The idea for our first cutter came from a guitar build. We were confident we could make a tool for shaping guitar bodies that was better than anything on the market. A router bit that would produce the best possible finish and minimise the need for sanding. We launched our 4 flute trimmer and quickly developed a loyal following of craftsmen that required the ultimate finish.
Fast forward to today and we are receiving orders from across the world from Cabinet Makers & Craftsmen to Hobby Guitar Builders & Professional Luthiers. Since the first tool, we have developed many others that Guitar builders in particular would appreciate. The list below gives advice on what tools to use to get great results;
Guitar bodies: our original 4 Flute trimmer will give an amazing template edge finish and with both nose and shank bearings you can always cut "downhill" with the grain.
Neck pockets & Pickup / Control cavities: Our short 3 flute plunge cutter is very versatile with an extra long shank for deeper cuts. The smaller plunging cutters are great for finishing off into tighter radii down to a 3.2mm radius
Pickguards: Our 3 Flute chamfer bit will perfectly bevel thinner pieces of timber, for example, custom timber pickguards.
Cavity rebates: Our 4 flute rebate cutter has many bearings included for a number of different rebate widths.
Neck & Headstock: Our 1" high dual guide trimmer is perfect for trimming thinner neck blanks. With both nose and shank guides it's very flexible when using templates.
