    Hi.

    I would like to share a Kickstarter campaign for a CNC fretboard slotting machine. If you are interested in this sort of thing (and a few forum members might be:hmm:) please feel free to look it over.

    Thanks,

    -Don

    Can it handle fanned frets? I can't watch the video at work, but didn't see any mention in the text.

    Unfortunately, not as shown. However, if there is enough interest, that could be added. It would cost about double, as we would have to add a second X axis and associated parts, as well as pivot the Y axis so that it would swivel to angles up to around 20 degrees. The parts would be a lot more complex, but low angled fans could certainly be doable - again, if people are interested!

    Yeah I'm not sure what the interest would be. Still looks really cool, I like the concept.

    Might be appropriate to build one so that people who want these fretboards could get them slotted somewhere. Not sure its worth anyone just *having* the machine...
