GizmoWiz & CutSetter

The home-grown CutSetter came out of a need in a moulding manufacturing shop, and as discussed on here previously (here, and here) has been developed into a commercial product.  Recently, GizmoWiz (who make the CutSetter) have updated their website, and their online shopping cart.

They have also released some more products, particularly around fretboard layout, and some variations of the CutSetter.

Check out their updated website

Now as a special, GizmoWiz are offering Stu’s Shed readers a 20% discount until the end of November (2010).  All you have to do is enter the coupon code ‘rout’ on checkout.

Lutherie made a little easier

Interested in lutherie? It certainly takes a special breed of woodworker to produce musical instruments. The precision, the finish, and the end result is a constantly used tool, not something decorative on a shelf.

The latest edition to the CutSetter range is a pair of fretboard gauges. These are used by instrument makers/repairers to check the curvature across a fretboard. As well as being used when making a guitar, they can be used to find the radius of an existing fretboard. They are the first in a range of instrument measuring tools CutSetter are going to introduce.

Speaking of which, the CutSetter now has a “Professional” in metric or inch units, and a “Compact” in metric or inch units. The Compact has a size range suited for router table setup, and doesn’t have any angle markings.
