“Dear Sir,
A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with Sitka top.
I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce.
The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirely by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a drill press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them.
It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career.
Many Thanks.
ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”

Blower Base Assembly

RTPBBlowerBasewPump900The Blower Base Assembly (RTPBBBA), for use with the LMI Rotary Plunge Tool, helps keep your work area clean and visible. The acrylic base has a channel routed in it, covered by a thin plate that allows the aquarium pump (included) to softly blow fine dust and chips away from your cutting line without creating a dust cloud. We find it works best in a conventional cut direction. When used in conjunction with the light plate we could easily see pencil lines on Ebony!

The Blower Base Assembly includes an acrylic base with a built in push-to-connect fitting, the blower and 2 feet of flexible tubing. Additional tubing is available separately.
