This is a list of non-standard tools used by or created by members of GRVS. Non-standard tools
are those that are available in hobby shops or hardware stores that are not generally used in
model railroading but are found to be useful regardless.
Dental Tools -- Rather than buying a bunch of carving tools for scenery, ask your dentist if he/she has
any old tools about to be thrown out. Many dentists are happy to give them a new home.
NTRAK/TTRAK Module Building Tools -- Walt has created a few tools for laying track on new modules.
||Precisely positions all three tracks from the front edge of an NTrak module |
||Positions the end of the track from the side of a module; if the track laid is too close to the edge,
this jig will also help in trimming the track to specifications |
||Positions the track for a TTrak module. |
||Includes #1 and #2 above, two pieces |
||Combines NTrak and TTrak spacing, #1 and #3 on one tool. |
||Includes #3 and #5, two pieces |
||Measures the gap between modules to choose the perfect connector track. It also measures connector
pieces for a perfect fit. Also available in Slim format |
