Crossing V filing jigs on Ebay

Postby Flymo748 » Mon Aug 23, 2010 6:27 am

Not from me, but someone seems to have discovered a stock of them.

Item #250686062431

"This is a Portsdown Models crossing vee jig for Code 75 bullhead rail and is therefore suitable for all 4mm scale bullhead track (OO, EM and Scalefour). It is designed for the accurate filing and assembly of crossing vees in 4 different angles (1 in 9, 1 in 10, 1 in 11, and 1 in 12). The item is new and unopened

It can also be used for the accurate bending of matching wing rails. The jig is made from hardened steel and comes complete with instructions.

These jigs currently retail at £29 (EM Gauge Society stores)

Please note this jig is for the manufacture of crossing vees for larger radius points & is not to be confused with the standard jig for sharper crossing angles."

There are a total of ten available at £20 each, plus P&P.

I have one (from Finney & Smith, IIRC) and it's been useful, but not what I would describe as essential. If you are modelling a large junction, YMMV...

Beware of Trains - occasional modelling in progress!

thanks for the heads up on that - I guess making my own pointwork is now on the cards for this winter.

Looked and found that he had two left for sale, marked down because of slight surface rust. One left

Very pleased indeed.
