(Prev: Neck Tooling)

First, I had to sand away the back’s “overhang” on the front edge of the body to get a measurement on the absolute height of the neck’s heel. Secondly, I had to leave enough of the heel in place to “take on” the 15 foot radius. Can you see why heel caps are typically not sanded to a radius?

Imagine trying to match a consistent thickness on a heel cap with a radius involved? Not easy stuff …
