Plate Joining Jig for instrument tops and backs
Our Plate Joining Jig (PJJN) has some slick features you will enjoy. The unit is self-contained and does not need to be bench mounted. There are holes machined into the base so it can be temporarily clamped to your bench while joining your back or top. Once your plates are glued up, you can create space setting the jig aside while your glue dries. The PJJN is a simple, robust, bolt-together design that can be easily disassembled for storage. The base of the jig is constructed from non-stick HDPE (high-density polyethylene) and the top is protected by high-tech Kapton® tape.

Video: Using the LMI Plate Joining Jig.
We have used these jigs in our shop for years to join backs and soundboards. The process is simple. Just joint or plane the edge of the board to be joined. Sand it for a perfect fit. Place it in the jig and put the lattice over the top making sure the joint is flat. (1) Lace the lattice and base together and insert triangular tighteners. (2) Gently hammer in till the fit is tight. (3) Allow glue to dry and voila, a professionally joined top or back. We use our LMI FGX glue exclusively for this purpose with great results.
