Timothy Hunter replied to default's discussion Need 3 string shovel help
"this is your mistake i think. the angle iron is not 1" it look cut down to 1/2" or maybe 3/8". that assumption is what is making you think the first fret mark is 3"from the nut.. it does look 3 times the nut height…"

"i think the first thing you need to do is go shovel shopping... find one with a nice flat length from handle to halfway down the blade... ultimately this will determine the range of scale length you could make."
