    Tickled Pink: Jupiter's Es-335 Build

    Here's a method to calculate your neck angle. Set your actual body flat on a table with the body resting on the arching, and the sides parallel with the table, Measure the distance from the edge of the sides to the table. Something like one half Inch. This is your arching height. Next draw it...

    Yes Jupiter that's right. It's a beam that is straight with a hook on the nut end and exactly from the nut to where the bridge will be sitting there is a dowel that sticks out one half inch. This beam rides on The frets.

    I didn't realize you had gotten that far. Looks like it'll work fine. Plaster is readily available in the hardware stores here so that's why I suggested it.

    Yes. The center block was done differently in different periods. For the first alteration from the solid one that you were doing wasn't cut out to fish the pots through. That sounds little different The consensus is that it doesn't make that much of a difference although a little bit. But Eric...

    Jupiter, I just wanted to let you know that I'm taking some time to go through your thread. It's interesting to see how you think things through and get help from this forum. Please ask if you have any specific questions for me.

    there's a little hint. You're going to zero your Z height on the spoil board. Or wherever you are going to zero it. Put the small cutter in the keep it slightly loose. Then jog down to the surface. Slowly until it touches. In the bit will slide. Stop jogging once it starts to slide. 0Z. Tighten...

    The other question is have you ever used Rhino and a rhino plug-in for Cam like rhino Cam or mad cam? I would really be interested in your comparison if you have.

    Very nice documentation. You really do A good presentation of your work. I have a few questions. What is the reason that you removed all of the material around the dots? Is that because you get better round stock? For example couldn't you just use a micro bit and route spiral passes around...
