After spending some time becoming great friends with the tablesaw and router, the track pads/treads are done. I made 124 of them, so I have a few extras.
Now I am working on the inner track guide blocks that will be in center of the track, and run between the bogie wheels, keeping the tracks from coming off. I am making them out of 3/4″ UHMW, and am cutting them 1-5/8″ wide (slightly less than the distance between the bogie wheels).
I then have to router the corners off so the bogies wheels will want to slide back into alignment, rather than hop over the guide blocks.
Now I just need to finish routing the rest of the strips, then make at least 120 slices off of these strips.
