Re: My new rail bender

I like the lever adjustment, looks like very fine adjustment would be possible.

Re: My new rail bender

Makinsmoke, a little extra tractive effort couldn't hurt, it's a very positive feed. I was a bit concerned that the smooth rollers on the smooth rail would slip, but it doesn't seem to. I have no way to knurl the rollers for more grip.

Re: My new rail bender

Thanks guys! Thought about a power solution, I don't think I have the parts to do it, and I'm not likely to lose digits with a hand crank. Simple is good, and I don't need batteries or extension cords.

My new rail bender

This past November I bought nearly 800 feet of used rail for a pretty decent price. Very little of it was curved, most was straight sections, and unfortunately most of my proposed layout is nothing but curved. And the radius is going to be 30' , so I figured that a rail bender was a necessity to kee...

Re: Odds and ends from ODF

I had a request from someone for a couple of flying vee yard limits, and had to cast them because all the ones I had ready were sold. So, I cast them, and because the vee is on the same matchplate as my PRR "hatchet" yard limits, I now have 2 of those for sale. For those who don't know what those ar...
