Needed some alterations!

By

Verified Buyer


This is a great gizmo. Don't get me wrong! But I needed it to route the binding on a new top for Gibson Mandocello, which has quite an arch to the top. So I took a trip to the hardware store and got a couple of big teflon washers to add to the router base and a longer screw to hold them on. After that it worked like a charm. The instructions for putting it together lacked a bit of detail, but I finally figured out how to do it.

Loves me some TrueChannel. I've tried a lot of different ways to rout binding channels, but this is it for me. We had several setup at the school I used to teach at for different guitars/procedures - steel string binding and purfling, classical, etc. Made it really easy to get through classes full of guitars.

An expensive tool but worth the investment. Worked well after a few practice runs on scrap timber.

True channel routing jig

By

Verified Buyer


I'm doing my first guitar kit, and was very nervous about routing these channels. This jig saved me. I'm using a Ryobi cordless trimmer, which works great with the StewMac cutter & bearings. Just do a few practice runs to get the hang of it!

Perfect for archtops

By

Verified Buyer


This jig woks perfectly for cutting the binding channels for archtops. I had major problems with cutting these before I got this jig. Now this part of the process is pretty much a piece of cake.

perfect binding job must have

having struggled with getting perfect clean binding rabbets has been a big frustration on my archtops. This solved my problem nicely. Nothing like good quality tools to improve the building experience.

Awesome, works very well with masonite as a bottom board. I have only just used it only to trim the overlap with a flush trimmer. Such a pleasure not to have to worry about the arches on the front and back throwing off the tool, no unwanted cutting. Did well with old tool on padouk. It is an excellent tool and a worthwhile investment. Rarely am I this impressed on first use. It would be 5 stars at more reasonable price.

TrueChannel Jig Product Support

By

Verified Buyer


I had previously purchased the TC Jig and put it into service. Although "working", there was more play between the rollers and post than desirable. I discussed the problem with a Stu-Mac tech. He promptly sent me a new complete post, roller, and router carriage that operates freely without the play. This level of product support is commendable.
