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 70, 83 & 100 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.

I have a #4 PointForm Filing Jig I bought years ago and it has been great and a super help. If you get nothing else from Fast Tracks get these. I was expecting the same product when I ordered the #6 jig, but I was surprised. The quality and look of the new product are super. Well made. Its impressive. They didn't need to improve it. The old one was great, but the quality of the new product is impressive. Well done!!

I purchased the #6 Turnout assembly fixture after handlaying about a dozen turnouts using paper templates. Once I received it, I realized that the PointForm tool would improve the quality of my work immensely. I placed another order for the PointForm tool, and reviewed all the videos. It took about two hours of time over a couple of days, but while those first solder joints aren't as neat as they could be, a truck rolls smoothly through the very first turnout I created, without requiring any tuning of the turnout. I highly recommend buying both the Assembly Fixture and PointForm at the same time! Making turnouts is much, much easier using the Assembly Fixture and PointForm than going it alone. 29 more turnouts to go!

Tried a couple "free hand" points; yeah decided to buy the PointForm Jig. This jig saves time, lots of time! Very easy to use and near impossible to make a mistake with it.

This takes the guesswork out of forming points. Simply slide the track into the jig per instructions and file down. Comes out right every time.
