    Chrome plated covers are almost always going to be "triple plated" (copper then nickel then chrome over German silver). Each layer will be a mil or two thick.

    I have the measurements somewhere from 10-15 years ago. I'm surprised I haven't already posted them here. Perhaps worth checking the Ampage archives? To be honest they look a little like some of the...

    I do this sort of work all the time and have a 50mm block but not the narrower Gibson one. I would need the cover too to make a block that fits tightly enough. I don't use step drills but prefer a...

    I see cold rolled and hot rolled rod down to 1/4" diameter but no wire sizes like 3/16" for slugs. Someone will call for answers.

    If you're mass producing a particular pickup and want consistency then measuring inductance is a quick way to check for defects in the wind. Say there is an internal short in the coil where...
