well UGers fear not. As some of you may know I've been on a bit of a hiatus lately due to trying to secure some consulting contracts around the country after losing my full time job by telling off my japanese manager. Some things to update, though. Otter bought a couple TDM pickups (whom has recently also changed his name i noticed...), I've sold some parts to a few UGers with good results (or so they say!) and I've solidified 2 highly lucrative customer accounts - one of which is local and one that is an 80 mile drive into pennsylvania... not bad! My V is almost ready as well... drilled the headstock holes yesterday now I just have to final sand and spray!

The best of it all, though... (aside from my new Sony Vaio laptop with its wonderful 18.4" HD screen [ftw]) is the bandsaw I picked up today... feast your eyes on my $100 purchase... an old Delta made in USA 14" bandsaw

HEY! I have that guy at my school!

Way to go Phil, things are lookin up man, pretty soon we'll being seeing TDM pickups behind our local music store counters, I hope!

My other guitar parts from Kyle are on their way, so you get an official sound demo in a few months.

You got that for $100?

Used tools for the win!

hell yea man. $100 bucks. it's missing the little disc that covers the center hole in the table and i'm going to put a riser block on it but other than that it's solid and runs smoothly.

hopefully someday the guitars and pickups will find their way into homes around the world... doesn't hurt to dream I suppose. For now I gotta make my money the old fashioned way though lol.

If by "clean" you mean "get a finger right up in there and do a good bit of spelunking" then i guess "at any given opportunity" is my answer.

i dunno how i managed to pick it up so cheap... it's possible it's a saw the guy used to cut up his wife or some sh*t, who knows. i'll have to check for signs of DNA. But for 100 bucks, as long as the damn thing don't stink like rotting ex-wife, it's cool

That's supposed to be a triforce, right? :p

As said before, paint it yellow.

i'm contemplating it.

it's the delta emblem... but it looks very zelda-esque.

craigslist is no good for finding women... they're either fake bots, old hags or men doing "the tuck"

rad man, i ran into alot of problems with my used bandsaws, make sure the wheels are in good condition and stay aligned, and you probably need to flatten the table if it has rust deposits on it.

but SICK
#19
yea its all just surface rust. i'll give it a rub down with a flat stone and some scotch brite. i have it strapped to the hand truck still. i'll take care of it when i get back from PA.

Oh, and I search through the W4W section on CL... they show foliage on there

...and who hasn't done "the tuck" at least once in their life?...

dude.... the w4w section made me laugh so hard. I saw big black titties, pussy and some tantalizing pictures....

What's even funnier is the baltimore ones with pictures.

They're all black! I laughed my ass off. Thank you for my new source of humor!

I think my grade school had that bandsaw in the janitor's office

Dude! This has nothing to do with anything on here, but you know that guy on the Shamwow commercial? Well now he's on a commercial for a food chopper and cheese grater!

EDIT: Oh, and dude, for future reference, do you make black pickups?

I think everyone should go to a CL W4w section....

so much better than the baltimore one.

I got wood, now I think I can trip to the lumber yard for the next build. lol

quick update to my new purchase... tomorrow it will be blessed with the delta 6" riser block and a 3/4" resaw blade (as well as the missing spacer in the table). I just got back from a week in PA and i'm anxious to see this thing cut!
