Re: First Attempt at vacuum planking my hull

You know, on my guitars, I use system 3 for pore filling with silica filler....pores fill clear as the epoxy soaks in. I wonder if 2-3 coats done that way with a couple more pure coats would alleviate that? No shrinkage, holes are clear and level. Just a thought.

Re: Out Board Generator

Harbor Freight has this inexpensive little one that might fit the bill:

Seems decent if you change the plug and use high octane gas.

Re: Epoxy won't set up.

When using the System III epoxies as grain fillers on my guitars, they have always recommended mixing in one container, then when everything has been added (if you are using solids of some sort) mix it again in another container to prevent catching any unmixed material from the sides of the first co...

Re: Epoxy Mixing Cups - Reccomendations

We like cottage cheese in our family, and I use them for mixing epoxy, mixing laquer, or any other number of things that need mixing. They work well, and are a comfortable size to hold, mix, and work with.

Re: Mahogany veneers?

I love wenge and use it on my guitars all the time. Depending on how you cut it, can show a beautiful straight grain, or an even more beautiful wild grain. It bends well with heat and proper backing support, but is a very splintery wood. My only concern, much like padauk (which I also use and love o...

Re: "Must Have" tools?

Nice find, Fergal! I just broke down and painted an old plainer with a belt/pulley system made by Homecraft (think it is early 50s vintage), and it works great, except that 2 weeks after I finished, the bearings started rattling, which causes a little extra tear-out. Need to replace them, but damn, ...

Re: My Gentry build

I like to use the side of a pencil and shade the wood, just some squiggle lines where I am sure it is flat, or like on a concave surface where it is easy to tell, but more obvious shading with a pencil where I suspect I have a concavity. A few swipes with the sandpaper removes the lines if the surfa...

Re: Dewalt 1/4 Sheet Sander $34.99 at Amazon

I actually have two of them, and agree with the issue regarding grain. In my first, the padding is so worn I am going to remove the pad and residue, maybe epoxy some delrin to the bottom.
