Thanks for the inquiry re: my use of the Safe T Planer. I still haven't pulled the trigger yet, but am getting close to giving it the go then I'll let you know. Curious, do you fix the depth then feed, or do you draw the drill press down then feed?
Bob, it is barely in the finish and I think I will sell it as is, great sound, great neck and it is a Marin, will leave it up to the new owner.
You were great with all your information, and I might add I now have a few more cleaners that I did not have last week, my work bench has a few more weapons/cleaners so to speak!!
Was trying to see if Icould find any U-tube links of you playing one of your classical guitars but never found one. Did see your web site!Ever thought of adding a clip of you playing one of your beauties Bob. Would love to hear you give it play. Maybe add a clip link on the Frets- Net site also as sure gang there would love to also
Going to attack my old EL'DAGAS before touching my Guild to get the feel of the fret file again and my sanding technique with my new invention Bob.
Right now, I'm building an Overholtzer style braced classical with a cut away. Bubinga back and sides. Salvaged redwood top, nitro.
I'm also building a traditional Torres style classical (Honduran rosewood - beautiful stuff and sitka top (will be FP)
Also auditorium size steelstring- salvaged indian rosewood (3 piece back) , bearclaw sitka, nitro.
And two J-45s --Honduran mahogany, red spruce 1959 thin style bracing but with low mass bridges.
This is a pretty big plate for me; I usually do only 3 a year.
The auditorium and one of the J45s is sold.
What do you got cooking?
Tapping the aluminum bar for the treads to hold down sand bar handle went perfect and have a piece of 320 wet/dry locked and taped in place. Already to give it a try on my old beater once my friends son returns it to me. With luck will get to give the new sander a practice tomorrow while Iawait customs to release the package containing the bomb should they be lurking into our conversations! Will let you know how that goes after a bit of practice. Is it best to sand frets away or towards sound hole Bob? Have a tempate made to protect my Guild but not yet for the practice guitar but have the thin cardboard on hand.
ps Hope this gets through as my Norton expired and installed free AVG but lost my log in and had to re-new againbut seem to be logged in again now.
