I got some requests for putting up a video on how the Fingerboard Radius Jig works in real-life. And I agree that sometimes a video is a better choice as the fastest way to show how things really work. Especially when it comes to getting a hang-on how this awkward-looking construction works. So here it is…
Some facts on the fingerboard; The wood is Panga Panga. It’s a 10″-16″ compound fingerboard with 22 frets. Fan fretted with the scales 26,25″ on low E and 25,3″ at high e.
Hello Michael, Big thanks for the great drawings for this jig. As you have shared this as “open source” I want to “grant back” my improvement to you: I added pieces of extra veneer with “peel holes” to strengthen the routing plane (my router is quite heavy) and to prevent the inner frame from tilting around. I made them so that when setting the inner frame to the lowest position, it is possible to tilt it out to attach the fretboard that one wants to work on . I try to send you a picture.
Hi Pertti! Great improvements and thanks for your feedback!!! 🙂 It’s warms my heart to see that it can be useful for others and that an idea can progress and get better. Good work and thanks again!
Yes! I will make this. Thank you!
