Resawing in Sydney?

Post by sebastiaan56 » Tue Jan 10, 2017 5:04 pm

Seems like I'm back to instrument making. A recent splurge in tassie has me in possession of some boards that I want ripped down to 4 and 12mm. Blackwood and myrtle.

Does anyone offer this as a service? I'm not after freebies just a quality job.

While not in Sydney.
I post my boards to Jens in Canberra - http://jensploesserguitars.com.au/
Nice guy, good price, great work.

Im not sure of his setup but he does an awesome job, super clean cuts (i think he uses a resaw king blade). He can saw to within 1mm of required useable thickness with minimal waste.
