I have a couple of questions regarding track making before I start with my large ish layout in 4-SF and I hope someone could help answer a few of them?..
1) Does anyone use a Proxxon table saw to cut up plywood (3mm thick) for sleepers? Is it accurate enough? I am a little worried about delamination too, But I did think it might be cheaper to buy some 3mm plywood sheets and make my own sleepers/timbers as I need alot and it would work out cheaper I think.
2) My points are on curves, ranging from 38" curve to like 50"odd, Is it ok to use pre-assembled C&L crossings? as they are quite straight or the pre-made Vee's? Or would I need to custom build all that because they are on a curve? (see pictures below)
3) I have started doing the whole "nudge timbers" in templot and I am wondering if anyone could just have a look to make sure I am doing it right? I have only done the one's on the main running line and the station area.. I didn't touch any that support the important rails and vee's as I know that's abit of a no no! (box file attached)
4) Are there any special chairs I should use for the check chairs for 4-sf? As C&L don't do one's with the 1mm gap
5 (bonus question) How do people go about hiding the dropper wires so that they remain hidden? I'm going with plastic fully functional chairs
