :thumbsup:
