Just wanted to say that the quality of all the products LMI has sent me is awesome!

I was shocked at the outstanding quality of the wood sent with my kit. All the wood in my kit is stunning! I can't wait to work on this project.  The quality of the services is top notch and the tools I bought from LMI are top grade.

I am glad LMI sets a high standard in quality all around. I look forward to this project and many more knowing that a place like LMI exists with these standards.

I work in a manufacturing environment so I know the work it takes to keep such a high standard. I know LMI couldn't do it without having good people doing the daily grind. Please let your co-workers and shop staff know that I said thanks for the work they do.

I hope LMI continues this tradition of high quality, it can be hard to find a place that values a high standard.

Great job
and thanks!

Power Slotting System

FRETTINGPowerSlottingSystemSPFSYP600Power Saw Slotting System (SPFSYP) is the same tried-and-true power slotting system we have been using in our workshop for many years. Designed for the table saw and our fretting templates (two scales per template), this system allows the small shop to produce accurately slotted fingerboards in the most typical scale lengths.

Blades • Stiffeners • & Other Parts
Our LMI shop slots loads and loads of fingerboards, and with proper care and cleaning our blades last many months. We offer blades with either a .023" or .025" kerf. They are 6" diameter, have 190 teeth and a 5/8" arbor. The blade is designed with proper chip clearance and tooth angle for long life in Rosewood and Ebony.

Stiffeners, or collars, are the true heart of this system. They are made of heat-treated steel, are 5½" diameter, and each is .125" thick. This configuration controls blade runout, extends the life of the blade immeasurably, keeps it from deforming, and ensures accurate slots in your fretboard. Typical table saw stiffeners, similar to those that come with your table saw, are not adequate for this system. We highly recommend our stiffeners. Stiffeners are not available for the 1" arbor blade. 

The index pin that comes with the system is designed so that any fret position can also be used as a nut position or as a zero fret.
