Pat that looks Hot Rod HOT!
currently in my workbench is my failed first attempt at a CNC neck.
It got loose once flipped around to carve fret radius
You should be able to fix that by adding a fretboard with binding.
Ha-ha, finally you did it, Nick! looks great. Keep it hidden from your kids, though.
Now, like Rob, we are waiting for some clown. . . Uh, I mean, pickups! Good show!
Wow, that looks great, Pat
Just cut this body on the CNC.
Making a couple of laminated necks.
Holy cow, that is AWESOME!!
Nice. Really like the white blonde.
Beautiful! Man, I wish you were my neighbor!
Nice, what guitar model?
Haha. Thanks Rick.
Here is my first.
Your first clown wig? A proud moment. One to treasure. Welcome to the club.
That looks like he was removing the wire from an old pickup to rewind the bobbin. I'm not sure that counts as his first clown wig.
If that's the case, then I formally eject Nick from the club.
Nooooo pls I will do anything to stay, here take one clown wig!!!
I have to work the tension system now.I use the cloth peg with velcro system but I believe I didn't have much tension.My bobbin has 5000 turns and it is almost full and the other bobbin has space for 1000 more turns.
It is possible to re-enter the club. Upon production of one authentic, hand made, genuine clown wig.
Hey Nick, it's my own design.
On the clothespin/ Velcro tensioner, do this. Take off the Velcro. Fold a small piece of sand paper in half like a little book with the rough side out. Open the clothes pin jaws, stick in the sand paper, close the jaws and pull the sand paper out. Do this several times and you will create nice flat mating surfaces say 5mm wide. Without doing this, the clothes pin jaws usually are like two radii touching tangentially. The contact point is small. Therefore, when you are winding and don't have the wire directly in the contact point, you have no tension. The sandpaper trick fixes this. Proceed.
Nice Brian. I can't wait to see the headstock too.
Thanks Rob, nice tip.
