    Re: Pomeroy Website Hacked?

    I'm happy you got it fixed. I tried a google search again and got through to your site this time. The spam version still shows up as an option, but it's no longer an issue.

    Pomeroy Website Hacked?

    I've been trying to check out new Pomeroy mandolins, and for the last few days at least, his web address comes up with "health" products for men. Anyone have an email address for him, Don, I think...

    Re: Collings MT-O v Gibson A: Any Opinions?

    Thank you Charles. I only had access via my phone at the time and it's tedious to provide links that way. I assumed a quick reply was at least somewhat helpful.

    Re: Waterlox Marine High Gloss

    I guess I need to do some research on varnishing! I assumed (first mistake) that varnish could be applied like a wipe-on poly. I've applied spar varnish that way, but not on something where finish...

    Re: Waterlox Marine High Gloss

    Okay. I'll look into that. I have a large enough compressor in my garage and a couple of small spray guns, but my workshop is a nearby converted one-horse stable, too small for a spray setup. I...

    Re: Waterlox Marine High Gloss

    Ah, okay. Not having a proper spraying setup at this point, I'd probably resort to applying the varnish with a rag, but I can certainly follow your sequence. Thank you!

    Re: Waterlox Marine High Gloss

    So John, just to recap your process....you begin with a couple of light coats of shellac with sandarac, apply Epifanes Gloss Clear Marine Varnish (with rag, I assume), and finish with Tru-Oil?

    I'm...

    Re: Convert Grover 309N Tuners to Worm Under?

    Just to close the loop, the Gotoh tuners from LMI are indeed worm under. They arrived today. Thanks, Mike!

    Re: Convert Grover 309N Tuners to Worm Under?

    Hi Carl,

    I've been sitting here twisting a Grover tuner in all kinds of ways. You're right. I think my memory of doing this on an inexpensive banjo kit, or maybe a mountain dulcimer, involved ...

    Yes! Those Gotoh's even say "reverse gearing." It certainly looks like the worm gears are leaning the correct direction. Thank you Mike!! I'll double check and then get an order off. Thankfully,...

    Yeah, that would have a been a good way to go. Unfortunately I've already drilled eight perfectly spaced holes for the modern spacing. I've contacted Rubner's about their worm-under offerings and...

    Re: Convert Grover 309N Tuners to Worm Under?

    I have room on the peghead to install the tuners as worm-over, but they're going to look a bit funky since I located the holes assuming worm-under. It puts the keys a bit too close to the end of the...

    Nice. Thanks for posting those. I mispoke in my reply above. The current spec is .906". It appears Rubner has them in worm-under, but I'm going to go out to the workshop and look once more at how...

    I thought if I could get these apart that I could flip both the worm and ring gears between the two mounting brackets to get what I want. However, I...

    Convert Grover 309N Tuners to Worm Under?

    I'm finishing mandolins 2 and 3 in my budding building hobby, based on the Gibson Army/Navy style from Crystal Forest plans. I decided to strike out boldly and experiment with a snakehead version on...
  19. Re: Truss rod: Too tight? And still a string-ward bow.

    As a beginning builder and so far using metal or carbon bars for reinforcement, it occurs to me that if an adjustable truss rod is installed, it should at least be snugged up to counteract the...

    Are there standard radii used along the neck for the compound profile? I wouldn't expect much variation as short as the mandolin neck is. Do many just use a constant radius? It would seem to...
