So I went and bought some nice stuff:

Violin pegs, bone saddle blanks, a japanese gouge, metal friction tuners, string spacing thing (thanks Ken!), and another miniature plane.

I am so pleased with it all. Together with my new multi solera, I really look forward to 2012.

Did I show you my multi solera? I keep mixing stuff up in my head, maybe I just posted a link on facebook. Once I've tried it out a bit I'll show you.

Very nice Sven. Is the gouge for braces? I recently got a bag of those friction tuners too.

Yup, for braces it is. I prefer glueing them down unshaped and do all the work afterwards.

[NB - I have the luxury of doing this in my spare time, after my well paid day job etc etc. I enjoy chisels and planes and I don't like pre-shaping stuff on beltsanders, disc sanders, bobbin sanders and what have you.]

Man...that is very very nice. It is always a joy to "get some new tools"
haha....

Please let us know how you like that Veritas miniature shoulder plane. I also want it too, but not sure what I will use it for.

Necklace? Earring? I'd say the possibilities are endless.

I use mine to fine tune the tenons on mortise-and-tenon neck joints. Of course, the fine tuning only goes in one direction, so I'm careful to take off just a little at a time until I have a snug fit.

The "Ken tool" is worth all the rest of them. It's one of those things that make you wonder how you've gotten along without it for so long!

Where is the "wreckless cash dispersal"??
