Testimonials

Just wanted to say that the quality of all the products LMI has sent me is awesome!

I was shocked at the outstanding quality of the wood sent with my kit. All the wood in my kit is stunning! I can't wait to work on this project.  The quality of the services is top notch and the tools I bought from LMI are top grade.

I am glad LMI sets a high standard in quality all around. I look forward to this project and many more knowing that a place like LMI exists with these standards.

I work in a manufacturing environment so I know the work it takes to keep such a high standard. I know LMI couldn't do it without having good people doing the daily grind. Please let your co-workers and shop staff know that I said thanks for the work they do.

I hope LMI continues this tradition of high quality, it can be hard to find a place that values a high standard.

Great job
and thanks!

Binding Adhesives

Contact adhesive (FCA) with brush (FTB).

Binding cement, FGW

Our FCA, an industry standard used my many large American factories, is finally available to the small shop user. In the factory environment, it reduced the time the binding had to be bound up to 24 hours! Steve Helgeson of Moonstone Guitars says it has fast tack, sets up quickly and produces fewer fumes than other products he's used. Frank Ford was also very enthusiastic about it. This product was developed using it in combination with 14 different woods and 28 different plastics and it worked well with all. This means you can use it on oilier woods like Cocobolo with good adhesion.

Here's what Rick Rubin had to say about our FCA: "I just used your FCA binding adhesive to reglue the original binding to a new back I made for a 1937 Gibson. It's great stuff, not noxious, like the stuff in the tube I've used for years, and is exceptionally easy to apply. I'm not going back to the old stuff. Once again you've made available a superior product."


Our FGW is a cement for bonding plastic to wood. This works well for edge binding but may also be used for bonding pickguards, too. Our customers have told us that no other cement works as well on vinyls, ABS plastics, and most plastic bindings. Great for Boltaron™ where Duco won't work. Stronger than Duco and other cements, heat buildup from scraping or sanding does not cause the binding to delaminate. It works with cellulose nitrate (ivoroid, "tortoise"), but it does not dissolve the material like other acetone- based cements.

NOTE: As with any product, practice on a test piece before using on your guitar. These products etch slightly into the plastic and wood, so they are not appropriate for very thin plastic applications.
