Wagon axle alignment jigs - is one better than the other?

Postby Mario KESR » Thu Sep 20, 2018 11:03 am

Hello.
I know of two wagon axle alignment jigs (are there others?) , by Bill Bedford and Brassmasters. Is one more useful than the other or is there not much difference?

Regards Mario

I have the Brassmasters one. It's tricky, but not impossible, to get at the axleguards for soldering to a base when the jig is in place. Bill's jig is open at the top for most of its length and I think this is deliberate design to accommodate soldering.

Hello. I went to Scaleforum today (the first time since Leatherhead) and spoke to Paul Willis on the society stand. After our chat I decided to buy the Brassmasters jig.
