Frequently Asked Questions
With simple basic tools – a Phillips-head screwdriver a 7/16″ wrench and a hammer – you will be able to assemble your benchwork with ease. Pre-drilled bolt holes and pilot holes for screws are provided on each piece. Once your bench is together, the wires and cables for your track can be easily strung through the pre-drilled matching holes in the Cross Braces. Roadbed may be fastened directly to the Benchwork grid, or you may choose to add a surface of some sort for track support, such as 3/8”plywood or Homosote board using 1”or 1 ¼”drywall screws to attach it to the benchwork.
Section-to-Section Assembly: Carriage bolts are provided in the hardware packs to bolt your assembled Sections together. Pre-drilled 1/4″ holes are spaced every 4″ on each Side Rail and Cross Brace so that Sections can be connected side to side or end to end. If you are attaching two Sections where legs are placed, you will need longer carriage bolts. Please ask.
