Obtaining a jig for handmade points

Rate this question



I've made my first hand made point in OO using code 100 rail and it works well. I've quite a few more to make for my layout and would like to obtain a jig for filing and soldering the vee such as @Mayner posted a picture of in his thread here:



Or could I maybe make my own jig? Out of a hardwood maybe? Has anyone done this?

I just file the rail in a vice and keep comparing against the plan/drawing. Haven't found it a problem, but with plenty to do, a jig will certainly help.

Yeah that's what I've done too. I need to make about 20 more though! So I'm wondering would a jig hurry things up. Although I have about 4 different point types to make so I would need 4 different jigs so maybe I shouldn't bother going down the road of DIY jigs.
