    Good idea, since I have a clamp like that. All I need is the gauge.

    A cheapie dial indicator will do fine in this application. You shouldn't have to spend more than $20. Think "Harbor Freight".

    The aluminum clamp frame is a big plus. An iron frame is a bit heavy and would make the tool a little unwieldy.

    And the lever that the $190 deluxe model has isn't necessary, which simplifies the construction considerably.

    No not another please tell me I have purchased a bargain post. I know exactly what this is. A souvenir grade Leolani soprano ukulele shaped object with cracked and broken friction tuners. Luckily I have some close to matching $1.37 friction tuners off Ebay. A couple of minutes fiddling on the drill with a sharp blade so the bottom of the knob fits inside the base of the friction tuner. Three knobs replaced and tuned it up. Lowered the action at the nut and left the lowering of the saddle to another day.
    Not every uke looks beautiful. Not every uke sounds beautiful. But this uke will make music again. This uke made me smile and I hope it made you smile too.

    I purchased this uke about twenty years ago, after I heard Jim Beloff, as guest on Minnesota Public Radio, expounding the virtues and ease of playing of the ukulele. Well, twenty years later, I know now that he lied, at least about the playing part, since I still can't play the darn thing!
    Anyway, I decided to "upgrade" this cheapo uke that I paid $75 for. It's an all plywood Greg Bennett, with a concert size body and a soprano neck! I plan on replacing the top with spruce and perhaps decreasing the body depth, which is now 2 3/4"
