    All right, Herb! Glad to hear you quit the sticks. Many of us here know how hard that is to do! And it facilitates healing, a HUGE plus!

    So, none of the CNC machines you guys are talking about can do bodies AND necks? Or is it just the logistics of the set-up for each task being complicated, and so you'd definitely want to have a dedicated machine to handle each, i.e., neck vs. body? Forgive my ignorance on the subject :eek:

    Thanks Craig , yes , I still have cravings but they are getting easier to ignore , and easier to breathe .
    I think Marty (guitar builder) is looking to build a dedicated neck CNC , I am looking for something that I can pretty much do all aspects of building , necks , and bodies . I have been looking at machines with 24" x 48" on the x and y axis on the large end down to 24" x 36" on the x and y axis on the smaller end . I only want one machine , and it will do all I want it to , if I win Lotto maybe I'll get a second one :)

    Hey, Herb. I don't want to put unreasonable pressure on ya here, but as I recall, there's a gorgeous Elpee waiting for a "big finish" ! Or did I get banned from the completion of the thread and just didn't notice?

    I haven't seen Herb on the forum for a bit. The Elpee is probably long done and he's just not telling us. :lol:

    Sounds familiar. :) Good to hear from you Herb. I've been trying to find some time to spend working on my CAD / design skills. Something else always keeps getting in the way. (plus I've got 4 guitars that need to be worked on / finished!)

    My apologies, I defer to my esteemed Senior IGPA Membership Steering Committee Chairman.

    DANG, I mean to my esteemed Quartermaster of the IGPA. :cry:

    Hi Herb,

    I quit smoking when I turned forty, I'm forty-five. I always tell people quitting was easy, learning to deal with life without the cigs is the hard part! Be honest with yourself about cravings, you do want a cigarette! But this phrase is very affective to say to yourself, "I don't do that anymore."

    Onto CNC's! I was directed to this site for very good CNC machines for guitar work.

    Thanks for sharing your thread.

    Ha , its still in the same state Doug , still waiting to be finished up , along with a sugar pine strat . I guess those 2 are my entry builds for the incomplete guitar club . I've got everything for them except the enthusiasm to finish them up , hopefully that will return soon .
