Re: Cutting The Neck Tenon With a Table Saw

Martin, Thanks for the reply. Presumably you set the blade angle to plus and then minus 5 degrees - I see this OK, but how do you get the 1 degree back angle - do you use the table saw? Mitch Mitch Most saws will only tilt in one direction, so you cant go minus 5 degrees, you need to flip the work ...

Re: Timber identification

I agree with Allen, it might be QLD Maple, it does have that look about it. QLD Maple does have a very distinct smell about it when cut.

Re: Extreme Curl Satin Box Tenor Uke

Top notch as usual! Are you moving away from your old head stock design? I have to say I liked the previous one a little bit more. I do like the heal and cap design that you have recently changed too, even though the way you used to continue the heel cap into the back was awesome.

Cheers

Re: Bolt on bolt off neck - order of operations

Richard

Are you also are after a measurement for the position of the 14th fret relative to to front face of the nut? You can go to Stewmac's fret position calculator and it will tell you. I think for a 631mm scale length it was very close to 350mm.

Re: "Dying" craft & radial soundboard

Good on the bloke for having a go and trying something different. I would however like to see how he measured the vibrations getting out onto the soundboard very quickly which help to clarify the sound :-D

Re: Further J45 questions

1 I'm assuming the dimension of the bolt on/off headblock are a bit bigger that actually required and the 100 mm depth is to be trimmed to fit to the brace (78 mm or something like). The plan seems to indicate a 30 mm thickness while the book requires 35 mm. Is this thickness actually critical as l...

Re: New to the group and guitar building

Hi I just had a look at the metadata of the first photo in your post and it says to rotate 180 degrees, that is why it's upside down! This was actually a big issue with the iPad in the early days when developers forgot to account for Lefties. The normal orientation for taking a photo with an iPad is...
