This tool has been designed for the budget minded modeler. The tool is packaged very economically in an attempt to keep the cost down. The material thickness used in these plates will allow link to link assemblies only, with no determined track sag or specific vehicle in mind. This will be left to the modeler that wants to create his own sag for his project. The ends of the tool allow for track wrap forming simulating drives and idlers. This tool may helpful in loading and pining the metal tracks together. And also useful in supplementing the track build by allowing the modeler to prep-build straight track runs and place them over their form tools.
