GregP Posted June 1, 2005 Report Share Posted June 1, 2005 You go into Lee Valley tools, and they have about a million wonderful things that a guy can buy. Many of them applicable to guitar-craft. However, today I only got very little satisfaction: Do you guys carry Robo-Sander, or something similar? -Sorry, we don't carry electric tools. It's just a specialty sanding drum for your drill press -Never heard of it, but I'll look it up... nope, nothing. Do you carry Saf-T planers? -Never heard of it (describes it) -Nope, nothing like that. How about flap discs? -Whazzits? Flap discs. They're angle grinder attachments. Overlapping flaps of sanding surface. -Not these? Nope. Not a regular flap sander; a flap disc. Nope, not a star sander either. -(looks it up)... Nope, don't have those, either. (sighs) Fine, I'll just take this router bit and one of those table-saw jigs you guys sell, for cutting wood at an angle. -(looks it up) Any idea what it's called? Yeah, it's a 'something' jig and it's for table saws. I don't remember the exact name. -(starts searching with no luck) I KNOW you guys have these, they were in the last catalog. -(looks, looks, and looks some more)... I haven't found it yet, but I think I know what you're talking about. (looks more and more) Aha! It's called a taper jig. Yes, that's the one. I'll take one of those and the router bit. Bah. I previous time, I had gone looking for a combination of bit and bearing that would accomplish the job of routing a binding channel. No luck there, either. This is why I don't always have the easiest tools for the job. Greg Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
