Re: Help Finding a Guitar Site

That's it. For some reason my old bookmark for the site no longer functioned, but doing a Google search for the URL brought it up. And the repair pages are under the not really well named "Items for Luthiers", which sounds like a merchandize page.

In any case, thanks!

Help Finding a Guitar Site

I hope I've put this in the right place. I'm trying to find a site I visited several years ago. I thought I had bookmarked it, but if so, I've lost it. It was the site of a shop/repairman that had many photos of various guitars he had repaired. The things that stuck with me are his use of de-ionized...

Re: A brief history of the MIMF

Wow. So, it's been that long. I joined back in 1999. I've never been a large contributor, but I do have one minor distinction. I was the last person to post a 'What wood is this?" thread. Mine was the straw that broke Deb's back and stop any more of those questions. I did eventually identify the woo...

Re: Help us create an FAQ for glues!

Re: Help us create an FAQ for glues!

Also ... I had to glue nylon to wood once. The local glue genius (no longer here) put me onto some yellow rubbery stuff from 3M. I think it had acetone plasticiser. It set up very quickly. Anyone know what it was, not necessarily 3M, generally? I see no one has answered wblakesx question. The glue ...
