This is the remaining overrun from a batch run.  We bought extra blanks expecting some to not make it through the process, surprisingly, they all made it.  Not one bad one out of all the blanks - who knew?!?!  :D   We are offering up those remaining jigs to the public - first come - first serve.

When they are gone, they are GONE!   

We have no plans to run more of these jigs at the present time.

The basic specs of the jig are as follows:
- Bore: 3/4"  (.750" +.002/-0.0) with a 1" counter bore for keg end clearance.
- Finished deck height (bottom of 3/4" bore to the top of sound board) is .490" ±.005
- The jig is 3.4" long, and the flat board portion of the jig is a touch over 2-3/4"
- Two 1/4"-20 threaded holes along the bottom of the 3/4" bore to secure the keg in the jig (presses it against the top side of the bore), and two 1/4"-20 threaded holes, one on top and one on bottom of the counter bored end, to support the end of the keg in the counter-bored section of the jig (my understanding is this is more to help support the end and hold it centered, than it is to hold the keg from moving - so I would expect these two screws will not need to be very tight - and maybe a piece of Mylar or leather may be used to protect the finish of the keg?).
-  Made from Tool Steel and hardened to 61-63HRc (A2 - Max Hard - Random sample hardness test of entire batch) - the blanks are drilled, tapped, and then hardened, and cut the sound board after heat treat to avoid any warping or movement from the heat treating process.
-  Jigs will come with steel - 3/8" long set screws as well as nylon 3/4" long socket head cap screws - to use at your own preference.  (Fred has told me that on his - he ground the nose of the set screw flat to reduce scarring from the screw - so you may wish to do that to the steel screws that you receive with the jig if scarring is an issue)
-  Lastly - I won't lie, Ive never used one, made a Reelfoot call, or have any knowledge of making them, or using this jig.  This is why I relied on Fred, Fred's design, and information.  I wont be able to provide much reelfoot specific help, as Im just not knowledgeable about them.  Fred has a tutorial on making Reel Foot Calls on the THO Forums - HERE.

When Fred first gave us permission and asked us to build his design and make it available to the public, he said he did not want any compensation for the design. Despite that, we told him that we were going to, and we are going to pay a portion of each jig sold to Fred because it is his design, and we feel that is the right thing to do.  With out his design, information, and input on the Reelfoot jig - it would have never come to fruition.  Just trying to do what is right.

When these are gone, the are gone and we do not have any immediate or long term plans on doing another batch run.
