What are QuickSticks used for?

QuickSticks are single assemblies of laser-cut wood ties that make it easy to complete a switch built with the Fast Tracks assembly fixture tool. When a turnout "skeleton" is built in an assembly fixture, the only ties on it will be a few PC board ties at key locations to keep the turnout in gauge. Wood ties need to be added to complete the turnout. The fastest and easiest way of achieving this is to use our pre-cut QuickSticks.

Pliobond is applied to the webs between the ties of a laser-cut QuickStick

Pliobond is also applied to the base of the rail.

After the adhesive dries a bit, the two pieces are aligned and pressed together.

Once cured, the sides of the laser cut QuickSticks are removed, and the turnout is complete.
