This one will be handy if you are like me and do some model making where hand drills are "handy" for drilling soft materials. Also useful for reamers which I use when changing the tuners in some guitar headstocks. No more sore hands from reaming.

@Redbrickman I told you @stratman was a Cute Hoor and would see through our plot to rope him into 3D printing, I reckon we’ll need more strings to our guitar..:barnie

A backhanded compliment from The Hat is still a compliment. Hell hath surely frozen over and my Cleveland Browns will win the Superbowl this year. :ya

I'll need to give that one a try!

This one I printed very early on when I first started. Handy and a GREAT show-off piece for 3D printing:

... and the other day I took the prongs / clamp part and used it to design (in tinkercad) a cool piece to hold a cable coming out of my chicken coop!

like repairing them, electric that is
:thumbsup

My brother could use your services. His 90's Jap Strat, a well made and once well playing guitar, suffered a bumpy ride down the stairs and needs a new nut, a crack repair in the neck and a scratchy pot that needs some attention.

Do you make house calls in the US? ;)

No, not at the moment as I have no desire to sit in a metal tube with lots of others breathing out their possibly Covid contaminated breath :) Not especailly as some research has shown that AirCon can redistribute the smaller Covid particles :eek:

That sounds like one worth repairing though, and it has a story to tell now! The 90's Japanese Strats were well made, in fact all Japanese Strats are great quality. They make a great Strat in the Fujigen factory which has made many famous makes under licence, and they sell their own Strat now under the Brand name FGN...
