    NBD! First Harley!

    As title states, First Harley :thumb: I've got a two bulging disks in my low back, so what do I do? Drive by a Harley that catches my eye and buy it. But it screamed "buy me"!! Loved the 4 mile ride home, other than killing my back. Now I get to just look at it in the garage until I get my...

    Buffing machine (scratch built)

    Ok, I had a couple other threads related to this. One was me bitching/whining about wet sanding and drill buffing. The other was about requesting info about the size of the pulley on the arbor to keep the wheels at the proper speed. I could have put this in with the 2nd thread, but though...

    buffing arbor pulley size?

    To go along with my other thread ranting about the sanding and buffing process, I asked about pulling the trigger on a stewmac set up. Well I got to digging around the shop and I already have everything I need to build one basically. I've got 1" pillow blocks, a 1725 3/4 hp motor. I have a...

    Sanding and Buffing Rant!!!

    Hate it! Simple as that….. I know I have a negative attitude going into it and that doesn't help. Seems like I just chase my tail. I know I tend to rush this stage and try as I may can't help it. I am the most patient man on earth on every other aspect of building guitars, but this drives...

    question for members who are cops

    First off, this isn't meant to troll, bait or get anyone pissed off. Just a quick question. I see Alec Baldwin was arrested in NYC for riding his bicycle against traffic. He didn't have ID so they cuffed him and hauled him in to the precinct. He got two summons. One for the bike violation...

    Old Corvette

    Went to a local car show and was surprised to see the car I restored 10 years ago. The guy I did it for put it in his garage and shut the door and never brought it back out. I'd bet it still has the original gas in it when it left my place lol….. Specs: 57 270 horse 283 with the 2x4...

    Woot! New Saw Day!!

    Been needing one for a while. Woodcraft has them on sale till the end of the month for $799. 14" and the riser block is built in so to speak. I'm used to Powermatic and delta and such. Rikon sounds cheesy, and I had my doubts, but the reviews and people I talked to seemed really positive...

    First Laminated neck question

    I'm doing my first laminated neck (3 piece) My first thought was using Hide glue, but don't think I can get the job done with the short open time. Also, worried about ever having to pull the fretboard off with heat way down the road, hopefully that never has to happen. 2nd thought is urea...

    finally bought a glue pot

    As the title states. After 4 years of screwing around with a glass jar in boiling water on the stove, then racing after it reaches temperature to my assembly area with a boiling pot without sloshing water all over the carpet, I finally broke down and bought a glue pot. Used it to glue in a neck...

    I think I have experienced every finish dilema...

    So I'm finishing up a guitar I sprayed out a month ago. I got it all sanded nice and pretty, and started buffing it out. Well, i noticed on the back that there were some scratches still in the finish that I needed to touch up with sandpaper. I usually wet sand with naptha. In the past...
