RE: 19th century spirit guitar (in reply to estebanana

I built this solera to make the first (prototype) of this model in a few minutes not thinking it would last, not investing time is a proper hobbyists over production of a fixture. 😂

Now I have a need for a more stable solera, but instead of building a new one that looks formal and guitar magazine worthy, I tore down and rebuilt the fast and dirty original solera I threw on the junk pile.

I added substantial 1 x 4 spine and replaned the neck angle into the neck extension. It’s stiffened from end to end and I added some old vertical pillars to guide the ribs into some semblance of parallel and that’s it.

It’s not what the boutique guitar magazines are looking for, and that’s perfect with me.

Most of my jigs fixtures etc are like this, took the plunge a disassembled a few I no longer use, fed the little bits to the wood stove and repurposed some of the useful plywood already.

It’s an effecancy to balance the time and the quality of a need. I had to back step a few times with my Anders inspired wall mounted belt sander the other day, remember how he used a small portable belt sander clamped in his bench vise: pure genius! I bought one just like his but built a wall mount and box to catch the dust but in keeping with the spirit it’s clamped in the box with a cheap bar clamp 👍🏼 Both of my fox like rib benders use Anders inverted bar clamp too, he was so, so Dutch ;)


I prefer my flamenco guitar spicy,
doesn't have to be fast,
should have some meat on the bones,
can be raw or well done,
as long as it doesn't sound like it's turning green on an elevator floor.

Danish really.

I did the clamp a belt sander to my bench a long time ago in school. For some reason this isn’t really good for the bearings in the sander to run without resistance of a surface offering friction to the sandpaper belt. I’m interested in knowing how long this sander will last. Let me know when the motor shaft bearings overheat and jamb.

Other than that carry on Bush Pilot
