    Yesterday was my anniversary, and my wife and I took a daytrip north on I-5. Along the way we stumbled into the Grizzly showroom in Bellingham, WA. While there I learned that I had an anniversary gift waiting that I needed to pick up and take home:

    plus this attachment:

    This will greatly reduce my time spent radiusing a fingerboard, and I am real excited to be adding this to my shop ... but even more so, I am totally blown away by a wife who is soooooo supportive of my bass building activities. :hyper: There's not many out there like her, and I'm blessed beyond belief.

    All the best,

    Is the pic on the bottom a fixture for doing radii? If so can you set the ends up differently from each other so as to do a compound radius?

    exactly - a compound radius fingerboard in +/- 10 minutes :hyper:

    now I can make a run of 2+ necks in a batch and have consistency between each one - even if they have a compound radius. :bassist: :bassist: :bassist:


    All the best,

  7. that is WAY COOL! I know when Hambone sees that photo of the radius attachment those gears in his head are going to start turning, saying..."I can do that."

    bless your little heart...
