daveq Posted January 26, 2004 Report Share Posted January 26, 2004 I ran across this topic while searching for info on neck finishing : Pocket Template I personally have not had any problems with using it without using tape (the stewmac template). I used to make my own pocket templates but I prefer using the stewmac template now. Is the issue of the tape mainly for using existing necks on a new body? The reason I don't have issues is that I make my own necks and the extra .040" is accounted for by making the neck a bit bigger and sanding it down until it fits into the pocket (plus a bit for finish). It's worked for all (about 9) of the necks that I have built. I have tried using the tape several times and it keeps comming off during routing and that is a really bad thing. So what I am wondering is how many people struggle with the whole tape thing when building their own necks? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
