Re: Who uses scrapers?

Thanks gents. I'm only hearing good things about scrapers.
What sharpening tools/stones/grit do you use with the scrapers?

Re: Who uses scrapers?

For neck and body shaping do you suggest a rectangular scraper? Where do you source the tools from?

Who uses scrapers?

I've never used a hand cabinet scraper before and was wondering who uses them?
I notice they come in different shapes and sizes ...
Which scrapers do you use?
Do they eliminate the need for sanding?

Re: Build #3, 4, 5 ...

Like this? Using plastic inlays. Looks like he leaves the masking tape there too?



This also looks like a good idea using a template and dowel. I might give this a go as it seems nice and tidy:

Re: Build #3, 4, 5 ...

Cheers.
I've just realised my fret slots are a little too deep for the fret tangs. Looks to be about.060" instead of .054" for the mando frets. Would this cause any issues other than aesthetically? I could use the jumbo fret wire instead?

Re: Build #3, 4, 5 ...

Do you guys trim the fretboard first and then glue it? Like this?

Re: Build #3, 4, 5 ...

That's what I was thinking. Just making sure. Now on to testing the fret slot depth before gluing on the fretboard. Just gotta make sure it's straight! I remember seeing someone align the board with two pins before gluing.

The mahogany/swamp ash body went through the thicknesser - down to 40mm. https://imgur.com/a/HFY7N1i Used the fret saw and box to cut fret slots for the 32" bass. Lots of sanding to get the rough patches out of the flame ma...

Re: Future Builds - Kinda Not Random

Thanks for the info. I have two Dragon hand cut rasps from Stewmac which work well with very little chattering. Although I've nothing to compare them with.
