Hi All.    I had figured a way to make copper clad sleepers from PCB before, but, it was a bit rough around the edges.Would some kind modeller tell me the best tool for the job.   Best wishes Kevin

HI Kevin
For cutting for sleepers out of PCB, I usually use a razor saw!  I have seen fellas using tinsnips but you risk fracturing the board itself! The cut with a razor saw will still need a bit of cleaning up but any saw work will.  You could use a paper guillotine but you may prematurely blunt the cutting edge of the blade.

Cheers

Trevor

Hi Trevor    Thank you for your reply. It is so long since I have been into the Railway Room that I forgot that i had purchased not only a razor saw or two, but, also a box of sleeper strips. What a Drongo I am?Best wishes Kevin
