- LMI INFO
“Thanks for continuing to strive for excellence in the many services you provide. The website looks great. The more streamlined look is less distracting and I think will make navigating the sight even better!
I have been using LMII as my main wood/parts supplier for almost 5 years now. LMII not only provides excellent products, but has been a link for me to gain access to a tremendous amount of expert knowledge and instruction on acoustic guitar building. Thanks for striving so hard to connect the dots for newer luthiers like myself to be able to benefit from the hard earned experience of the pros. I am now starting on my tenth guitar and have sold 6 of them. With each build, I strive to venture to new personal ground and it comforts me to know that LMII is always there and I can depend upon you guys for whatever I need, every step of the way."

|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 3/16" to 4" radii, with a fine thread mechanism. A ¼" drill rod is used as the registration pin. The blade is high carbon steel made by Ron Hock and is held in place with an Allen head cap screw. The blade block is locked in place by an Allen bolt. Wrenches for each are included.
Beginning with a compass, mark your rosette or soundhole lines. Set the depth of the knife. Mount the cutter on the 1/4" pin that protrudes from your backing board and soundhole centerpoint and begin cutting. Your soundboard should be thickness sanded before attempting to cut out the soundhole as the blade cutting depth is limited.
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 tearout. Be sure to keep your blade sharp.
