Does anyone have a program that will print a template from a late sixties Martin fretboard with a rare 25.4 inch scale like a
1969 N -20?. Please contact me with thanks. If you could print the template up and give me some exact measurements at the center 5th,9th,and 12th that would help me big time re-fret this replaced fretboard in my mock69N-20.Also the exact nut to center saddle measurement is needed.Be great if you can give me these in 32nds inches.This would help with thanks fo sure to get things right. I tried to print a template from Canadian luither school link but does not seem right so no frets slots are being cut till I find the problem. Was not getting the A string harmonic on the old neckso something was wrong.-Rob

An un-sung hero in my shop is a keyless chuck on my drill press. Sounds silly but I love that thing every day.
Frequently drilling means, pilot hole, clearance hole, countersink.
I've had my keyless chuck for more than a decade. If I had to go back to a key now for every bit change, I think I'd quit!
The most useful item in my workshop, alright shed, apart from the kettle is the single edge razor blade. I use them all the time for cutting trimming, removing paint, scraping finishes, removing dribbles and runs and much more. Wouldn't like to shave with one though.
Here's one I'm never going back on. It's an outgrowth of this conversation. Lacquer curing fumes Thanks to the folks with suggestions in that thread.
I spray lacquer outside but have humidified, heated air and don't want to live with off-gassing fumes. These work like a champ.
Might be the best money I ever spent.
They make such a big difference in indoor air quality I keep the little slow one quietly running 24/7.
Even with no finish curing in the shop, if it is off overnight, the air is noticeably worse in the morning when I open the door.
