  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 rea
  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
  6. 1 x 10" remaining. . . . Back orders being taken . . .
  7. Update - just 1 x 10" and 1 x 12" remaining
  8. 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

  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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!
  14. 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
  15. 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 . . .
