    Default An alternative

    I woke up this morning...Da Der Der Da Dum. ...with this idea in my head for a less expensive String Spacing Gauge ...this is a simple version of my delux model and anyone with a bit of mechanical knowledge can make one...this one I made from 1/4 steel strips and copper rivets, but other materials ..Brass, Aluminium etc will do the job just as well...Please Note I will not be making these to sell

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    Dang 5mm holes really are too big to make the sticks thin enough to be usable as a uke nut spacer. Leaves too little along the sides to make a sensibly strong narrow enough spacer. If I got the strips much narrower it would be pretty flimsy. I also should have noticed the holes are 20mm apart in one direction and 25 in the other. I used the 20mm direction which made things slightly worse. 20210525_161532.jpg

    Sometimes it pays to keep going even when you know it is wrong, only to find out you may not be as dumb as you thought you were.
    Looking a lot better. I was wondering what I was going to do with the rest of these shelf stays I bought a squillion size bag for my kitchen shelves. I'll trim em down and peen them over. A little more trimming and rounding over is in order too. 20210525_211717.jpg
