Use our laser cut SweepSticks to aid in precisely forming HO flextrack to a perfect 22" radius. In addition to holding flextrack at a specific radius, SweepSticks can be used as an aid to track planning. They are great for determining whether the desired radius will fit as planned before starting any track laying. No cheating with SweepSticks!

SweepSticks work great for confidently centering the rail onto the wood ties. No more off-center track!

HO scale SweepSticks track forming tools are:

  • Precise! - Shape commercial flextrack to your desired radius. Confidently.
  • Inexpensive - Priced to allow a modeler to build a library of sizes.
  • Versatile - All curved and straight HO SweepSticks are interchangeable.
  • Robust - Don't let the wood construction fool you, SweepSticks are cut from stable aircraft-grade plywood.
  • Multiple Use - Can be used to form flextrack, plan a layout, or as a tool for hand laying trackwork.
  • Vast - An extensive collection of radii is available, including custom sizes.
  • Compatible - HO SweepSticks can be used with all types of commercial flextrack.

HO SweepSticks are precision laser cut from 2mm aircraft grade Baltic Birch plywood. The multiple directions of the wood grain in plywood make it very stable and ideally suitable for SweepSticks. Each SweepStick set will include two 10" lengths that can be glued together to form a single, long piece. Additional lengths and sizes can be added to make a Sweep as long as desired.

Place an order for 7 sets of SweepSticks to create a complete 22" radius circle. Each set includes 2 10" (304mm) lengths.

  • The end of each SweepStick forms a box joint that is interchangeable with any other HO SweepStick.
  • Centerline slots are provided for drawing track centerlines onto the roadbed.
  • Clearance is provided for spiking if the SweepSticks are used for hand laying track. Note: Due to limited clearance, HOn2, HOn3, HOn30, N, Nn3, and Z scales do not have notches for spiking.

    Great product. Have used it in a number of instances to not only correctly lay curve radii for HO flex track but also to mark track centerlines on sub roadbed prior to laying homosote trackbed. It also helps to lay out curve easements as well as to mark out curves which have changing radii along their length.

    Excellent product. Received in a timely manner, and was well packaged. The sticks helped immensely. I am using VERY old flex track that is very difficult to work with. The sticks made the job of bending the track sections a breeze. My second purchase of the products. Will buy buy again as the need arises.

    Using these products is very easy. they slip between the rails allowing you to flawlessly form perfect radii with flex track. The access holes laser cut into the Sweep Sticks allow you to easily nail track or spike rails directly. Quite a time saver.

    This is one great product and reduces the time to install track.

    An innovative way to ensure smooth curves when laying flex track or hand laid track. It would be nice to have a template to end a curve in a smooth transition to straight sections.
