Hi SG,
Thanks for the friendship.
The information you sent is exactly what I am after so thanks again.
All I need now is a DPDT switch which I will go looking for now.
Best regards,
Hogs.

Just printed it and stuck it together and it looks quite good. It seems relatively easy to build so when I can get back to my workshop I might just have a go. Thanks again for the info.

Thanks for the info. I will have a go as soon as my wife has recovered from her illness to let me back in my workshop. I will let you know as, and when, it is built but don't hold your breath too long.

Thanks for the drawings.
I will play with them later and do what you said with the tape.
Many thanks.

Hi, Just seen that you have a simple drawing for a lap steel.
I would be very interested in having a copy if it is not too much bother.
Never made one, played one, or even touched one, but I am interested.
Hogs.
