Diddo. I can do just about anything with metal and plastic, but wood, well, I can make big pieces into little pieces.......

Nice track though!

Rick, is there a wood shop at your school?
Maybe you could enlist some students to build one...

That is great... I have always wondered how to put in rails for power. I was going to use braid, But this way would be lots cheaper and more durable too. Drag strip first to make sure it works well then a 4 laner...

Sadly, no. They phased it out and beefed up the computer technology lab. I mean, what IS middle school without wood shop and wooden CO2 racing cars and those goofy lamp projects? I weep for the youth of today...

They don't know what they're missing. Sure was interesting seeing that guy run his finger through the bandsaw when he was trying to trim up that piece of framing he had for a project. Ouch! :devil: rr

That's funny. My gr 8 shop teach was missing 2 fingers due to an accident with that very tool. (but he had a sense of humor about it) Made US all a bit more careful for sure. Anyway, slots would be an awesome project for school...surprised it doesn't happen more often.

Maybe you can get those computer geeks to design a computer comtrolled slot car system. I know some colleges have done these sort of projects.

Man, that is an incredible track. I've used that rebar tie wire while doing concrete work before.......but I never would have thought about using it for powering a slot track.
