MICRO GLUE AND SOLDER APPLICATION SYRINGE SYSTEM:
We offer multi-purpose disposable Plastic Disposable Syringes, to fit Exchangeable Needles and Re-sealing Caps, in 3 cc or 10 CC sizes, in packs of 3.
We supply short (0.5") stainless steel micro needles in 0.008" and 0.020" ID, in packs of 5.
We supply syringe re-sealing caps in packs of 10.
A Sample Pack of a 3 cc syringe, one of each needle size and a re-sealing cap.
The 3 cc size, in conjunction with a 0.008" ID needle is particularly suitable for short-term storage and dispensing of ACC gel adhesive. If left with a glue bead on the needle tip, then placed in a zip-lock plastic bag and refrigerated, will usually keep workable for several days, up to two weeks. Removing the bead, usually re-activates the same needle. Still blocked needles can be frequently be dipped in acetone to dissolve the solidified tip, or just replaced.
The 0.020" ID Needle size is ideal for dispensing of 50% MEK Diluted Contact Adhesive or our Ultra Fine Solder Paste. Bagging and refrigeration as above, will also keep the solder paste usable several weeks. MEK diluted adhesives will only keep a few days, as the MEK will gradually dissolve the syringe plasttic.
Our Solder Paste is the extremely fine grained product as used in industry for modern surface mount PCB electronic components. It is a lead-free formula using water clean up flux, for long and dependable joint lifetimes.
We supply the paste in re-sealable disposable syringes, containing at least 15 gm (3cc) of paste., which can be used as is, to load the pads of our Frog Assembly Fixture., or dispensed with a needle as above.
Stainless Micro-dispensing Needles for the syringes are available separately, if required for other track or general uses.

SINGLE TIE, TIE PLATE GAUGE/POSITIONING TOOL:
This small, simplified tool is intended for those modelers who wish to initially just try out, or lay a small number of, our Ultimate Tie Plates, without first committing to the purchase of a full Switch-Works Track and Turnout building System.
The tool consists of two steel tie sized plates, sandwiched with a spacer in between holding two 1/32" steel wire punches and a separate piece of 1/32” steel rod. It works by allowing the user to punch two 1/32” shallow location holes in each tie, at exactly the right distance apart to set the track gauge correctly. Tie plates can then be positioned (and glued) by dropping each one down the 1/32”guiding rod, which is temporarily placed in the location holes.
A further feature, allows the tool to be placed on one already placed and laid rail, and punch the holes to position the tie plates for the second rail.
