New Block Rim Maker In Town!

Posted by Wyatt Custom Banjo on Saturday, January 7, 2012

I have spent the last year building fixtures and jigs and tools to duplicate the process of making a rim from start to finish!  Well, I have finally got it done.  I have started my retirement business early!  I will be making rims!  I make them from Maple - soft and hard, Beech, and Birch.  I can make them from what ever you desire!  i have a few sound files of a banjo that has ha beech rim in it.  The newest OLD SPINNING WHEEL has one of my beech rims.  I will be posting other sound files later.   I have made for a few on the hangout here.  I will be glad to share names so you can talk to them directly.  I have their permission to do so.

Today I turned a beech rim down and recreated a pot to duplicate my TB-1 pot.  Awesome sounding banjo!!  I'm having a blast turning and doing rims.

 

I will be turning out semi finished necks by the spring.  You can buy a neck and with all the critical cuts made and finish it yourself!  I will keep my progress posted as i progress!!
