I was happily working along on this project, thinking about how easy it was all going together… then part of the head stock cracked off. This is a pretty major deal because there’s a lot of tension and stress on those tuners. I dug around in the garage, found some JB Weld and glued the chunk of head stock back on. I didn’t trust the glue alone to hold, so I drilled a hole, inserted a pin, and wound sinew around the fracture… so I guess what I did was put a permanent splint on this patient.
