"I just had a quick look, i suspect these are too long for your saw, [ 11"], but it gives you some idea what to look for, the 0.023"  is 23 thousandths of an inch kerf width, length and depth will always be a fair bit…"

"I'm not in the states Janis, so i can't help you with suppliers, but, i would say you will be able to get a blade with a .023 blade, as mine came new with one, if all else fails, you can get a saw doctor to widen the kerf a bit, or even…"

darryl kernaghan replied to Ducati Scotty's discussion Tone control on inexpensive pre-wired pickups. Is it worth it?
"Scott, tone controls are hard to get value out of, firstly, most pots used on cbg's are cheap chinese stuff, often not working well to start with, then the value of the capacitor has to match the tone area you are seeking, and there's many…"

darryl kernaghan replied to Colin Trundle's discussion Hubcap grounding issues
"That sounds like a bad joint, or even a bad lead from git to amp, crackle almost always indicates something moving or intermittant contact, and sometimes a bad pot, eliminate them 1 by 1, I'd start by checking your lead with another git, then,…"

darryl kernaghan replied to Mike Whitney's discussion Round peizo... feeling underwhelmed.

Time to learn .

"Your .50 might be just a bit tight Jeff, but i'd think it will be doable Gitty's med wire is best with an o.23" kerf, or about.058 mm"

darryl kernaghan replied to Rupe Power's discussion Pickup Height

P.S. Darryl hi, by chance I came across the comment you sent on August 5, 2016 to Phil Hale: «Just for a clarification...» See my posting «Ok Scott, let's speak about ethics and respect...» and the discussion that followed from December 31, 2016 in «joes flatpickup». Seems I'm alone to speak clear text with our friend: his best contribution to low impedance pickup design would be to shut up for a month and study a textbook about elementary electrotechnics. Or is this thread kind of electrotechnical kindergarden? Have a good day!

Darryl hi, we have lost a lot of the early discussions because the license plate pickup thread has disappeared. SO SAD, TOTAL DISASTER!

I know exactly what you mean, I think a few people came to the same conclusion, including me.
Take Care

Hey Darryl , you're a  lucky bunch of buggers over there . I only found CW Stoneking by accident last summer while looking at some "Blues" section in HMV Bristol ... which typically touts Joe Bonamassa stuff lol ! I was'nt on line apart from work so took a chance on buying all 3 cd's at once and wasn't let down . I was drawn in partly  by the imagery and the fact the guy has a reclaimed valve amp called Kelvin ;-)

Hi There Darryl ! Thanks for the nice compliment ! Glad you liked it, you must bee wondering down under whats that dutchie got to do whit Old Ned, got me a Sister living on Tasmania Australia  ,when you got famely living there you tend to get more in to the lay of the land so to speak, but for real i got interested in the story way back in the 60 when mick Jagger started making a movie about him,( Like the Other one better Tho) Thanks & Greeeeettsszzz A.D.

Thanks for the add mate - weird, I thought we already were too! Would appreciate some pics thanks. I will be attempting a neck through for my first attempt, and, lacking a router I will be attempting to cut the cavities with a drill and chisels :)
