      Robby can get *someone's* split jaws in stainless, at least in code 250. I've been getting mine from him when I buy track.

      Uncle Herms's Track jointers is still on eBay but he has only offered code 332 in brass for some time.  They also sell out very quickly when offered.

      Thanks for the info.  I called Robbie.  Apparently AML makes a clone of the split jaw joiners and Robbie purchased batches and then labeles them for his own brand.

       

      He also sells the AML under the AML line as well.  These are currently out of stock but on order.  I suspect the EBAY seller might also be getting them China when they do a run.

       

      Alas to date he has not produced any stainless ones but he might in the future depending on price.

      For brass or nickel plated check trainli.com esp. for switches and crossovers.  Screws accessable from the top.

      When Split Jaw closed up shop, I stocked up on stainless clamps. I found them on eBay, used and new. Maybe there are still some out there on eBay.

      I guess I missed the memo, what happened to Split Jaw?

      As of this morning RLD still has some of the code 250 clamps, and aluminum clamps in code 332.  Listed on the Closeout page.
