A set of 20 square posts to make a cable barrier system for your custom magracing or slotracing track.
Looks great and helps prevent cars from ending up in the weeds!
Posts are .25" x .25" x .875" tall, like 8" x 8" x 28" wooden posts at 1/32 scale.
Each post has pin .375" long attached to bottom of post for easy installation.
Piano/music wire can be used as cable with posts. Wire diameter of .025" (.6mm) to .032" (.8mm) works fine.
Can also be used with fishing line, or sewing thread, instead of piano wire. Thread size 346 looks good & is plenty strong.
Similar to BP1-11 which has 9 tall posts and 2 short posts.
Strips of 3mm thick Sintra attached to these posts makes excellent, smooth, and very flexible safety barriers for race tracks.
Separate posts from sprue using sharp knife, razor saw, or hacksaw blade.
Paint posts if desired.
Where you want the posts located, drill holes in baseboard of track slightlly larger than diameter of pin, if baseboard is hard like MDF. Make holes slightly smaller, if baseboard is soft like XPS rigid foam insulation board. Space holes about 3" apart.
About 1.75" from the location of the post at each end, start a small screw in the baseboard which will be used to anchor the ends of both cables to the baseboard at each end.
Slide both cables through both holes in all of the posts.
Wrap the end of both cables around one of the screws and draw down the screw as needed.
Put a dab of thick glue in the holes and press the posts into the baseboard.
Wrap the other end of the 2 cables around the other screw and draw down the screw as needed.
Before glue sets, straighten up the posts if needed
When glue is cured, enjoy your cable barrier system that is both attractive and functional.
