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!"

Flush Trim Router Bits

ROUTFlushTrimRouterBitSPCPF
 See the SPCPF flush trim bit as used in Serge Lachapelle's shop.

The SPCPF heavy-duty flush trim router bit with bearings is an indispensable item in Tom Ribbecke's shop. He uses it for trimming out pegheads, top and back profiles, neck blanks, and many jobs where something heavier than a normal pattern router bit is needed. The angled blade of micro-grain carbide leaves a superb cut and will last forever. Tom said his cutter has taken a fair amount of abuse and still works like new. The bit has a 2" length of cut (LOC) , a cutter diameter of 3/4", and an overall length (OAL) of 3 5/8". It has a 1/2" shank, so it needs to be used with a larger router. We recommend using it with a 1 3/4 horsepower (or greater) router. It is important that the chuck is good, so avoid cheaper routers. Ribbecke recommends a Porter Cable but stresses that there are other quality routers on the market that will work well. Comes with bottom (or top) bearings and stop collar.
