“Just stumbled upon your website, after beginning a search to start a long-held desire to build an instrument, and all I can say is, "WOW'!!!! What an absolute treasure trove of delights, information, goodies! I look forward to ordering the fruits of a trawl through your extensive, if not mind-blowing array of products! WOW!"

Rosette/Circle Cutter

SPCC
 Rosette/Circle Cutter - top and bottom view.

This tool is great for marking and cutting the rosette trough, the soundhole, and the soundhole reinforcement material. It is well suited as a marking/cutting tool whenever a radius is called for. The SPCC is milled from aluminum and the radius is adjustable from 1 5/16" (33mm) to 6" (152mm) radii. The blade is high carbon steel made by Ron Hock. Wrenches are included.

NOTE: Make sure that the flat side of the blade faces the ledge that is to be 90 degrees. On the initial pass, rotate the cutter slowly as you move into the grain to avoid tear out. Be sure to keep your blade sharp.
