Use our laser cut SweepSticks to aid in precisely forming HO flextrack to a perfect 39.5" radius. In addition to holding flextrack at a specific radius, SweepSticks can be used as an aid to track planning. They are great for determining whether the desired radius will actually fit as planned before starting any track laying. No cheating with SweepSticks!

SweepSticks work great for confidently centering the rail onto the wood ties. No more off center track!

HO scale SweepSticks track forming tools are:

  • Precise! - Shape commercial flextrack to you desired radius. Confidently.
  • Inexpensive - Priced to allow a modeler to build a library of sizes.
  • Versatile - All curved and straight HO SweepSticks are interchangeable with each other.
  • Robust - Don't let the wood construction fool you, SweepSticks are cut from stable aircraft grade plywood.
  • Multiple Use - Can be used to form flextrack, plan a layout, or as a tool for hand laying trackwork.
  • Vast - A very large collection of radii are available, including custom sizes.
  • Compatible - HO SweepSticks can be used with all types of commercial flextrack.

HO SweepSticks are precision laser cut from 2mm aircraft grade Baltic Birch plywood. The multiple direction of the wood grain in plywood makes it very stable and ideally suitable for SweepSticks. Each SweepStick set will include two 10" lengths that are glued together to form a single, long piece. Additional lengths and sizes can be added for make a Sweep as long as desired.

Place an order for 13 sets of SweepSticks to create a complete 39.5" radius circle. Each set includes 2 10" (304mm) lengths.

  • The end of each SweepStick forms a box joint that is interchangeable with any other HO SweepStick.
  • Centerline slots are provided for drawing track centerlines onto roadbed.
  • Clearance is provided for spiking if the SweepSticks are to be used for hand laying track. Note: Due to limited clearance, HOn2, HOn3, HOn30, N, Nn3 and Z scales do not have notches for spiking.

For laying out my mainlines, I needed 40", 42 1/2", and 45" radii templates. I don't know whether anyone else makes 40" and 45" sizes, but I'm pretty sure no one else makes 42 1/2" templates. (I think it was a special order - - but Fast Tracks seems to go to great lengths to give us track builders whatever we think we need.) I was able to lay out smooth curves in my trackwork (I'd already used a compass-like tool to lay out the roadbed, but getting the flextrack j-u-s-t r-i-g-h-t required a template - - and Fast Tracks came to the rescue. So - - if you need something you don't see here in the sweepsticks section, maybe if you ask, they'll still make it for you. I've not been more pleased with any other supplier for my modeling needs. Everything works as advertised, their supporting DVD and handbook are excellent, and with the other tools they offer, anyone can build reliable turnouts, and even enjoy the experience !
