    Why is he selling this? Does it have issues, has he outgrown it, is he not using it, etc.?

    Rigid as it needs to be for what...? It looks like a lightweight machine but that doesn't mean it won't cut the things shown in their promo video. But it probably does mean that you won't be able...

    That's really progressing well, Jim. I like the idea of using lesser woods for testing. When you're finished with them you can hang them on the wall for good ambiance in the shop! :)

    Nicely done, Jim!! Where did the weight end up on this guitar? If it's Spruce it must be on the lighter side of most Telecasters.

    Building an electric is on my bucket list but it's pretty far...

    Do you have a planer, Bill? How about a jointer? Either of those will work. A drum sander is nice but not necessary. Matter of fact, you can use your CNC to surface the Walnut. I've done that...

    I would just mill and glue my own. That way you'll get exactly what you want. If there's a sawmill close to you then you'll probably get a better price than going to a lumber yard. I buy unsteamed...

    You can just set Z 0.020" lower than normal to cut the pockets deeper (or whatever you need). That will keep you from having to make any changes to your drawing, unless you want the changes so you...

    Assuming you're placing the dots in the traditional location, center of the fingerboard between strings 3 & 4 on their respective frets, the strings shouldn't be in contact with the markers. If you...

    I can't see it being a problem if the inlay is small, Jim. My preference is to use wood or shell for inlay, though.

    Photos? Can't wait to see what you come up with and how it progresses.

    Victoria, can you post a photo of the area you're cutting? I work on guitars, am building them when I can get shop time away from my regular work, and have played some dulcimers in the past. But...

    Almost three years ago, at age 63, I built a beast of a CNC router. My plan is to use it for a long, long time. Buy the mill.
