You and me both Tony! I love the Camper. A Spartan with a saw... what's not to love?
Hi again Its spring leading to summer so I have to put the Camper w/firefly in the outdoor rotation. No actual 90° angle to strike it but well see. Time for the old Zippo
of course!! Got my SAKs confused!
My camper rescaled with Indonesian Rosewood.
Sort of a ‘Camper’. 1963 237kU .
Looks good! Did you make them yourself? The one set of wooden scales I've made I got lucky on and the holes were perfect and the scales actually snapped on. Because of that, I left them as they were. Did you use anything to keep them on? Adhesive? If yes, what did you use? I'm curious about how flexible/brittle and how permanent your adhesive was if you used any.Thanks! David
Yes, I made them myself. My wife works at a custom bass shop and they use a bunch of exotic woods that I am lucky enough to get the cutoffs of. The scales are affixed with two part epoxy. Not much chance of them coming off without being broken off. I glued the wood on then shaped them, at first with my little 1”x30” beltsander, then with a jitterbug palm sander and finally by hand, working my way down to a smooth finish. Topped them off with some boiled linseed oil and rubbed in a few coats and will rub in more over the coming days, weeks and months gradually spacing out the coats more and more.
