Luthier's Friend and Robo-Sander™ with sleeve.
Luthier's Friend, SPLFSS, set-up.
Luthier's Friend in use with Sliding Vise, SPSV.
Bridge Compensation Vice, SPBCV
When you purchase the Luthier's Friend™ you get:
The Sliding Vise, SPSV, holds small parts (nuts and saddles) securely for safe and accurate thickness sanding. It is a must for making and fine tuning guitar saddles. It can also be used to hold small parts for freehand sanding. It is 8 inches long (purchase separately).
Bridge Compensation Vise, SPBCV — Cutting the Saddle Slot
The Bridge Compensation Vise will hold a guitar bridge precisely and safely while you mill the compensation slot. Use a shim cut to the proper angle to index the bridge. The Luthier's Friend™ micro-adjustable fence will allow you to set up perfectly and the long base allows for a safe and easy feed. Chuck up an end mill in your drill press and you are set to go.
The SPBCV gives you repeatable accuracy for small production runs. Use it without the shim to drill the bridge pin holes. The Bridge Compensator™ turns your Luthier's Friend™ into a bridge making machine.
