Testimonials

“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!"

The CA250UDL and CA250UDXL combination carbide upcut/downcut bits leave a clean finish on either face of your stock. They are more expensive but well worth the price. We use these bits regularly in our shop. They have a 1/4" 2 flute upcut for a small portion of the bit then they transition to a 2 flute downcut for the remainder of the cutting length. 
                             Upcut = right-hand spiral, right-hand cut, Downcut = left-hand spiral, right-hand cut.
