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!"

Bending Pipe & Aid

BENDING PIPE
Although we offer the LMI Bending Machine and the Electric Free-Form Bending Iron to bend sides consistently and accurately to exact shapes, we also offer this12" long aluminum pipe for hand bending sides and bindings in the traditional manner. The pipe is mounted in a vice and heated internally with a propane torch. Although it requires developing skill through use, this method of hand bending over a pipe has been used for centuries and is still used by skilled builders all around the world.

BENDING AID (sold separately)
Our stainless steel bending aid makes bending on a pipe/iron a breeze. The hinged handles give you more control and a cooler grip. We still recommend that you use gloves when bending to avoid accidental burns.
