Well he said cheap...
The only cheap way is China. And those are the same covers you're likely buying through a state-side reseller.
This post never got the love or information it deserved.
For a lower wind P-90 there's benefit of going below 60 tpl for a more dynamic tone. And for a higher wind, to keep it from being too...
The bobbins are very slightly textured and there are 2 lead holes. Judging from the tpl they are, as Helmholtz commented, post '85 something.
I have a humbucker I cannot identify. There is no magnet so that's out.
The baseplate is a 12 hole with the PAT NO 2737842 stamp.
The underside of the bobbins have an L on them.
The wire is...
Haha, no, you're correct. I was sleepy.
Black is the start and so the top would be going, which means the bobbin is spinning CW, no?
Thanks on that. It may not be double formvar (I have yet to unwrap it) but it'd have to be 43. Maybe even 10k winds.
Looks like clockwise to me but I had to remove the wax dripped...
I've got a 70's or 80's Schecter single coil in for repair (from whatever guitar/s had the metal pickguards). 3 pickup configuration like a Strat. All pickups are the same polarity and have the same...
I messaged you. Message me back!
I'm not seeing any at Allparts. Do you have a link?
The ones I have made are 5mm. I could send you one and if you need some I could include them in my next order.
How long is the short leg you are looking for?
I was completely joking about the 55. But having read it again it doesn't sound as tongue in cheek as I meant it. I should have included an emoji.
I have a list - a small list but a list - of "PAF...
1: TPL means one pass over the width of the bobbin, so one pass left to right.
2: This is a good method and it will get you used to the rhythm of your winding if you do it often enough.
Pantograph. That's exactly the kind of idea I was hoping for. Excellent.
I agree with this somewhat, but tele and strat flatwork is fairly ubiquitous with the exception of branding and coil wire slotting. It's obviously a LOT easier to figure something like this out with...
It's certainly not turning out to be easy. You don't want to share your files?
Anyone have any ideas about relatively easy and reproducible ways to engrave humbucker covers and baseplates?
Has anyone tried and/or had any success stamping a humbucker cover with a metal punch?
This is very much all new to me and I expect a steep learning curve. It's a community laser with 4 specific programs available so I will have to figure out how to convert whatever I get to those and...
I'd take whatever is available.
I now have access to a laser cutter. I'm looking for some templates in whatever available format to use. Anyone have any they'd care to share or are these community files anywhere on the forum?
I've been looking for about a year now for a Geo Stevens 319am or like Coweco, etc, and haven't found one complete enough to purchase. So I thought I'd put the word out here. I'm looking. If anyone...
Looks real and correct to me.
Anyone had any luck ordering from TK lately? I'm not getting so much as a returned email over the course of more than a month.
Here's a new one I have not yet seen, an Electro brand lap steel pickup. I've seen variations but not this. The coil wire appears to be thin, perhaps 44.
Anyone have any information about this?
Thanks. I am puzzling over an original Filtertron that needs repair. The coil is wound so loose it's...surprising. And the inductance is lower than I would have expected. I would a replacement coil...
Understanding that higher tpl results in higher inductance, does wire tension likewise increase inductance with an increase in tension? Or is the other way around?
Anyone know where to buy them? The only place I know of is Reilander and those are nearly $5 a piece.
