Use our laser cut SweepSticks to aid in precisely forming HO flextrack to a perfect 36" 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 12 sets of SweepSticks to create a complete 36" 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 34" sweep sticks for the inner 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.

    Love this product and the other curved Sweep Sticks. Really helpful in laying curves that will be constant and true. Coupled with the spacers easy product to lay parallel curves. Mfg has formula that will tell you how many sticks are needed for a full circle so you can figure out how many you would need if want for a full 90 or 180 degree. Great product

    I've used many of Fast Tracks products, and not found a clunker in the bunch. All very well designed, and extremely useful. In building my layout, the thing I most dreaded was building turnouts/switches; to my surprise, it's now my most enjoyable and satisfying activity in creating my dream layout (who'd a thought !). Thank you Fast Tracks !

    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,
