Yes brickdust, rottenstonedust and rooftiledust was used (mostly for darker and red woods) while filling the pores you also grind the woodfibres into them. Some woodworkers only used alcohol and pumace where to fill pores..
I use alcohol too, but usually not near my guitars!
I'm loving this thread...
I thought of your rings when I spied this little number on Ebay...it's a bit "pricey" , but your rings look as nice.
Haha, all I could think about is this ol' classic:
then there's this one
LOLOLOL.... you got me on the floor now...
No... thank you friend... If I can't have a large steady supply I'd rather not have it at all. I hate to repeatedly look around for stuff... but if you'll find a supplier I'd like to have the link please.
I'm not going to mass produce parts... I hardly keep up producing guitars...
but my wife and daughter asked me to let them do the parts thing for me... so maybe I'll agree to that and let them handle the following:
1) Pre-CBS bobbins
2) PAF bobbins
3) PU Winding and assembly
5) Pots selection and degreasing
6) PIO caps rolling and casting
8) Rare hardware
9) M-69 Rings and LP guards
11) Bakelite parts
It's not such a bad idea... I'll have more time to do what I love to do best... Dirty Woodworking (-;
Where can I get that material? Do I need to grind it myself?
Is that FFFF grade?
Did you use it yourself on Mahogany or Ash?
Oh yes.... have you seen that one.... ?
My favorite Lester of all times... a dark back GT... so clean too...
The repro rings are just what they are... a 100% duplication of every little microscopic bump.... this molding technique is superb. Just need to keep the molds very clean.
I have a question for you knowledgeable guys.
Since the big hanger screw was used on the butt of the body for finishing it required a bigger screw for the strap button on that location.
The normal size (neck side) is #6 X 1" but I always thought the bigger ones were #8 X 1 1/4".... on the inspected burst it was #8 X 1 1/2" !!!
I didn't see any signs of screw replacement and the rust and dirt matched the strap button 100%.... so I'm wondering, was I wrong to think they used #8 X 1 1/4" on the bursts or did they use both lengths ?!?
I'd rather have this one for about half the price:
And no rings to worry about (but I have to sell my house first)
Forgot to post a little something... and no one even noticed... come on guys!
Need to flush the MOP logo and round the headstock edges.
I use a little block with 150 grit
A few strokes
Edges are gently rounded 59 style (-;
Done. Note the yellow areas... just like.... you know the song already...
No, I dont know, it is for violin varnishes and kremer is a top notch shop.
0 - 90 µ seems super fine grained or not ??
any ideas what FFFF refers to?
There have also pumice from USA.
under <90 they say very fine:
under <150 fine:
under <180 medium:
under <250 its coarse:
Are pics of any help?
Then search partsdealer sites.
some nice pics with bigger screws only, but they mention two sizes:
Yes... that's the stuff... <90
OK... just ordered 1kg of each
1 99907 Pumice Powder 6/0, very fine , Menge 1kg, 2.90 EUR
1 99900 Pumice Powder fine , Menge 1kg, 2.90 EUR
and let you know if it's good enough.
Looks like it will be OK (-;
Thanks again expo !!!
