"Goofball" was a derogatory reference to my method of turning round diamond files using a cordless screwdriver made by another member. I would hope that this "off topic" thread is not others "piling on". :(

Definitely not my intention. I’m very sorry that it appeared that way.

What @jbtsax outlined is exactly what I would do, only I probably wouldn't do it all that well, so I would ask him to do it for me.

If more of the top techs posted on forums like this you would have a different point of view, IMO.

Not trolling. IMO this is a fact.

I have a sense of what your response will be, admitone, so I add this: go survey the guys who make necks, make saxophones, do radical custom work, and see if what I say is unfair.

I am in a better position than you to know what that'd be. That may seem unfair, but it's also a fact.

Well...those that have not been exposed for ripping people off. There are only a few of those -- there are very few techs that do radical (meaning extreme, requiring some design knowledge) work, and a few of those have turned out to be charlatans/rip-off artists -- so with some care, those ones with personality disorders (usually some form of sociopathy) will be easy to avoid. I'm not one of em. But I did maintain an open mind to what they had to say. Valid claims by jerks are just as valid as the same claims made by friendly-faced, passive-aggressive types. I have probably learned as much testing the claims of some of those rip-off artists, and finding out what amidst their claims was valid and what wasn't, as from anybody else.
