Great.. It was something that just got me thinking.. Thanks!
Old thread but one of the best. 2 questions:
-Why do you pre nitro your decals? Is this something I can/should do to the F logos I install?
-How did Fender paint their necks? Was the whole heel covered by a "holder or stick" or were the mounted by the truss rod screw and the whole neck painted?
Here are some vids I made recently with my '61 GY stratocaster:
Great looking Strats Gil! You're staying busy huh?
Hello preeb,thank you for your sharing and expertice, and I like the way you deal with some of the cantancorous reponses shows a lot of class and heart.thank you.Question...you seemed to have no problem using Freshly arrived Brazillian fboards with no curing or adjusting time to your build,doesn't that worry you?Thank you again Bill Woolf
The BRRW is pre CITES certified and is very old and dry. No issues whatsoever.
That was fast..thank you
You must need a time machine to answer some of the questions from your old posts, but if you are up for it,back to 2009.......:
Could you tell me how much you reduce the nut end of your radiusing jig to attain the even edge thickness of the fingerboard? This has always baffled me when I radiused boards with a block or a more recently on a CNC...once you cut the taper on the board it MUST be a different thickness at the nut end to the body end.
So I guess that using your trick you are effectively making a compound radius!
That is correct.
When doing the radius the normal way measure the thickness difference and use that delta to drop the nut end swing arm lower (longer arm length).
In your procedure, the fingerboard is already tapered, so the difference in thickness is visible to measure, but radiusing a pre tapered board would need a calculation, I guess.
Best run some tapered test blanks and record the measurement....or always taper before radiusing!! Bingo!
Just saw this thread for the first time and am amazed at your work! Thanks for sharing. Is the Sonoran Desert where you live now? Anywhere near Tucson, Arizona?
