Do you mean to say that other people that build tracks don't get the accurate fall on their tracks?????????

Some of the slot blokes I know think a spirit level is something to do with their drinking capabilities or their religious beliefs. :alcohol:

 

(wonder if gazza and Teamred are awake yet)?

Ferrodore of course! I will post some pictures tonight of the jigs I have been using for the eliptical routing now that I have worked out how to use photo bucket. These jigs only really work on ribbon style tracks but I suppose that one could be adapted for use on a board style track.
