I love this one!
When I originally designed the neck radius/channel cutter jig on paper, I knew that I would need two matching sets of two pieces each of material. The concave pieces will bolt to the router 180 degrees apart, and will match up with the two convex pieces that are mounted at a right angle to the neck's center line. The convex pieces will also serve another purpose. they will be mounted in such a way as to not allow the neck blank holder to shift vertically, but still allow it to be moved laterally. I was thinking I could cut them out with the band saw but decided against it, knowing that they would not be perfect. Since I plan on building a dozen necks or so with this jig, I wanted something hard and smooth. didn't know what I was going to use so I just called them thingies. Since then, I've determined that they will be machined out of 5/4 maple in a single pass using the router. I could call these the "convex/concave maple router guide/anchoring keys used for making a consistent radius" - or - just call them Thingies until I can take a photo - :-)
