yep - these are custom orders - they are small enough he just tacks them on to a larger job and charges me a small amount. This one was $30 and the headstock one he said is around $40.

Cheers Peter.

sectorix - yeah - it's still going. I'm getting a bunch of them made up and should have them pretty soon. I will add some pics to this thread when I get them.

Cheers Peter.

Rather than loading down Shad's thread, I figured I'd bump this one instead!

Here's a neck carving buck that I put together this morning:

Curved rails for doing a fender style truss rod route.


Not really a jig but I use my radial arm saw thickness sander for a bunch of stuff.


Bill Scheltema style neck shaping jig.


I press the frets in from the side with half of a sanding block with a bolt mounted in it.
The underside of the block has a groove for the top of the fret and the side of the bolt is filed flat to push on the end of the fret.
I think I stole the idea to use the sanding block from Bill as well.

Josh, that is one fantastic build thread.. I'm feeling compelled to print that as a poster for my shop wall!

Seriously though, let me know if you have objections to me printing it as a poster :)
That would be fine.
It probably wouldn't hurt to include my site url for photo credit.

Thanks Snoop Doug.
Did you spot the 242ti in the background?
Keeping my :fingersx: that I'll have time to finish the MS install this summer.

Some scrapmetal, nuts, bolts and a welder. To radius fingerboards, this saves a lot time with the radius block...Also works for compound radius.
The boards come out almost flawless and need only a little touch-up with the radius beam.
Not an original idea but for about twenty bucks on material..oh and you need a big belt sander :D

I did but I'm trying to ignore.... I've been getting the itch again. My intern just bought a 244ti.
