Maybe try talking to the brass tubing and getting it into the mood first?  :trollface: :trollface:

What’s wrong with a kiss? Why not start the tubing off with a nice kiss? We don’t have to go leaping straight for the KY like a bull out of the gate...

Gary, just wanted to say thanks for the heads up on the oscillating tool with the straight blade attachment for foam work. So far it's working out great...

Wow!  Manageable foam cut pieces and not foam dust everywhere!  Nice!  And I happen to have one of those tools lying around.

This has got to be the most repeated "new" idea the forum has, :lol:.  I guess it's because it only comes up at the beginning stage of a new layout.

Always makes me think of this -

So how is this done? What rotary blade is this demonstrating, because the result is great. Thanks ahead of time for not flaming me for my ignorance - I went back to find where this was mentioned but couldn't find it.

SIGH - google is your friend - oscillating flush cut blade.

I think this is the first post where I mentioned the tool.  Apologies if it's old news.

There have been variations of this method going back several years.  And while most good ideas here get adopted right away and repeated by many members when the subject comes up by a new member or whatever, for some reason this idea is like reinventing sliced bread when someone shows it.   Just always stands out to me.  Also reminds me how long I've been here.   :P

Thanks Gary, much appreciated. That answered the questions for me.

Jason perception is reality. If a technique is new to me but old to everyone else - it's still new to me and definitely welcome. I would have never seen this technique if not mentioned again. It proves that everything old will always become new again (at least that's the case for me). Appreciate the comments fellas.

Well, when these things are buried in a build thread that not everyone will necessarily see or read all the way through, they don't always get noticed. Plus new people wind their way through here all the time. Gary's thread here was the first time I had seen it and I've been around these forums for quite a few years. Not saying he invented the idea, but more just a shout out for saving me lots of time and aggravation. :)

Very helpful that Gary has taken the time to keep an index of this thread on page 1.

https://www.therailwire.net/forum/index.php?topic=24108.0

Yes there is many gems buried within these 108 pages.

Wow! An index? I haven’t seen page 1 in a long time as, I am sure, like most people I just stab the new button and read. That is a neat addition!
