Anybody have any use for one of these in guitar building? Got a shiny new one in the box and I'd like to get some use out of it if I could.

Thanks, folks.

The more I use it the more uses I find for it. It is as useful to the repair guy as it is to the builder. It can be used like a veneer saw, a plunge cutting saw, a scraper, a sander and polisher, grout and caulk removal tool- a multitude of uses. Like the smart phone it can replace a number of other tools by swapping out the accessory tool.

So far the only use I found for it on guitars was sanding the sides to fair in the bindings.

How about quick bridge removal?

A Tonerite on steroids.

But the Tonerite doesn't do a damned thing!

Why I used Prime Vibe. It vibrates the top with music...what a concept!
As far as oscillating tools, fit with the triangular sanding plate, it's great for taking a bridge down a bit and re-contouring the center of bridges after they are glued on the top.

With the set removed from the bottom side of the mid-width blade, excellent tool for cutting the neck off on epoxy-glued Yamahas for conversion to bolt-ons. With some tape on the body, minimal chance of finish damage and does a nice job getting through the dovetail.

You can carefully saw off the top or back for possible reuse, without losing too much depth in the sides.
You can plunge cut the slots for a classical guitar.
You can profile the sides and trim them to length after bending.
You can plunge cut the sides and bottom of the neck block mortise and chisel out the waste, then cut the matching tenon in the neck.
You can trim and notch braces.
Using a "raking" motion with the half moon blade you can relieve the area where the neck bolts to the body (for bolt on necks)
Again using a "raking" motion and various saw blades do some light carving on different places on the neck (chin, heel, peghead, etc.)
I'm sure there are many other uses.
