I too would be curious/interested in what you have available. I've been using a magnet board for 20+ years and have hamburgered some of my jigs............

thanks!

You can buy complete fixture sets here:

http://www.airfieldmodels.com/store/...xture_sets.htm

Or, you can learn to make them yourself through this site as well.

It was from this site that I was able to build my own quite a few years back. I love building with them!

I have not printed anything specific for a magnetic board but I could easily print something like what is in the second picture. You would have to add the magnet.

I am putting the final coats of finish on my building jigs today ! Have a Goldberg Extra 300 kit to be assembled on this for the inauguration build.

Oh, almost forgot. I built my set. Even with the tools to construct, it can be a little time consuming, Making of jigs for the parts is the way to go for speedy construction of multiple jig parts.

That’s why I am interested in the jigs. I want to build several kits.

I might have to just build some. I’m thinking of using 1/4” birch plywood.

The only holdup I see using the magnetic jigs is finding a perfectly flat steel plate that doesn't weigh a ton

Itís a piece of 18 gauge metal, painted black and finished with clear coat.

FWIW -- Its actually pretty easy. Get a sheet of 16 gage galvanized steel, whatever length & width you need for your projects, and lay it over any flat building surface - you don't even have to screw it down. I use a closet door I got at a lumber store 20 years ago & lay a 48 inch long by 18 inch wide sheet as my primary, and a smaller one 24 X 10 inches.
