    I was hesitant to buy this because I did not know if it was really necessary but after using it I couldn’t do without it.

    This is an indispensable tool. It only took about 30 seconds to understand how to use the tool. The video is extremely helpful on demonstrating correct technique. They truly have thought of everything needed to make laying your own track a breeze.

    I found this to be a very well made, easy to use tool that gives you a smooth and consistent radius for smooth and flowing track. If you have a lot a rail to bend I would highly recommend this tool.

    Does everything it claims to be. Minor scuffing of the acrylic surface is nothing to worry about. I am using it for code 80 through to code 125, little if any effort is required to push the rail through. A tad expensive, but after using it , well worth the money. You could make your own but at what cost? Thank you Fast Tracks. Phil

    Nice simple design. Well crafted. Easy to use. A must for curving rails that slip right into the jig.

    Rail bender works as advertised. Great product. Allows me to recycle bent flex track rail to hand lay.

    Excellent tool for more than just trackwork. Fine workmanship, smooth bearings, and crisp markings.

    I have been forming curved rail by hand. Hand forming (at least my hand forming) produces inconsistent radius and provides inadequate repeatability. The rail Roller is a very high quality tool which solves both the radius consistency and the repeatability issues. I have successfully completed several N curved code 55 turnouts using components produced with the Rail Roller. (These turnouts were built using the Fast Tracks templates, points, frog and stock rail tools with careful use of Micro Engineering gauge tools and patience.) The Rail Roller tool reduced my build time by at least 50%.

    This device works as designed and does its job very well. It is large enough that it is easy to hold and quite durable. I’ve used it on code 100 rail only so far and it made short work of putting the curve in the stock rail and point rail for the turnout I was building. No more sore fingers for me!

    Very easy to use and really made the job of doing a long curved bridge easy and very smooth. Only drawback is cosmetic scratches were the rail passes through the rollers. These occurred while practicing after viewing the really good video.

    This is a high quality well made tool that has proven to be indispensable for hand laying rail. One of the best tool purchases I’ve ever made.

    Another tool very well made, easy to use and that gives you a consistent radius for the rails. Absolutely necessary for anyone building curved sections.

    Excellent item that performs as it says it does. Curves rail to you specification. A little expensive, but very well made.

    I have built about 30 regular turnouts for my new layout in the last 6 months. I recently bought the rail roller because I kept cutting my thumbs trying to manually put a curve in the rails. This thing works great. Once you find the right setting, it is very repeatable. With a little practice It is also very easy to contol curved and straight areas of the same rail. I have about 30 more turnouts to make, so this is going to be a great help. I just wish I had bought it sooner.

    Very handy tool if you need to produce a repeatable result. I decided to purchase as a friend of mine asked me to build 8 pieces of identical radius for his layout. Curving job done in 30 seconds! The tool is so beautiful that I feel sad using it, because (inevitably) the rail tends to scratch slightly the shiny perspex front surface!

    Expensive but just the tool for curving and un-curving rail.

    Not the cheapest tool to buy, especialy if you live in Europe, however it has been well worth the expense. The tool is so easy to use, (I am using code 82 rail) it bends smooth and accurate curves in seconds. I am so glad I bought it. Thanks Fast Tracks.

    With the RailRoller, it’s a breeze for me to get the radius I need, exactly and uniformly. Recommended.

    Despite no information on the website about Pecco Rails , this tool is very suitable for Pecco’s European code 143 ( flat bottom rail ( IL-7FB ) .

    Great product. First time using with templates. First turnout was slow going but turned out great. I’ve got 14 more to go. I can see that with practice things will get quicker

    Wife asked what I wanted for Christmas, so I got the RailRoller. As mentioned above, It’s a breeze to get the radius required for the turnout you’re building, I plan on using quite a bit in the future.

Bending & Straightening Rail With The Fast Tracks Rail Roller

Bending rail into long smooth curves for curved trackwork can be challenging. The Fast Tracks Rail Roller tool makes this difficult job quick and easy. Plus it can straighten bent rail as well. This video shows you how it works.
