Making a glue scraper/saw

Dan Erlewine went to the Columbus Guitar Show to sell some fixer-uppers. Nobody bought this beautiful 1930s Kay Deluxe; its neck joint problem must have seemed like too much work. The guitar came back home and volunteered for this Trade Secret about making a tiny saw for cleaning old glue joints!

Great quality on an essential set of saws!

Stetting up a bone nut was never so easy until I got the set and the layout ruler. After the first nut I used these on, my confidence and speed increased significantly. Highly recommended if your building 1 or 100 nuts.

My Gauged Saws are my work horses. I love them!

The Gauged Saws are a must have in a Luthier's workshop. I like the quality and versatility of these saws. They can be used to roughing in new nut slots and then smooth them with abrasive cords, the Double-edge nut files or the Gauged Nut Slotting files.

Setup is one of the most common service performed in a Luthiers workshop and you can imagine all the money that could be spent if the Gauged and Double edge's nut files were used to roughing in nut slots. You can even use these saws to cut nut and saddles to size and even braces and other small wood pieces. These files are economical and won't make a whole in your wallet if you have to replace one. I love them!
