Fast Tracks #10 Turnout Needed

I am in need of a Fast Tracks #10 LEFT HAND straight turnout.  Just one.  If anyone has one of their assembly fixtures and is willing to make one for me I would be willing to provide reasonable compensation.  Please let me know if interested.

Any reason it has to be built from a Fast Tracks jig?  I just build 'em on top of printed diagrams (Fast Tracks, Proto87 & scaled down prototype drawings)..with improvements to the closure points, throwbars & extra PCB ties where I think they're needed....

I might be interested in a trade if you've got a Centralia Car Shops (Intermountain) "Imperial" sleeper in UP yellow & gray...or an extra couple of Kato Broadway Ltd 10-6 "Rapids" series sleepers you'd be willing to part with...  :D

Cheerio!

Sorry Bob, I have no passenger equipment of any kind, except for some Budd RDC's, but thanks for the offer.  The main reasons for mentioning the Fast Tracks jigs are the ease of construction and no need to see where the turnout will be mounted. They all come out the same.   I know I wouldn't want to try hand-bombing one :scared:

Doug,
Not knowing your specific circumstances, I happen to have a couple of leftover curved lefts, if case that might work for you. If not, Bob's right, with your skills, it shouldn't really be that hard to hand build one, especially if you only need one. I built some custom fit 10' and 11's before Atlas came out with theirs and I don't consider myself particularly handy with a hot iron.
Just a thought...

Otto, thanks for the offer of the curved #10's but a curved one  won't work.  I would have to attempt to hand build one  as  a last resort but I'm hoping someone will come to m9 rescue first😁.

I bought one a while back from eBay. Can't recall if it's a left or right. I'm planning code 40 now so if no one beats me to it maybe I can help you out. I'm camping until Thursday so I'll let you know then.
