“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.

Locating Pins & Drills


Locating pins in use.
Set includes: 2 drills and 6 locating pins

This set of 1/32" (.031") precision locating pins are perfect for use in fret slots for locating fretboards and other parts. The set consists of 6 pins and 2 drill bits. Just drill, position, and glue. Use a soldering iron to heat and remove pins after gluing!
The locating pins and drills are slightly larger than most slot kerfs, however the crown of the fretwire will cover the hole created by the pin. These are not appropriate for use on a fretless fingerboard where the slot width is less than 1/32".
