    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...

    Winston Moy seems to get along just fine with his Shapeoko, even cuts brass and aluminum.

    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.

    And the really great thing about the way Vectric markets their software is that you don't lose anything when you upgrade. If you spend $700 today on VCP and later want the $2k Aspire they'll credit...

    As I understand the software origin and path each has taken, it looks to me like Vectric Aspire is based on ArtCAM Standard and Carveco is based on ArtCAM Premium. Not having used Aspire and just...

    I haven't watched any videos yet but just curious, does Carveco generate G-code that I'll run with Mach4? I assume it has a CAM module, as well.

    Are you doing a rough cut and finish cut? I would climb cut first and take a full depth conventional cut final pass, say 0.004", to finish and see how that does. I know that adds to the job time...
