“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!"
Horizontal Clamps: PT = Plunger travel; BL = Base to tip length; CH = Clamp height; BW = Base width
VACUUM SHEETING Vacuum sheeting is sold by the foot in either a 36" or 47" width. (The average size needed for a brace clamping fixture is approx. 32" x 32")
A quantity of 1 equals a 1' x 47" or a 1' x 36" sheet. A quantity of 2 equals a 2' x 47" or 2' x 36" sheet, etc.
Important Note: Care should be taken whenever using any rubber or synthetic product on a finished guitar. Rubber and vinyl react badly with finishes. We have found that neoprene is relatively safe when used on a lacquer finish, but care should still be taken. Make sure you finish is fully or almost fully cured, and never leave the neoprene in contact with the finished product any longer than is necessary.
PHENOLIC FACED PLYWOOD Phenolic faced plywood, 3/4" x 24" x 24", is great for building your own jig fixture.
