Re: Offset Rail Gapping

John
 

I was taught to slide one rail on flex track halfway onto the next piece on a curve to maintain the curve without parallel cuts to avoid kinks. I solder my joints and never gap on a curved section. Is this wrong? It seems like the new thinking is to join the two pieces with joints across from each other but soldering the joints while they are straight and then bending them to the radius you want. Doesn’t my way stabilize the radius and prevent kinks better?
