Use our laser cut SweepSticks to aid in precisely forming On3 flextrack to a perfect 26" 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!

On3 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 On3 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 - On3 SweepSticks can be used with all types of commercial flextrack.

On3 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 9 sets of SweepSticks to create a complete 26" radius circle. Each set includes 2 10" (304mm) lengths.

  • The end of each SweepStick forms a box joint that is interchangeable with any other On3 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 used this 26in. SweepStick to lay out my layout's minimum radius curves. I use it first for locating the roadbed, then ties, then finally the rail. I use the template to lightly mark the position of the first rail, which is glued down with Pliobond. Then with the template in place I put in spikes, shifting the template as I go to maintain the integrity of the curve. I then glue my rail in place again using the template, then similarly spike 4 per tie. They are very accurate, much better than using a makeshift trammel, which I have used in the past. They fit together nicely for extended curves as well. On freehand curves, I use these to make sure I am laying rail at a larger than my minimum radius.
