Set #11 Building trussrods, attaching necks, routing pickup

Postby EFElliott » Sat Jan 31, 2009 8:29 pm

Well it's time to make the truss rods, I like to have them installed in the necks before I glue them in the bodies. We're going to cut 3/16" round rod into 18" lenths, Thread one end with a 10-32 die, bend a 45 on the end of the 1/8th X 1/4th flat stock, and drill a hole in it so the round rod can pass through, weld one end, I make the truss rod nuts out of 1/4" hex, drill, tap and saw into 1/2" lenths "Wa La" Adjustable truss rods.

Well, the glue is dry, I've pulled all of my clamps off, took my Sears and Roebuck router and a couple of routing Jig I've made, routed all the pickup cavitys, the two '59 Maphis' are also routed for a recessed vibrato units "Just like the originals", I've drilled all the holes for the pickup wires and the ground wires that go under the vibratos. I like to get all this done before I start painting.
