A war??? Do I need to pic a side?
You are in the middle!
I need to admit, while it takes time to learn it, it is fun to watch how the Sissie machine punches out a frontplate, where all the holes are where they should be (assuming there are no errors in the drawing...)
Making some MOP pudding. Cutting the MOP in a water bath, to avoid any unhealty dust.
Now it is in the acetone bath to get rid of the super glue holding the pieces to some old PCB.
I thought watching paint dry and cure is painful... well watching acetone to disolve the superglue to get the logo off the carrier is worse.... after one night in the acetone bath, still more wait. I am not prying it off, too afraid it will break.
Wow! What a great thread, and such incredible work. Took an age to read through the whole thing, but well worth it. My hat goes off to you sir - such attention to every detail. Makes me wanna go hide my humble guitar building efforts in the closet.
Really love the look of walnut guitars, and these two are no exception. That Wolfgang was stunning. Can't wait to see the Tele finished.
I remember seeing the Formaldehyde caster idea somewhere earlier - how's that going?
Cool stuff, Helmut, even if you have slipped over to the “dark side”.
Thanks for the kind words. Stop making me blush!! The pretty wood gets the credit.
The FormaldehydeCaster was dedicated to Brainy and is ready for assembly after a bit more sanding on the neck. But the deadline for the Brainy memorial builds is in 2020/ish so I am on time. It has its own build thread somewhere here.
Thanks, what slip to the dark side??? I cannot see anything, what’s dark? Hey this is just a logo engraver and for dragging a laser along and perhaps a 3D print head down the road. It is too small to do something serious like a body. I justified it as “tuition” to learn something new.
Great job Helmut!!! I just reread all 28 pages and am still in awe of your work.
As much as I want to be on the machinist side of the war I am going to have to get one of these damn cnc’s someday soon. You know how long it takes me to cut MOP logos by hand!!?!?!?
Just an FYI, this looks absolutely amazing in person!
You do great, clean and precise work Helmut!!
Thank Rebel an John.
Mark, no rush, you know where to get support
It took 1.5 days for the acetone to soften all the CA on the logo
Dress rehearsal: All matching ABS inlay or mother of pearl for the big letters. Decided to go with all ABS. The with abalone fret dots and beige binging the MOP inlay looks out of place.
I believe it is time for you to buy a 3D printer ,to build your own logo!
Definitely a fan of the matching abs inlay. Great work!!
I am already collecting the parts to soup up the mini CNC to carry a 3D print head when the spindel or laser are not having a play date
Thank you Robert.

Now I want to see this written on the machine .
Really enjoying this thread. Read pretty much all thru the wolf build.
Thanks for taking the time to post your process. Fascinating.
Dude. You are one skilled mofo. That's easily the best wolfgang I've ever seen. ( and I'm not a big fan of the shape, in general )
Your attention to detail is superb. Love those inlays. Perfect. 3/16" is a great choice. Someday, I want to learn to do inlays.
Will probably start with simple dot replacement. ( I bought the SM router base years ago ... someday ... )
I just started working on a kit guitar and I'm into it. So much fun.
Back to your build: The neck is great. Bone nuts are my choice, also. I can't play a guitar w/trem so I love that fixed bridge.
The only thing I would've done different is speed knobs. I can't get over them. First guitar had 'em and I still love them.
Looking forward to see how the tele goes. ( Floppy disks FTW! ... LOL )
