  1. Re: Stewmac router binding jig - experiences anyone?

    I agree Buckhorn. It is a nerve wracking process when one comes to creating binding ledges. I think Mikey's design is a good one. It is practical cheap and flexible. I like his cradle design...
  2. Re: Stewmac router binding jig - experiences anyone?

    Thanks for the pictures Mike. As soon as My Makita 700C arrives I will start on it and send pictures. Where do you get that great pulley wheel from?
  3. Re: Stewmac router binding jig - experiences anyone?

    Ok. I will have a crack at it. What length of drawyer runners should I get? There are some on Amazon. It is pretty remote here. I like your guitar body cradle. How did you get your F5 on there?...

    Here he is using a POF52 Bosch trimmer riding straight on the edge of the instrument:

  5. Re: Stewmac router binding jig - experiences anyone?

    Lovely piece of kit Mikey. Thanks for showing it to me. Does the router ride and up down its mount rather than site in one position? I have seen Andy Tobin's jig does that.
  6. Stewmac router binding jig - experiences anyone?

    Has anyone had experience a with the Stewmac router binding jig?. I want to use it for a range of instruments mainly flatop instruments like ukeleles, Irish Bouzoukis, spanish guitars, and arch...

    Re: In search of a mandolin...

    I have stumbled upon a really interesting thread that CMChaney started. I think I understand his pallete of tones he is seeking in a mandolin.

    If you have a really nice Italian-made violin then...
  8. Re: Where have all the Irish bouzouki / cittern players gone to?

    Thanks to Dagger and Catmandu for your musical preferences and background. I play my Irish Bouzoukis in a range of musical genres ever since started playing them in the early 1980s.

    I use them as...

    Re: Tuning issues - Octave Mandolin

    Very simply the Hora Instruments don't have an intonated bridge. I swapped out the simple narrow bridge on a APC B305 Irish bouzoukiand put on one one that I made. Result intonation is perfect.

  10. Re: Where have all the Irish bouzouki / cittern players gone to?

    So David what would pique your interest in Irish Bouzoukis? Instruments, good video instructions on how to play them,. Other musically genres on Greek or Irish bouzouki?

    I really enjoyed Andy...
  11. Re: Where have all the Irish bouzouki / cittern players gone to?

    It is good to see that this thread has sparked some interest in Bouzoukis. I like Scott's comments that Facebook is nothing more than an embellished listserve.

    There have been some very...
  12. Re: Where have all the Irish bouzouki / cittern players gone to?

    No I didn't and didn't mean to exclude you either. Surely there must be more people here playing both types of bouzoukis.

    Re: Irish/Portuguese Bouzouki

    Back to the OP. I can confirm the following specs for the 305 and 308 bouzoukis.

    Tuning – gG DD AA DD can be set up as GG DD AA DD
    Nut width – 37 mm
    Width of Fingerboard at Neck Join: 49 mm...
  14. Re: Where have all the Irish bouzouki / cittern players gone to?

    No response so far. I think this confirms my idea that they have gone. Octave mandolins and mandocellos have taken over which is fine.
  15. Where have all the Irish bouzouki / cittern players gone to?

    I have noticed little if any response to Irish Bouzoukis posts. I believe now that the Irish Bouzouki Facebook Page has drawn away members from here. There are now 4300 members on that forum. One...

    Re: Irish/Portuguese Bouzouki

    It a bit of an anachronism yet still in the type of cittern, mandola, or octave mandolin. He seems polite to me for the most part.

    Re: Irish/Portuguese Bouzouki

    Hi Dagger,

    At least there is be other person here who plays Irish bouzouki / Scottish octave mandolin. Maybe Sobell's instruments should be called Scottish bouzoukis because they were taken up...

    Re: Irish/Portuguese Bouzouki

    Are there any Irish Bouzouki players still out there on the forum or have we all gone to the Irish Bouzouki Facebook page?

    We used to have great discussions here once upon a time.

    Re: Irish/Portuguese Bouzouki

    Here is I think an earlier version of the PTB305 Irish Bouzouki. It is an APC755 model made in 2012.

    You can hear Niilo Sirola play an hour of Irish Bouzouki music. There is a second version of...

    Re: Irish/Portuguese Bouzouki

    I would agree with that statement. The Irish bouzouki model sounds a bit thin to me.
