    I don;t know but would something like this work for you. Try to use them by filing down or cutting off the pointy Axles, Then piling them up by a junk yard, back of the engine house, or then as a flat car load to a smelter. See yaRon

    I too have several hundred of the so called pizza cutters and have not found a use for them, but refuse to toss them out.Perhaps when I have my layout set back up I will use some of them as detail around the yard.

    Maybe you could pull the axles, and use them as bases for something...Last resort; use 'em to cut pizza's.

    Sounds like I'm not the only one who hates tossing model parts. I'm not going to keep a bunch of them, so out they go.

    To send them to Joe over at Micro-Trains, and hang the big recycling guilt flag over his head.That said, I have several 'spares', and recently replaced some vintage rolling-stock's wheels with MT Pizza Cutters (MTPCs) to allow me to run them. Eventually I need about 2000 replacement axles, and most of those will be old MTPCs.I might just go through with it. he he he...DennisEngland

    Dennis , don't feel bad , I did what you are talking about with Atlas metal wheels for MT trucks. Got them all replaced and ran a few trains to find them toooo noisey for me, and took'em all back off and put on all low pros and 1 axle of all my cars has a MT restraining spring. That way I am able to switch on a 1 to 2 % grade with no problems.Mike"Mind your own business , and you won't be minding mine" HANK WILLIAMSMike & Robin at www.fiferhobby.com
