I have had a few reports of one vendor using anothers pix in emails & pms from a whole nother vendors site to sell their product & this info came from the other side of the world
I'd love to see some inlays made of this stuff if they were much less that AVH or Retrospec.
Don't worry a price war is coming hold on to your hat
They were used for demonstrational purposes only. Moreover, the vendor in question broke no MLP rules.
If he wants, he can open up a copyright law suit, but that will cost him a hell of a lot more than the few hundred pounds said vendor will make from selling inlays in the UK -- a market he has no dealers in one might add.
However, it won't happen again boss.
Got your inlays ? now all you need to do is cut them with no BS.
so has anybody installed replacement inlays in a late 90's historic? the ones with Mother of Toilet seat inlays?
I'd like to know how this differs from the newer inlays which I've replaced before.
Are the late 90's inlays harder to remove? do they shatter etc?
I've removed toilet seat inlays. As long as you warm them up first with a hairdryer or whatever, they come out just as easily as the others. You need to make the corners more pointy in the inlay routes though if you want to use HM/DJ inlays.
Ok, so I am looking to make a custom fretboard and am just starting. I cut some shapes out of MOP, but the only saw I had in my jewlers saw was an extra fine one. I noticed that they make different sizes, is that to cut faster or slower? Kinda a dumb question to someone who has been doing it for a while, but it took me like 2 hours to cut a simple shape.
You can use an aggressive blade most of the way around a trapezoid.
Be sure to keep the blade lubricated. The finer blades are for scrolling.
Sorry for the reply to an older post but just a real quick observation and question....
I'm not the guy buying the stuff...but apparently the material Delmar Products is selling IS indeed Italian and is FOB Berlin.
400lbs @ ~$33.50lb = $13,400...that is one hell of an investment....but after the first sheet of material I imagine its pure profit....anyone know where to source it in smaller batches (ie way less than 400lbs)?
I discovered this last year and very quickly decided that I would let somebody else make that investment.
Less than 400 lbs?
Try calling the people that have made the investment, see if you could buy sheets and cut it yourself.
Oh, it takes more than the 1st sheet before you turn a profit.
Getting machine time at the laser cutter is gonna run a few bucks too.
I figured a CNC could do the job....I thought a laser would be dangerous.. isn't that stuff really flammable? Not too familiar with it or laser cutting for that matter.
and OK....2 sheets should cover the initial investment
@~$99 a set for inlays (those sheets are huge and judging by what was cut out in the above shot you could get a lot out of one sheet...I would guess)...anyway thanks for the response.
I wish I could just buy a half dozen sheets of this.
Honestly, I'd much rather use this than real MOP for my inlays.
I had a look back at it and you are not too far off. Maybe I should have listened to my wife and placed that order.
If you mean a cnc router (both laser and router are cnc)
A cnc router would give you more waste and take longer to cut. Time= $$.
I know that DJ has them laser cut. I don't know what special precautions are taken to prevent a blaze.
Hey folks, I'm on the hunt for replacement MOP inlay for my custom BB, specifically fret# 17 (for 19 & 21), need like six or eight pieces.
If you have any or know someone, please pm me?!
Appreciate the help guys!
found some at Grizzly.com
Whats the best way to do the name inlay in the holy veneer,, are their people or companies that will make custom Celluloid inlays like in your name to put on the headstock on a build?
