Use our laser cut SweepSticks to aid in precisely forming HO flextrack to a perfect 30” 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 10 sets of SweepSticks to create a complete 30” 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.

    I recently purchased a number of different radii Sweepsticks from Fast Tracks and I am very pleased with how easy they make laying out curves and easements on my HO scale layout. I would recommend them to anyone looking for an easy, uncomplicated way to layout track on a curve.

    I have purchased almost a dozen different radii Sweepsticks from Fast Tracks and they make laying out curves on my HO scale layout a breeze. I would recommend them to anyone looking for an easy way to form flex track to make a perfect curve.

    I bought two sets this one and a 28 radius set. I used this set to readjust a curve I was having issues with. I slipped the sweep stick into the curve and found a gauge issue so I removed the track nails and reset the curve, this tool works great.

    SweepSticks are very well made. They are very helpful planning track location and helping to properly align switch locations. As track laying commences they do a great job of helping to smoothly install flex track.

    I normally use metal track tools, but needed a bunch that could be used for a helix. These work very well. One thing that amazed me was the constant notifications since the items I needed weren’t in stock. Besides the typical “we got your order” , I received notifications of them being produced, packed, and shipped. Absolutely no worries about my order status.

    A big help for this novice modeler.

    Using the sticks really help out with full size planning, just not to lay track. They would get 5 stars if there was a way to get a half curve piece so that I can just get ninety degrees.

    A great product. I’ve used a number of different sizes in my track planning. They offer a great way to see what will work in a given space as well as a durable alignment tool when the track laying starts.
