OM 45

Post by tippie53 »

finishing up an OM
to do the 45 you have to do a few things
A set all your miters Neck and tail
B note that the B/W PEARL and B/W/B are not the same as the binding so figure the width of the binding on the side , so binding purfling and pearl cut that at .050 , then raise the cutter to the binding and cut that at .065 that way you have the pearl flush to the side and the binding a tad under , sand flat you will get a better pearl surface
