    Hi Guys

    Could someone post the-email address for said legendary Drill man for me? In China ATM and find it hard to get any connections much at all, I think the Great Fire-wall of China combined with wife's half English/Chinese computer makes it difficult to type a full sentance without bursting into Chinese hieroglyphics。

    Thanks Andre they certainly have a large range, but appear very expensive compared to other sites, although the quality may be better.

    5 days later and the resin is still tacky. I tried another batch, this time with more hardener. We will see.

    Had a free hour so I started to shape the neck with the facet technique.

    I just passed along what I was taught. Charles Fox and George Morris showed it to me in 1980. :). The beauty is once you've done a few, it's faster than doing it with a machine operation and you can change the variables more easily. Plus it is kind of therapeutic.

    No matter what I try, the resin I have does not cure. Probably passed it shelf life by a couple of year.

    I bought another brand of resin that I'm testing.

    In the meantime I installed my fretboard on my locator pins

    52.PNG

    I cut the pockets for the inlays

    cleaned it up carefully.

    Will wait top see the result of the test of my new resin before comiting myself on this fretboard.

    Happy father's day my friends

    The new resin did cure properly, but the color is translucent

    57.PNG

    For that reason I coated the cavity with black lacquer

    I also created a tape dam

    56.PNG

    filled the cavity

    58.PNG

    Put a plexiglass on top to protect as much as possible against dust settling in it

    59.PNG

    You can see that my dam may not have been high enough.

    We'll see tomorrow, hopefully it will cure and be black enough.

    My dam did not work.

    Material fled the scene. You see that the cavities are not full

    Worked to improve my dam

    and filled with a second batch of resin
