Anybody care to share their favorite techniques?
I've tried a few things that have only produced marginal results.
Dremel with a router bit, Dremel with an 1/8" bit... lots of wobble. I just cut a nice slot on my table saw and that might be the best way for me.... still, I see these slots cut in that look like they were done with a plunge router but with smaller bits than the 1/4"...
Any advice appreciated!
Yeah, I was talking about saddle slots... sorry for the lack of clarity.
But, advise on slotting the bridge is good, too.
Shawn, what did you use to cut your plexiglass template?
Get yourself a set of diamond cutoff bits for your dremel, slickist way i know how to do it. I have a nut file and use that to mark the spot, then take the dremel and light touch the bone with the bit. With the wound strings you can move it back and fourth a tad to widdin the slot. Plus the surface of the diamond wheel works great as a sander for shaping bone. Thats what i use to cut my bone blanks into nuts and saddles.
