Post subject:  Fast Track Rail Bender & Frog Helper

Like I say....... Great Tools create Great Products.

As you can see in the photo, the two Fast Tracks tools work like a charm. From the time I rolled the rails to cleaning these 8 #6 Code 70 Curved frogs was 35 minutes.
The parts come out identically each time and makes it much easier to Hand Lay the turnouts.

Only the user can screw up as you see the frog on the far left. And still the part came out like it was suppose to. No damage done..... just another frog for another new Curved #6 Code 70 Wye, maybe?

As you can also see in the photo, I've used the bender a lot. I probably ran some 60 to 70 rails through it already. And the black paint on the Frog Helper cuts down the glare from the semi-polished jig. You can see a better fit this way. Sorry for defacing your tool Tim, maybe it would have looked better if I used a medium gray instead, but the black paint was in arms reach.

Cheers,
