Hello all

I am after some brass eyelets for sound holes, no problem finding them in the 0.5 - 0.75 inch sort of range.

I am trying to find some in the 1.5 - 2.0 inch range, but not really having any luck.

Where do you folks get yours?

Thanks in advance.

I love that little box 'offcut' in the background :)

Denis, I will try and sort outa photo  soon, I am so happy with the finished guitar, they work great.


I looked at sink strainers then I found little loose tea holders that come on a chain. They are two halves of a ball that clip togerther that you put loose tea in and dunk them into the cup. There's a wire mesh that stops the leaves going into the cup but they split in half to form two one inch cup things. I used them on my first build and are just excellent for size and stuff. You can check out the pictures, it's in my profile somewhere. I got them out of my flatmates kitchen drawer she said she on them in a christmas cracker :) but they worked so good I bought two on ebay for late use.
