CORRECTING & ADJUSTING EARLY TOMALCO ® TURNOUTS
~ Updated Friday, February 06, 2009 ~
As you can see in this photo, the frog flangeways are OK. ( Each is wider than the "check" portion of the gauge.] Because these are castings, this should always remain consistant. As in: If one is "right", they should all be right.
But, as you can see, the back-to-back distance is off by about .020" [0.5mm). This then is where the problem lies.
So before you go off and start filing on the frog, follow the links on these pages to see how we "fixed" ours.
