I got a couple weeks home from school, so I started working on the neck I'm planning on building. I'm practicing on pine, so I don't destroy the maple I got from StewMac. The main trouble I'm having is routing channels for the truss rod and graphite sticks. I don't have a real router, so I'm using a Dremel in a router base, but it absolutely refuses to cut straight passes. I'm not even sure what it gets upset about, but if I keep going this way, my channel will be way too wide. And zig-zaggy. Ew. I'd rather not spring for a new router, if only because I don't think I'll be doing this all that often. But do I really have any alternatives? How'd they cut channels like this in the days before power tools? Much thanks.
