As the subject line states...

I don't see the old style (punched) PC board ties on the website anymore. Am I just missing something? Or have you discontinued them and replaced them with the "CopperHead" PC ties?

Thanks...

Jeff

What about the rest of us? You may have answered via direct email to HOn2guy but what about the forum?
I to have the same question.

Fast tracks only offers the Copperhead ties now, they are laser cut and are smoother than the older shear cut ties that they offered in the past, if you want the shear cut style of PCB ties they are available from cloverhouse.com

Hello All,

Here's the essence of the reply sent to Jeff:

"Although there was nothing wrong with the punched PCB ties, they were very labor intensive to manufacture and much less precise than our new product line. The old PCB ties are no longer available."

And to clarify, the new CopperHead ties are cut on our new CNC router not on the laser.

Does anyone still use the tiebreaker to cut the Copperhead ties to size ?

If so, what's the best way to use it?

Thanks

Yes, I just cut ties loose from end tabs and then stick them in just as I used to do.

No real difference in using the Tiebreakes with new ties.
