This has been an overdue jig!

We have an assembly jig for our etched ladders.
We'd have had it out sooner, but Covid delayed manufacturing.

This jig will securely hold the ladder stiles in place while the modeler inserts and glues (or solders) the rungs in place.
There are 3 rung widths provided for on the jig.
The centre slots are for the most common width, 18". Which matches the #353 etched rungs supplied with most Yarmouth Model Works kits
The wider, (top) is for the N&W B-5 20' rung width, and the lower (bottom) is the 15" width seen on the end ladders of many of the ACF built cars.
We are shipping these without the nuts and bolts, just to simplify the mailing process. The modeler will have to supply a couple of 6-32 x 1/2" bolts, washers and wingnuts .
$12.00 plus shipping
Sadly, not quite in time for Xmas
