Neck Jig. Simple but effective.

Here are some photos showing the new neck jig that I recently built. This simple looking jig is a real time saver as it guarantees that the square dowel stick hole and end bolt hole are accurately located in the rim.

Next it guarantees that the dowel stick hole is accurately drilled in the neck heel and that the dowel stick is accurately glued in the neck heel. It’s 100% accurate and takes all the guessing out of the alignment process. I don’t know how I survived for so long without this simple jig!

The banjo is an Original Vega I´m restoring for a customer in the US.
