    I've used AES for vacuum tubes for tube amps.

    Thanks for the link! The neck cradle rest looks nice.

    Thanks Beau. Cheaper but not as cheap as I would like to see. I still can't afford my dream tools, but the price is getting cheaper.... You gotta love Capitalism. Still, there is no substitute for great customer service which trumps price in the end. Right LMI/SMD?... Ah, the brave new world of the internet. Sometimes I'm glad that I'm old and useless and just build ukuleles.

    I've been meaning to get that 300 grit diamond fret file. I was hoping the router base was going to be alot less though

    I think the bevel file looks very cool. If they showed it over a fret, that would be good.

    Yes, the router base is only $3 bucks cheaper. I do have that tool by the way, and it is nicely made and worth the price I think (sorta). I also own SMD's rosette cutter which I consider essential. It is also a nicely made tool but the price made me gulp a bit before I shelled out the cash ($81.50). As far as I can tell, it has a very nice fine brass adjustment screw, but $81 bucks! Gulp!

    I've just discovered www.aliexpress.com Based in China, free shipping for much of the stuff and some real bargains (compared to NZ prices). Prices vary widely for the same item from different vendors so don't just look at the first price. Postage takes a couple of weeks but it's pretty secure because your money doesn't transfer until you've confirmed you're happy with the item. Recommend you take a look
