New Track Bender for Code 250 / 332 from Massoth

A while ago, Massoth posted some teasers of a new product on their Facebook page. They showed a CNC machine working on some solid pieces of metal, so I thought the product had to be track related. I did some digging, and found that the ‘old’ version of their track bending device was out of stock. And then I found an article number for a new version of their popular track bender.

The new track bender looks quite different from the previous one, but seems to offer the same features. The track bender is capable of bending code 250 and 332 rails.
