yeah i have no time to start nickle and dimeing things on fleabay. Its total buyers remorse.
i don't want to turn this into a for sale thread either.
I had a bad experience once with a face to face sell on craigslist, so i mean a thrift store or a donation sounds really good, but if i can make a few bucks hey that would be cool too.
We need a contest for the best use for or project using unwanted
9" r turns, loops, x-overs, whatever. Seems any straight could become some sort of shelf... Maybe curves for brackets? A circle of 4 for a 9" pie trivet? Hipster wall decor? Somebody must've come up with something?
I've actually been using broken track to make dioramas.
i'm working on another one now.
Its Tyco Speedway track, pre-1971 track, all the good stuff I'm keeping so its terminal track 9" and 9" curves. i got quite a few gems in the lot so it was worth it. Its the track that made of glass you look at it wrong and you snap the locks off.
it should the only issue maybe is the guide pin, if you have a deep one it will rub the bottom of the slot.
if you have the 2 sided guide with the fin on one side and the pin on the other then just flip it around to use the pin, or you can shave down the fin.
some early AFX have a shallow fin that is wider and shallower, later on they changed to a deeper fin.
if the pin was changed out for a new one then its the deeper style.
you need to shave about 1mm off the deeper fin then check to see if its rubbing, this is just if you use tyco track, or the early AFX model motoring track.
