  1. Custom suction rib system, save 80 % of time…

    Thanks! LOL
  2. Custom suction rib system, save 80 % of time…

    I wanted to save my hands, as I used to play the music a lot too... Basically, I just like to create something new, for the pleasure of it. I like to conceptualise things...

    Yes!
  4. Custom suction rib system, save 80 % of time…

    The box is pretty big, it keeps your fingers always far away from the Safe-T-Planer, the suction if very strong, there is no need to clamp the rib. I always start at the middle of the rib. The finishing is done with the scrapers, it is not long do since the Safe-T-Planer does already an excellent job. The accuracy is well controlled within 1/10 of a millimeter. It must say here that inside the box I have to pieces of MDF wood to reinforce it, you can see a discontinuity at two place into the holes pattern, this is where are located the inner pieces of wood, there is a central hole on each piece to let the suction pass through.

    Here is the custom design I created to thin my violin rib. It is basically a suction MDF box with a groove over it that holds in place the rib. It works over the table of a press drill. I was using a Delta press drill with an extra large platform. I was using a Safe-T-Planer mounted on the drill to thin my ribs. It is very accurate. It does not produce a fine powder like when we are using a belt sander. It is a known that the fine powder coming from hard wood is toxic for the lungs. It is pretty safe to use the Safe-T-Planer. It can be found here: http://www.stewmac.com/Luthier_Tools/Types_of_Tools/Planes/StewMac_Safe-T-Planer.html?utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=TXT%3A New Products&utm_term=safe t planer&utm_content=Safe-T-Planer The measurements of the box are:Length = 762 mmWidth = 153 mmHeight = 120 mmThe MDF thickness is 16 mm.The width of the groove is 43 mm. I used a router to make that groove being .6 mm deep.The open part for the adaptor suction part is 56 mm wide. I connect to it a Shop-O-Vac vacuum. We start to thin from the middle of the rib in place, then going to one extremity, and we start again into the centre and we complete until finished toward the other extremity. This approach about 80 % of the time usually used with the traditional method using a plane.

    Hello Mike, I am sorry, for the moment I prefer not to share, because it is a custom concept where I want to protect my rights, I maybe interested developing a market with it. Regards, Pierre
