Re: Future Builds - Kinda Not Random

2nd part first. Bugger! Poo happens and all the care in the world won’t stop Murphy from biting at some point. It’s going to be no consolation but I haven’t yet drilled out a side mounted jack hole without a bit of blow out. In fact the two F hole chambers have little belly buttons where the drill t...

Re: Help me fix my window demister!

Re: ONE BIG THANK YOU

Wow! Father of one of my son's friends was changing a light bulb that shattered in his hand. He cleaned himself up went to the local clinic and got a few stitches. No big deal. Fast forward a few days and he's picked up one of those nasty flesh eating bugs and over the ensuing weeks lost over half o...

Re: Latest Builds

^ Let's not go there please. :lol: There is some logic behind removing weight the way I have but it's not engineered in any way for tonal changes. Tonight went past really quickly, another quiet night in the shop which suits me just fine. Took the single cut body out of the clamps, cleaned up the ed...

Re: Warwick Corvette Ramp

And just so that you have too many options..

I have some Walnut and Gidgee that might also suit. I'm also in the shop tomorrow with Michael so I'm sure we can sort you out.

Re: Latest Builds

So another 4 hours tonight in the shop. It's pretty cold out so only the 4 of us in for the evening. Workshop was about 13DegC so not bad. Because there wasn't a lot of people to keep an eye on, David was able to assist with the machining and we got a heap done. Rob's away on holiday so Dan is helpi...

Re: Future Builds - Kinda Not Random

Remember all the trouble you had with inserts back at NMIT? Looks like you have that all squared away now and have it down pat. With the grounding wire, things settle after a while and what was a good contact becomes a dodgy one down the track. Might be worth soldering that grounding wire to a some ...

Re: Latest Builds

When did you see it Michael? Were you in the shop earlier today? I didn't get there till after 2pm, when they said the power would be off I spent the day umpiring some primary school softball. It was wet but lots of fun. Oh and yes it's a 30" scale. Thanks for the nice comments guys and no I won't b...
