Hi All,
I've got a pdf available detailing my method (yes, the common method...) of setting the depth of nut slots for Uke. Here's the page link, scroll down to the bottom for the most recent addition.

Very good drawing. I always tell people that the angle of the string slot should be steeper than the angle of the headstock to avoid the most annoying of buzzes. Like this (doesn't have to be purple):

Sure, it doesn't have to be purple, but can it be in English?:)

Ha ha, isn't it quite self explanatory? It's got Motörhead dots and all.

(It's a length wise section of the neck at the nut.)

Hi Sven,
I always tend to assume folks know that. I've modified the drawing and verbage to make that clear. Thanks for the suggestion!
