Don, maybe he is cutting those little jumpers cause he is worried about getting a short between the stock and point rail? Of course, this now results in a situation known as the "Dead Frog Syndrome". It is not fatal, but has been known to cause cases of extreme anxiety and frustration. Just kidding of course. Hence the Frog Juicer to re-power the frog rails. Why expensive Juicers in this scenario, not sure. Personally I would use the contacts off a motor or Caboose Industries ground throw.
It is this exact scenario that has me using the UniFrogs. Still have to power the frogs with the method of your choosing but no potential issues with that rail shorting thingy. Or......just make sure that frog wire is under the table and then do nothing and see if there is a problem and save some money.
As I am still learning this trade, I thought I would throw this out and see what others think.
