A great resource, as usual, for newbies to luthierie Steve! One trick when making kerfed linings is to use an old piece of bandsaw blade or some veneeer glued into a wooden stop as per the photo. Shown in the pic is the one I laid my hands on in a hurry. I have since made a more adjustable one, haven't made liners for a while so it's buried in the shed! The first two cuts are made then the blade sets the distance between cuts.
Cheers! Ross

I KNEW somebody would complain about my throat plate!!!! :mrgreen: Yes, but the guides are perfectly adjusted and the wheel rubbers are in good condition. It is a job for a 'round tuit'....when cutting fine veneers or soundboard trimming etc I use a piece of flat wood with a saw kerf cut into it so it's not really an issue. -Ross

Awesome Steve, thanks for the advice. Patience in waiting for the glue to soften during heating has definitely been my weak point!!
The surface thermometer is something I'll be shopping for ASAP.
