Well, I got my first pieces from Shapeways. I have a number of my new designs ordered, but I guess it's fitting that the first one I got was the first I designed.


This is one of my track-laying tool sets in N scale, though some of the parts aren't scale specific They're all designed to be attached to a heavy yardstick.
i was in Lowe's today and theirs were $0.69.

The trammel point attaches to the end of the yardstick and puts the pivot at the "0" point


The pencil/pen holder will handle anything from a golf pencil to a Sharpie, for marking on paper, plywood, or foam.


And the track spacing gauges let you lay out parallel tracks on straight or curved paths.


Now I just have to wait for the rest of my order to get here! Very Happy
