Here is a test track I quickly put together as a proof of concept. I used some 1/2″ MDF I had laying around and some 1/4″ copper tape I bought on amazon.
I already had an old controller and a 1/43 car.
I plan on making a bigger permanent track sometime, so this was just a test see how it would run. I turned out pretty good and easier than I expected to build. I used some pex tubing as a guide for the router as well as a special router base jig that I made to route the second track parallel to the first one.
I also made a copper tape dispenser according to some plan I found online. All in all, this was a cool project and I now know I’m up to a bigger challenge when I’ll be ready.
Thanks for watching!
