Use our laser cut SweepSticks to aid in precisely forming HO flextrack to a perfect 24" 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 8 sets of SweepSticks to create a complete 24" 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.

Purchased a SweepStick for a 20" radius and it was next to perfect. This 24" radius SweepStick had one of the SweepSticks that was warped and would not lay flat, although it was usable. A little quality control problem.

What you've come to expect from Fast Tracks. A highly accurate, easy to use track laying template. I really like that you can join multiple sections together when you need to create long curves. And not a bad price to boot. I have two radii now and will not hesitate to buy more as I need them.
