Use our laser cut SweepSticks to aid in precisely forming HO flextrack to a perfect 32.5" 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 11 sets of SweepSticks to create a complete 32.5" 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.

i don't have the talent to lay down a smooth curve "by hand;" the tighter the radii, the tougher the job. Perfectly drawn or burned-in centerlines are necessary but not sufficient. Long freight cars-- gondolas & passenger cars-- amplify slight curve distortions as their overhangs "dance" back & forth. Enter sweepsticks. I depend on them to lay near-perfect curves and by extension, high-quality easements. I fit the sweepsticks pieces together but I don't glue them; they work well just toothed together & offer flexibility to employ them in varying lengths over & over. I even cut them into partial lengths to suit specific installations. I always order more than I need to have pieces to customize like this. Recently I bought a supply of 32.5"R to re-lay a very visible curve that had been in place for several years but never looked right. When the sweepsticks arrived, I spent about two hours from opening the package to achieving my result: a fine curve. Fast Tracks got the order to me in something less than 2 weeks. During the "wait," they kept me apprised of progress with a stream of emails, maybe not necessary, but much appreciated.
