Thanks, a great idea. It will make a good addition to the workbench.

I got mine from Lidl, though they seem to have increased the price (when they are available) when I google them. Next week Lidl have the bigger one with a horizontal belt as well as a vertical disc
As I said I use these to rough out the angles on 7 mm rail, then use a sharp 10" file I find the smooth works better than a 2nd cut. For switch rails the backs can be roughed out, but the heads on the inside are filed to shape

These machines have many other uses even for DIY etc

Back to the turnouts, I would use Templot plans which copy the prototype rather than a non prototypical turnout based on a radii.

Gauge 1 is a gauge too far for me, but I would love to have a go at one and Southend is not too far away.
