These are regular PLA prints with a blast of grey primer. They represent wide clips for turnouts on 12" timbers. The timbers are very thin - only three 0.15 mm layers. I do that just to speed up the prints as I'm only really interested in the clips at the moment but it might be possible to glue thin printed timbers with clips on plywood or other timbers.

I have re-measured the code 82 with possibly a better tool and comes out at 0.99mm, as regards the foot, not easy to measure but seems to be 0.33mm

Hi Stephen,

Is that Peco Code 82?
Is 0.99mm the width of the rail head?

The Proto87 Code 70 rail I'm using is:

.0725" tall (Code 72.5)
Base width 0.0681" (1.73mm)
Base height 0.38mm approximately
Head width 0.0337" (0.86mm)

I used a micrometer for the measurements in inches. Based on the rails I have the widths are maxima.

Andy
