Testimonials

“It's nice to know that
I have a good
source for quality
guitar wood as
well as guitar parts
fabrication, such as
LMI's fingerboard
slotting service. 
As I am only set up
to slot 650mm
fingerboards, you
guys have saved my
butt on making me
several odd scale
lengths recently! 
I want you to know
that I appreciate
you guys and the
wood and services
that you supply
to me, a small,
independent luthier. 
Your fine fingerboard
slotting service
saves me a lot of
time and trouble,
for which I am grateful. 
THANK YOU!"

LMI Bending Machine

BENDINGmachineLMI600wNewHandleThe LMI BENDING MACHINE

The search for precision, repeatability and control during the bending process lead LMI to create this new bending machine. The open cantilever design, the revolutionary rollers for bending the bouts, and the accuracy of our TC120 or TC220 temperature controllers are the heart of this innovative machine.

TACTILE FEEDBACK
Since the temperature is controlled automatically, there is no need to rush the bend. The wood will neither get too hot nor cool off. Engage the wood until you feel it relax under the roller, and then press it into shape as its resistance subsides.
