I have been neglecting my writing lately, obsessed with those Kashas. this morning I spent at the Archive researching and writing. Finally got into the workshop late in the afternoon. Did a retrofit on my Tentalone (lining) maker and gave it a good workout on the new bandsaw. Worked slick.
Here is the device made to cut the slots at the exact distance and depth. A little boxwood index nose clicks into the last cut stopping the stock for the next cut. All powered by a rubber band and the human hand.
Heres the hand ! The other hand (out of the picture) pushes the stock thru.
And here is the result. Lots of Basswood liners, more than enough for the tenor and the concert.
