Our binding jig is another great product based on designs used by luthiers Jean Larrivee, Sergei de Jonge and Mark Kett. It offers a number of features not available on any other commercial binding jigs.
This jig differs from others on the market; it remains stationary while the guitar body gets rotated over the jig. It consists of a base on which to attach a router, and a series of aluminum sliders.
Advantages to our binding jig:
-The slot is cut square to the sides since the jig references off the side of the guitar
-No need to change bearings or cutters; cutting depth and width can be adjusted in a matter of seconds using the depth adjustment on the router and by changing the size of the slider
-Repeatable cutting depths are quickly achieved with this setup
-Maximum binding/purfling width of .235", wider than other popular bit bearing kits on the market
-Easily adjust cutting width in .005" increments with fiber tape for precision channels
-No bearing marks left in the side of the guitar
-Compact design for easy storage
Includes everything needed to cut binding channels, except the router. This jig is designed for use on acoustic guitars. It requires a minimum body depth of 3".
Our jig is designed to work with a wide variety of mid/full-sized fixed base routers. It will not work with some laminate trimmers. Please contact us if you have questions about routers for this jig. Custom low-profile binding jig (for archtop guitars) available by special order. Please contact us for more information. Check out our demo video.
