    Electric Bass Guitar Build

    Thread Starter: Julie Moriarty

    My SO wants a bass guitar. And I'm getting bored watching the lacquer cure on the other guitar. :) I took some 1:1 scaled drawings of bass guitars, glued them to 1/4" MDF, and started cutting templates.

    Need help with Chinese Laser

    Thread Starter: Jeffrey Michael Wilson

    Hi, I have a 50 watt Chinese laser. Haven't had it very long. Today I was burning some things, then all of a sudden....no laser. Like no power to laser. Power supply fan and light working. I'm wondering about the water sensor. I have the brass and silver red cap kind. I'm wondering if maybe it...
