CBN brothers and sisters,
some of you may know i'm down to just my index finger on my right hand. really stinks cause i can't even pick my nose with my left hand, so i'm learning to be left handed. don't want to quit building though. slowly figuring outbhow to use tools left handed, but here is where i need help. i need some patterns for tailpieces, string spacing, any workable jigs or anything that would help a 1 handed guy's building experience easier. i already have someone who would/has soldered for me in the past(thanks wes) and i know soe of you have patterns fortailpieces etc. any help will be appreciated as i still want to build and ship to our servicemen. thanks in advance

Mark, I have some headstock pattern images I could send you. Will that help? I could also make up a few neck blanks, and round over the backs on my router for you. I have both red oak and maple 1x2s handy. Just lemme know and they are yours.
We've never really conversed before and I'm not very good with words.
With your situation, there's still room in your heart to think of others. You sir is what this world is lacking and I truly hope you're able to get some projects underway soon. Not only for your sake but also the folks who could benefit from your kind acts.
Not sure what I may have that could help but I'll be looking around the shop today with you in mind.
Not exactly what you're asking for but I do have plenty of boxes to spare. I'd be happy to get a few in the mail this week.
ui don't see/type well but i'd love to talk about some things. you can message me your phone # AND I'LL CALL IF YOU DON'T MIND, IT'S MUCH EASIER THAN HAVING MY WIFE TYPE FOR ME. THANKS
