Finished two oak scarf joints last week and after clamping I always lay the neck on its side against parchment paper so it won't stick. After about an hour I remove and clean up any excess glue and…Continue

"I can recommend getting a set of oblique hole countersink bits. The look slighty different from other countersink bits and have the almost magical power to self depth limit based on the outer diameter of the bit being smooth and solid. You do need…"

"I do know how to speak English! For the loose fitting holes, use a toothpick and a dab of glue to give the threads some bite. Next time use a lightly smaller bit and go a little deeper."

Taffy Evans replied to Brent Kasl's discussion Screw Inlays
"Hi Brent, the way I would do it is to countersink by hand, let the screw embed itself into the hole then with a sanding block level all the screws at the same time. Come finer with the sanding grit for a better finish.  Brass screws look great…"

"Short piece of toothpick and a dab of glue also sounds like hole should be just a smidgen deeper. Same with the counter sink."

Screw Inlays

Before I do any more potential damage, need direction from group. When installing screw inlays, I followed a video that showed stepped drill diameters and removing top for countersinking screw head.I have several that do not tighten down and are not flush with fretboard. Do I need to go to a larger diameter screw, add some sawdust or glue to the hole? Any help appreciatedSee More

"Check all the solder joints for good solder flow, if they have a gobbed appearance they aren't good. Could also be your cord."

"Thanks I tried to bleach out with not much success so my guess is it's tannins in the wood brought to the surface Isnt too noticeable after clear coat"

Taffy Evans replied to Brent Kasl's discussion Glue Mold???
"Hi Brent, I've had this and put it down to two things, tanins in the oak or my metal clamps touching the glue line and causing the stain. Any way I always let the glue get very close to set before removing and ooze out, so the contaminated bits…"

Will "KOOL DOG HOOCH" Bonner replied to Brent Kasl's discussion Grounding Issues
"Try a temporary placement of a.001uf cap across the jack or pot and see if that helps, that is if grounding the strings doesn't work. You may lose a little of the hi's, but you will eliminate a lot of trash noise."

Tom T replied to Brent Kasl's discussion Grounding Issues
"My experience is that Piezos are very inconsistent in the noise department. I've used some that are very quiet and others (in the same type circuit) be very buzzy. Can't say I know way. One thing I did notice is that a Piezo will be noisy…"

Grounding Issues

I give up.Have a dual piezo based three string with bone nut and bridge. Has a hum when plugged in, strongest when I touch input, so I replaced potentiometer, input jack, grounded pot to itself and to jack and still has slight hum. Compared it to several others I have and they are very quiet. Any ideas appreciated. Have not grounded the strings but I was under the impression piezo setups do not need strings grounded, plus not sure if it matters.See More

Myron Joe Hickel replied to Brent Kasl's discussion Glue Mold???
"Brent, I don't think you are dealing with mold. Oak has tannic acid within it and may be what you are dealing with. A good wood bleach from your local home improvement store will help remove it. Another possiblity is the glue you are using, TB…"

T-Gripped replied to Brent Kasl's discussion Glue Mold???
"I have used oak for several scarf joints and have not experienced this... I wonder about bleach not vinegar. But either way, try to test on scrap. I am fond of distressing the wood. In that view, they may be features, not blemishes."
