Making my first neck - this one for a uke in Osage Orange. It is easy to flatten the face of the peghead, but thinning it in a consistent manner is not so easy. So I built a jig for use on my small belt sander. I have seen things like this but never gave it much thought until I had to make one:


This will do the same duty as a "luthier's friend" or a safe-t-planer'.

Your belt sander feed jigs looks very useful.

Ed, I've been using a drum sander in my drill press to accomplish this task, but I like the idea of using the 4" wide combo belt sander. I use mine with a jig to make my steel string bridge wings, so this is similar.

I made one of those for my Daughter's shop, but decided the added capacity of the wider belt would be helpful. I can still use this belt sander jig for bridges
