This could be git related or not. So, what's on your workbench at the moment?

I have 4 scarf joint necks in different stages of work.

A 25" scale pine 5 string neck for a Banjo-Res, A 25" scale Red Oak neck for my 6 string Strat-Res build, A 24 & 1/2" scale Red Oak neck for my 6 string Double Cut Tele build and a 27" scale 6 string Baritone Conversion neck for a Modern Strat body I have.

I have some old ones that, they’re made out of hickory, also made in Chicago. Seems like they last forever?

Hickory does seem to last and practically no give whatsoever.

Oak might also be a good candidate if I hadn't already mentioned it.

Some aluminum channel or tube pieces might also work.

Hi, Here's a simple way to get long reach clamps. I figure all woodworkers would have at least a couple of the sliding bar type of clamps.

I just made up two arms out of some scrap pallet timber, took 10-15minutes, and fitted them to the existing clamp, they are easily removable. 

One bolt, one corner bracket bent to suit and a couple of screws, job done.

Taff

;)

Stewmac sent me a $15 gift certificate for Christmas so I have 2 - 250k pots and 4 - 500k pots coming in the mail. Then I'll get around to having a couple of short scale tennis racket gits in the works, one will be all wood and one will be mostly metal reso using one of the aluminum turntable platters and metal racket. WhooHoo

Got them this morning - all "A" pots. No "B" pots or even a mix. I remember ordering and there wasn't a option on the order page, I thought I'd at least get half and half mix, I guess they were out of the "B" pots. At least they are the full size ones anyway.

I got ripped off big time with this same situation. Like you I know there's a real difference between the two. And when you want it right you need it right.
