Now anyone can build virtually perfect, #6 frog and switch points for turnouts simply and easily - Guaranteed!

With the Fast Tracks PointForm filing jig modelers of all skill levels can construct realistic looking, better performing frog or switch points that can reduce derailments and add a professional look and feel to any layout.

The PointForm works by holding the rail at a precise angle so that points can be filed. Its use is simple, slide the rail into the end marked "Point" to form switch points, or into the end marked "Frog" to form frog points. Tighten the cap screws using the supplied 5/32" Allan wrench and file the rail flush with the edge of the tool and you are done!

Get perfect results every time!

Frog points that are formed with the PointForm tool will produce two symmetrical halves of the frog, making placement of the points into a Fast Tracks assembly fixture very easy; simply slide the two rails forward in the grooves until they meet.

Points constructed with the PointForm tool are ideally suited for constructing points for Fast Tracks constructed trackwork, but can also be used for hand laid trackwork built without a Fast Tracks assembly fixture.

This PointForm filing tool can be used to construct frog and switch points for #6 switches using Code 125 & 148 rail and will work with all scales and gauges up to O. Each PointForm filing jig comes complete with a 5/32" Allen wrench for tightening the clamping screws and will last for thousands of uses.

Constructing turnouts is not new to me, but filing frogs is a cumbersome task not replicated easily until now! The PointForm tool is well made and after a very brief learning curve produces exact replicas of a #6 frog. The biggest thing one has to pay attention too is inserting the rail to the proper depth each time. A nice feature is the ability of the jig to handle a couple of different rail code sizes with the same tool, I use both 125 and 148 on my layout making the cost of the tool that much better by not having to purchase individual point tools. Your copper clad ties have been in my toolbox for a long time now and I suspect the PointForm tool will be as well. The only thing I can add is to do yourself a favor and buy the T handle hex wrench too! To date only frogs have come out of my tool, usually I file the points down using a Panavise but believe I'll get the same results as I do making frogs. I appreciate the online videos and other tools from Fast Tracks such as the downloadable templates. Thank you to Fast Tracks for keeping track building a worthwhile and fun aspect of this great hobby.
