    Measuring capacitors...

    OK...it seems I stumped the search engine with this one, so I'll ask the luthiering populace...starting with a statement... I got a box of caps and resistors at work last year, some caps looking very much like bumblebees. I'd like to take a multimeter to it, but how do I measure microfarads...

    Quart inch squared bearings...

    I have a router, used with a template to rout out a mini-humbucker cavity for a P90...in a kit, by the by... It did a nice job, but the shaft burned out a couple corners of the template and guitar...the guitar is saveable with wood putty, but I could use 1/4" x 1/4" bearings, as is on the...

    Push-pull pots...

I've read some threads where the custom wiring is done to the tone pot and no mention of the volume pot... where does push-pull wiring...

    Plastic cover in switch...

    Hi, kind of new to posting here... I'm putting together an empty Epi Studio with parts I've accrued over the years, didn't want them to go to waste. I had to get a new switch, opted for a GIbson (why not?). Thing is, it's got what looks like a plastic cap under the lever, between the...
