Custom Flat Jig - Do not order this item without contacting us with required dimensions FIRST!!  We need to verify pricing and then let you know what pricing option applies to your jig.

Hardened and cut on a Wire EDM from quality tool steel from our A2 Tool Steel Blanks.

All of our jigs ae made from high quality tool steel and THROUGH hardened to  ≈61-64Rc to resist files and bandsaw blades.  These jigs CAN NOT be altered with standard steel tools.  We dont skimp on material or hardening processes, quality is our #1 goal!

This jig has a 5/8 bore(.625"+0.0015/-0.0005) and is a handy tool for designing your own town board.  Much like a public jig, which acts as a guide to get you to a starting point, the flat jig backs up one step.  The flat jig has only a cork notch and a flat tone board.  This allows you to have repeatable cork notches and soundboard height while trying to design your own tone board. 

You can also use this jig to create the flat tone board you would need for building a curved reed call.  One of the older and more historic ways of making a call was to have a flat tone board and "curl" the reed to create the reed to board clearance for air flow.  This is an excellent way to get that perfectly flat tone board. 

Flat jigs come with one steel socket head cap screw, one nylon socket head cap screw (less holding power but does not mar the material as badly)

Remember, do not sand, grind, or use carbide tools on the jig unless you are purposefully trying to alter the shape.  Our Jigs are designed to withstand normal steel cutting tools with a Rockwell hardness of 60Rc or less - less being better for the jig (typical Nicholson files are approximately 55Rc) but the jigs can NOT stand up to carbide, diamond, grinding or abbrasives (like sand paper).   Our jigs are through hardened A2 tool steel and are 61-64Rc hardness.  We suggest avoiding tools made of material that is harder than 60Rc.  Some import files have been found to be harder than the industry standard of 55-58Rc - use at your own risk.  Some HSS or Cobalt tools (such as RotoZip bits etc) can possibly be harder than 60Rc and may prematurely wear on your jig.  We suggest you test any tool you use on the bottom or corner of the jig to be sure its not removing jig material prior to use on the toneboard portion of your jig.

Do not use a hammer on any hardened part or tool as it may fracture and cause injury.
