StewMac Miter Blade for Binding

About This Item

One of the surest signs of quality guitar building is clean, perfect miter joints in the binding. No matter how carefully you build, when the miters aren't sharp it makes a poor impression.

Guitar repairman and builder Dan Erlewine came up with this clever blade for use in your drill press or our Fret Arbor Press. It's extremely sharp and cuts wood or plastic bindings in one clean stroke.

"For wooden bindings, I cut first with a fine saw then use the Miter Blade to shave it to the precise miter." — Dan Erlewine

Sturdy brass housing with 3/8" (9.53mm) shank.
Stainless steel blade is 3/4" (19.05mm) wide.
Blade can be removed for sharpening.

So So Tool

By

Verified Buyer


Ok, it works, but there are some drawbacks
1) Yes, as another indicated, you'll probably want to use a fence to get a precision cut
2) I used it in conjunction with my drill press, Maybe I missed something in the instructions, but as I did some of my first test pieces, I noticed the the chuck would turn as I applied pressure for the cut.This resulted in a bad cut.

Good addition

It works better than a hand chisel but needs to be put against a fence to keep the cut square

Looks good seems to work

Is sharp as delivered, seems to be very well-built and seems to work well I'm just some testing. Trims ends better than cuts mid binding. Will be using for real on some Bubinga binding in the next few weeks and will write another review then

Another Annoyance Mitigated

The thing stays perfectly vertical. A hand held chisel cannot be trained to do so. You get a quality mitre/joint in fewer attempts.
