Laminated Archtop Plates

Post by Terence Kennedy »

Greetings. With the apparent closing of Acme Archtops under the new ownership it is getting difficult to source laminated plates.

Anyone have any tips

Thanks

Make your own? We have had a lot of previous discussions here on the process. I have made a few and its not too difficult once you get a few issues worked out.

Ken Macay used to make and sell laminated plates. You might want to contact him.

No tutorials available, but if you search the library you can find multiple threads on the subject.

Here is a link to one: http://www.mimf.com/old-lib/laminated_a ... plates.htm
