  1. A quick hop skip and a jump and it's looking like a guitar:
  2. That is a great system Cheers - just one $18 piece of Alu + 1 router bit + $4 roll of tape + router table = perfect radius I also tackled the elephant in the room (the truss rod routing . . ) and it came out pretty well - it is about a mm off centre but I aren't complaining it's totally straight - now I just need to die the thread down the rod and cut it to size (along with fitting it correctly! You can see the jig(!) I used in the background of the pic - nothing special merely a piece of wood thicknessed and clamped to the in feed side of my fence, this ensured the rear of the neck was level with the widest point of the headstock, then just slide it over, it was real easy in the end!
  3. Chopped of the top and bottom - along with a shot of the finish produced by the radius bit: A pretty perfect radius - I think you'll agree: The finish - it shouldn't take more than a few minutes with some 400 grit to shine up: Now to sort out the truss rod routing!
  4. Well I radiused the fretboard tonight . . . using one of my radiusing router bit . . . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7iyOj_zY-k%26
  5. Well it's been a while - some progress: The top has been carved - I started out not really intending to do a fully carved top - but hey - here we are! All came out very well - done via the combination of router steps and an angle grinder with sanding disk: Neck - hmm yes I kind of got carried away and shaped the whole thing up without doing the truss rod - hey it's been a while since I made a neck! Never mind I'll manufacture a jig to do it once I have the rod: The scarf joint came out excellently even if I say it myself, the line is barely visible, will be interesting to see how visible it is after shaping..
  6. Update - just 1 x 10" and 1 x 12" remaining: 10": http://www.ebay.com/itm/181665488138?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 12" http://www.ebay.com/itm/181665491167?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  7. 10" Guitar Fretboard Router Radiusing Bit 12" Guitar Fretboard Router Radiusing Bit 16" Guitar Fretboard Router Radiusing Bit Cheers
  8. So the Radius bits - what can I say - they are pretty darn fantastic! A demo of the said bits Currently have 1 x 10", 2 x 12" and 2 x 16" available - any other radius will need be a custom order.
  9. Howdy all, Just listed a few new things on Ebay - so if anyone on here as the Steel City 40200H or 40300H or Carbatec or Hafco spiral head thicknessers you might want to take a look at: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/181658506085?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/181658506640?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 The radiusing bits will appear soon
  10. Hurrah! Router Radiusing bits are back baby! Ok so I have received my samples + 1's - the + 1's will be up for grabs as soon as I've completed the testing. So looking through the post from a few years back I was selling these for $49 + P&P, which albeit a relatively reasonable price when you look at the price of router bits it wasn't a GREAT price, sooooo this time I am looking for merely $25 + P&P for a single bit and a special of $69 + P&P for a set of 3! A set: A close up of the 10": The bits are K01 carbide for use with all extra hardwoods. I will be performing a few tests in the next few days and posting videos. Also if you want any crazy kind if one of radius I can fulfil those wishes - however there WILL be delays in getting them produced as I have to produce the CAD and the manufacturer has to do there CAD and then produced etc etc. The manufacturer has produced me some amazing carbide inserts blades for my spiral Accu-head thicknesser - which I will also be selling at far cheaper prices than the like of Steel City (US), Highland woodworking (US), Carbatec (AUS) and Machinery House (AUS) sell them for! Plus also I am selecting the carbide grade to be used rather than getting whatever carbide grade they are selling. Here is a quick sample pic (K04 carbide here - not that you can tell by looking at it obviously!):
  11. Actually just over 1.5" - 40mm - only 2mm narrower than the standard nut but it makes a big difference. My previous single cut I actually use a 40mm nut on a 25" scale and it plays great, this is just 21" scale so it'll be a fun little guitar to play and playable by adults and my son!
  12. So tonight has been a night of more template making - so of course 3D printing! Ok so as mentioned I did the CAD for this 85% scale LP previously so now it been a case of turning those CAD drawings into 3D CAD and printing them - so the neck . .. as you can see due to the length I had to print it in two pieces (3 if you include the headstock): However this is no big deal with a 3D printer you merely print some hole and some dowels to hold it together: A bit of super glue to hold it together and a bit of routing and voila: Chocks under it to check scale length and things are all centred and aligned: Hey a headless LP: That's all for now - the 3D printer is currently creating the headstock template - it's so nice to be able to print the CAD diagrams in a solid form rather that struggling with CAD diagrams stuck on bits of wood!
  13. The winder mech works great on the table! I can't recall what people were complaining about on the old version but I know when I bought mine (online) I triple checked that I was getting the new version . . .
