Gil, no offense, but I don't remember, I only remember the premise.
you should definately do a shop build thread! ...but not instead of this one.
A shop build thread would be awesome!
They say that if you drink half a glass of water while the dream is still fresh in your memory you'll keep remembering it.
I was just kidding... but now it looks like a good idea. OK.
A shop build thread would be of interest to a lot of us beginners... I mean, come on we want to know what's on your sandwich!
A shop building/set-up thread would be great for us amateurs...
If you wind a pickup and you are not happy with the way it came out, can you then unwind and rewind with the same wire? or is it rendered useless?
Although my PU's quality is very consistent I sometimes want to try a different PU to match a specific guitar. I just do a new one and keep the first for another build... no reason to unwind.
Hey Gil, what is the model of your belt sander, looks like a perfect tool to me?
No model... it was made here in Israel and it's a heavy duty tool. Weighs about 350lbs...
I'm going to order another one from the same guy but smaller for roughing the G necks more comfortably.
i can't find anyting like that here, all are too small or too large
wish i know toolman here who can do stuff like this, do you know any similar models from any company who make stuff with size like your belt sander, maybe i can import something or find a dealer
Your necks turn out so nice! Tom Bartlett built a neck sanding machine on MLP and showed some photos. It is just like The one a Gibson factory with deadheads built to shape the heel. Check it out if you haven't already.
Those are short shaft pots right? Anything else special about the wiring harness? Special wiring type or anything?
He did? All I saw was a portable belt sander clamped into a vice.
I meant "you" as a general term and not you personally, but, I understand what you're saying. Thanks!!
Thanks Ken. Yes, I'm familiar with the old Gibson neck belt sander (still used today BTW). Actually there's nothing special about it and many factories used and use it (or a CNC) to shape the back of their necks, but I want one for roughing the necks, not finalizing them. I prefer to continue finalizing the shape very slowly using my hand as a meter because the sander eats too much too quickly. On the other hand, if used with a finer grit sanding belt it would build up more heat... I agree however that it's the best solution for mass production situations.
The pots have medium shafts. The short ones are used for F guitars.
Nothing special about the wiring, but I'll be using NOS 2 strand shielding wire, original PIO BB caps and NOS PVC shielding. The Switch is the long Switchcraft with Catalin tip, jack is Switchcraft, the pots are CTS for now, but I might be offering Centralab repros on those builds in the future.
Oh... well.. that definitely changes the way I understand your Q.
In that case, use a sharp pointy knife to cut the coil and start over of course.
It's a shame to throw away good bobbins.
I'm paying attention!
If this are right ones... I bet this seller has some more. Seems a fair prize too.
[edit:] Whoops seems that they have the wrong shaft...
Good find, but these are 80's NOS.
