Hi Guys, As I know that there are quite a few of us on here who enjoy the track building part of the hobby, I thought I might share with you my latest aid to track and turnout building. There has been much discussion in the past of the merits of using a gauge of 31.5mm through the knuckle and vee part of turnouts, the main benefit being a much smoother transition across the vee with no wheel drop. I personally have been after a set of roller gauges set to 31.5mm for a while now and to my knowledge there were none on the market. I did not want to try and turn some up myself as my 1947 lathe has a bit to much play in the table for the precision needed. So I was over joyed to find Debs of this parish had decided to turn some up along with two other gauges I had not seen before . As you can see from the photos below they are turned out of brass so at least they will not go rusty like my 32mm rollers and also have been given a nice polished finish, the grooves that holds the rail head nice and firmly have a tolerance of -/+ 00.02mm. The bottom one is the standard roller gauge with one end slightly milled so you can still use it right up tight to an adjoining rail, the middle gauge is hopefully going to come in very handy to me in the near future being that I have plans for a roundy/roundy double track layout. Hopefully the picture is fairly self explanatory and here's another close up of what it's uses are The top two stainless steel plates are made to a thickness of 1.5mm which can come in handy for long check rails, etc. Also I forgot to mention that the flangeways are also set at 1.5mm on the roller gauges as well. Just the usual disclaimer to say not related in anyway (although that would be nice , stop it !!) And I am sure they will be getting a lot of use in the near future. ATB, Martyn.
