At the Rickenbacker factory in the 50's , 60's and 70's, there was a cutting machine attached to a motor. Likely a helical planer head somehow modified to be mated to an electric motor. This was the "tool" that cut the ramps on the lower bouts of Rics. Only one person was allowed to use this contraption, and it was Dick Burke. The machine was absolutely lethal.
Isn't that the thing that Stew Mac started selling? :D
