    The main thing that causes to the ends of the bobbin to splay out is setting your wire guides too close to the flat work. You want to leave about .025" to .050" between the wire guide and the...

    I use all three techniques plus variable discharging of magnets to fine tune things. In the past we've seen mixing in some larger diameter magnets like .195" with the .187"s, attaching steel plates...

    That'll teach me not to wander off into the wilderness for weeks at a time.

    I think dividing up the forum is a bad idea as you will inevitably segregate the groups and limit their interactions hence limit the overall chances for knowledge to get distributed and for anyone to...

    Thanks Ted,
    It comes in thicknesses from .028" up to 1/4" so there's probably some .040-.060" out there that would be ideal. McMaster Carr undoubtedly sells it in minimum quantities.
  8. Anyone use Kydex plastic for thermoformed pickup covers?

    Apparently this stuff is supper tough and wear resistant. Availability is much better now that the knife and handgun crowds have started using it for holsters/ sheaths....

    Just be cognizant that until you temper it it might stay very brittle and sheer off under torque. Assuming it's just O1 drill rod you probably don't have much to worry about as it's a fairly...

    I think OP's question is referring to hum cancelling of external junk signals, not the string signal so Number of Turns times the area of the average turn will need to include all area inside the...

    The covers were given ample time to gas off, several days to weeks and months. The wire was heavy APT which is pretty much immune to solvents,...

    I used to use it under plastic and wood covers for shielding around single coil pickups.

    My experience is more with nickel conductive spray paint under the covers and I was surprised at how much the nickel paint dulled the tone, much more than aluminum or copper tape even though the...

    I'm pretty sure any nickel-plated cover would get attracted to a neo magnet. Not sure what that means in this context.

    Hi Marco,

    I haven't actually done the math but Salvasan's coil estimator (which I found here: http://www.jdguitarworks.com/coil/coil.html) can do that for you once you've chosen the coil geometry...

    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.

    Marco, For the J halves to match the P halves...

    Marco,
    For the J halves to match the P halves you need to have equal turns*areas. A p pickup will have 10000 turns and a thinner top to bottom coil so the outer turns will be much larger area than a...

    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...

    Is the effect of conductivity strictly limited to eddy currents or are we talking about something else entirely?

    Worth a call to allparts, someone there probably knows what these are made from or can find out for you. I think maybe Mike is the fellow who knows stuff like this but it's been a while....
