Testimonials

“I recently purchased a beautiful fingerboard from you and now I am thinking of grabbing fretwire from you as well. Unfortunately I'm cheap and lazy and find myself here asking if it is possible to pay more to have your fretwire radiused before it is sent? You guys would be the coolest ever. No matter what the outcome, I will be sending more business your way from here in Maine. Hoping for good news! 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.
