Re: Neck Laminations and Glue choice

I remember the discussions about PU glue for neck laminations. I remember Mario saying that gorilla foamed too much but the Elmer’s PU glue was good. I used it for a couple of necks but I could never seem to keep it from hardening in the bottle between projects. I stopped using it for that reason an...

Re: Grizzly air filter making me crazy

Thanks, Barry. I’ll get some contact cleaner when I’m able to get out, hopefully some “essential” reason will come up. I have no electric guitars in the house but I’m sure once I have some, I’ll find lots of uses for it. Do you think the WD40 will be an issue in the mean time? Will it create more of...

Re: Grizzly air filter making me crazy

I went over the board with my optimist on and all of the joints look well soldered. Here is the weird thing. I gave the switches a squirt of WD40 because that is all I had in hand. I plugged the board back in and the switches now work but the remote control only works partially. It responds inconsis...

Re: Grizzly air filter making me crazy

To clarify, I took the control board out and see no evidence of damage. Nothing is gummed up, no swollen capacitors, no scorching of any kind. I can jump the power cord directly to the motor and it runs all three speeds just fine. So I know it is a problem with the board, I just don’t know what woul...

Grizzly air filter making me crazy

I have one of those grizzly air filters with three speeds and timer selections. After I moved last fall I was having some trouble with it when I was setting up my shop. At first it would not start with the remote. I could turn it on with the buttons on the unit. after a while the buttons stopped wor...

Re: Board index additions

I know there is an "other stringed instruments" section where ukes and mandos (among other things) would typically go to. I have no official capacity but I could see how an ukulele section could be beneficial if there is a ready made population of makers looking for a place to go. It would be nice t...

Re: Attach routing template to spruce top

I would say you should have good results with masking tape and heat to remove but practice on scrap to see if you can get it warm enough to release easily through the template.

Re: Hi

The Cumpiano book will be a good resource to cover what tools you need. I think most people here have read and wold recommend that book but may not follow all the procedures outlined there. We tend to adjust our methods and fit in new techniques over time. I don't make classicals, so I don't know ho...

Re: Loss of bass lowering the saddle?

Barry took the words out of my mouth. Make sure you protect the surface of the top from the clamp so you don't mar or dent it.
