For easy abalone purfling installation!
The "slick" way to install abalone purfling strips.

Rout the ledges along the edge of the guitar, sandwich a no-stick strip between the bindings, and glue and tape them in place. When dry, pull out the no-stick strip and glue the purflings into the channel. Fast and easy!

The strip is .062" x .095" x 36" (1.68mm x 2.41mm x 914mm) and made of non-stick Teflon®.

Filler strip

An inexpensive invaluable aid in creating a uniform channel for the pearl

I don't think I have never seen anything so roughly cut - expected to receive item with reasonably clean edges, but they look like a dog's breakfast! Will require more work than making them.

Works great

This Teflon stripping work really really well for its intended job of temporary purfling filling to make way for shell. I also use it in rosette making to pull the bwb's tight around the shell. I also use it for various non stick CA glue jobs. Can be reused

Does what it says, but easily damaged

This makes pearl installation a breeze, but I found that even though it does not adhere to glue, great care is required to remove it from the purfling channel without kinking. I might get two tops done with one before I have to replace it.
