Sore fingers


Hero Member
Time to start rubbing this stuff out; I don't know how my fingers are going to hold up.  I need to figure out how to do final wet sand mechanically.  I can polish with the arbor but the wet sand stage is so labor intensive.  Anybody using a mechanical wet-sanding system?

The Strat and maple neck go together for a local player, the Tele is going to Jay, the Brazilian Tele neck is for my Flame Thinline and the Bass is for me also.

That's why you make the big bucks, I guess... :toothy10: There's the option of various thicknesses of densities of foam padding held by a tool face to prevent the fingertip wear. It's hard to imagine something as sensitive and situation-variable as the tips of your own fingers, though.  :sad1: Someone would have to do a lot of experimenting and burn through a lot of finishes to come up with their own "fool proof" little Polish-O-Matic - and the same thing might not work for the next guy, either.
I totally understand Tonars wish for a mechanical sandinding system, I have wet sanded an entire automobile, '78 Camero. it's a messy process.

If you could invent a guitar sanding machine that will do a fine wet sand,  the world will beat a path to your door.

Swine flu? I am just recovering from it, cost me a week of work, wasn't as bad as all the hype, although I did feel like crap all week, i didn't feel like I was gonna die.

I heard a normal flu kills thousands of people and this one has killed a few hundred
Yeah... Swine flu is... flu. That's it. New stain. Same symptoms, same prevention. Me and my friends aren't freaked out about it.
Yeah I have that crap and im fine. Well im sick as hell, but no sicker than when I get the flu. Deffinately dont feel like im going to die haha.
hey.... i wore my pink floyd t-shirt to ward away any swine flu. the pig on it the flu will think im already a pig. :hello2:

edit: fix'd mistakes.
It's got the mortalilty rate of a perfectly normal flu (0,4% apparently). I guess what puts it apart is that it's more contagious than usual?
