Use our laser cut SweepSticks to aid in precisely forming HO flextrack to a perfect 34" 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 11 sets of SweepSticks to create a complete 34" 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 love these as they helped me size out my return loop along with the 36" sweep sticks for the outer loop. I was able to trace the location of the roadbed and track then use them for both installing hidden flex track and my handlaid portion of the exposed layout.

    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 made hardboard templates and I have laid track with center-lines using a trammel . I'm rebuilding a new layout and after an attempt to lay out some nice curves for long wheelbase locos, I kept running into kinks in my curved trackwork. I purchased several sets of SweepSticks and now, my PRR Q2 4-4-6-4 glides around those curves . Second best choice I ever made. My first was buying Fast Tracks switch jigs.

    I like that you can join them together for a more sweeping curve and that they have provisions for rail spiking. Fast Tracks may be in Canada, but I have never had a problem dealing with them outside the US. The extra time to receive my order and extra shipping cost is minimal - give them a try!

    My sweepSticks arrived today. I quickly glued them together and put them to immediate use checking my curve locations were all correct. I then started laying using the SweepSticks. SweepSticks made laying track super easy. I have used aluminium radius tools on my previous layouts and still do however, SweepSticks are much easier to use with the added bonus of connecting a number of SweepSticks together to help in the design of a layout as well as laying the track. A fantastic product,

    These sticks are fantastic! I have struggled for the last 10 years making curves I wish I would’ve bought these sticks along time ago. Finally my track looks professional.

    Helpful to lay out curves to see what and will fit. Also, great for laying the flex track, which needs to be done soon.
