“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!"
CUSTOMER COMMENT "I just wanted to drop you an e-mail to let you know just how pleased I am with your binding cutter and bearing kit. I used it for the first time today and the whole operation was a piece of cake. The cut was clean as a whistle and the cutter didn't grab a bit when I used a climb cut. I'm very pleased and impressed."
Our Binding Cutter/Bearing Kit can be purchased in two configurations: the SPCPCN short shank bearing kit w/cutter, or the SPCPCNL long shank bearing kit w/cutter. The cutter and bearings can also be purchased separately.
The cutter is a specially designed 1" router cutter with carbide cutting tips. The bearings are accurately machined steel wheels press fit onto ½" bearings. These bearing/wheels are attached to the cutter with a small Allen cap screw and yield a multitude of binding/purfling ledges. The resulting ledge is easily and accurately cut each time with almost no thought. Just measure the width of the binding or binding and purfling combination, choose the appropriate bearing/wheel, attach the bearing/wheel to the bottom of the cutter and start routing.
Inside diameter of each bearing measures .187"
Cutter has a 5° downshear
Cutter shank diameter is .250"
Cutter shank length is 1.388" on the short version.
Cutter shank length is 1.450" on the long version.
Cutting edge measures .5"
NOTE: The SPCUT and SPCUTL cutters are made in the USA.
