Thank you very much Shane Speal!

Let´s all keep building!!

Very clever way of getting a glass slide sound on a lap steel. It's similar to a Weissenborn slide in concept, but much better for being home-made!

Thank you Adrian!

Wow, this is a great idea!  Thanks!

Thanks!!

What a good idea, A great thinker...

Très bonne idée, j'en fait un tout de suite... Merci

I remember when I first saw this post years ago. Great idea I had to make one for myself. Thanks for sharing and to Leo for idea.

What is the black stuff where the slide goes? 

probably rubber to grip the slide so it doesnt move around too much

ok thanks
