    NO, I don't work for them but damn they sure made aging N scale rails easy.
    There cheap, disposable and the super fine are the perfect size N scale tracks.

    Hobby shops, craft stores, probably some of the big chains as well.

    I took one that had gone black, clipped it to the right length, dropped the stem down a chimney, and now I have a chimney sweep working on my layout. (works best with British style "chimney pots" where there's a couple of pipes sticking up.)

    If you have a friend or relative who is a dentist, ask them to grab the free samples for you from dental conventions.

    I got a lot of free ones that way for hobby use.. Too bad I can't get enough freebies to stock my practice. :D

    We dentists go through them like crazy. It's a one-use deal.. Once it touches someone's tooth (when we use it to apply bonding agent when doing a filling) and did its job, it goes right into the trash can (or biohazard bin if there's blood on it). The cost of those things add up quick..

    Hey LITom,

    I never would have thought that a dental office could create so much trash, until it became my job to throw it into the dumpster. I call the girls upstairs my "trashy women".

    That's ok, they call me the "cellar dweller", or troll.
