Thanks for this… I’ve been searching for a good calculator.
Thanks, building an electric guitar from bits in the shed. Not sure if my Dovetail saw can cut to plus or minus 0.01mm but great to have the ideal answer. The 20 fret Shedocaster made by the Splinter Guitar Co. is about to be fretted using the rolled edges from a tin box of biscuits.
It’s a great idea to use the rolled edges from a biscuit tin but do you think it will be robust enough? I can imagine the tube getting compressed.
Fantastic I can now build whatever I want ??
Thanks for your time doing this.
