Use our laser cut SweepSticks to aid in precisely forming HO flextrack to a perfect 20” 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 20” 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.

    Excellent product for track planning and laying flex track on curves. I Have few different radius’s now and love them.

    Another well made product that lets you install rail to the curve you purchased it for.

    It is exactly what your web page stated. Very happy with. Worked well and made layout much more accurate. Glued together with just Elmer’s glue. Shipping was fast and packaged well. Thaonks Jon

    Helped my very much in getting radius of the curve I needed to be spot on. Very well made product. very happy.

    I ordered four sets — radii of 18, 20, 22 and 24 inches — for my new HO-scale layout built on three 4′ by 8′ boards in a J shape. They are working great for transferring my computer-generated plan to a real-life layout, making sure I haven’t designed any flex-track kinks into my curves, which are tight because I’m modeling a branch line/logging railroad.

    Wanted to see how a 20″ radius semi-circle or sweeping curves would fit on several sections of my layout. I like the product and have now ordered the 18″ radius. I will be using the product to lay flex-track and it should be very useful.
