I just published my latest video. I glue the walnut top of my Gibson Explorer-like body to the mahogany bottom using a home-made press machine.
Ha, ha, thanks, I like to solve problems...Your like a mad scientist with stuff like this. Great idea..especially for those who do not have appropriate tools and are just kinda getting into this stuff.
I suspect it could work fine but it may not generate the same pressure as the scissor jacks. On the other hand, it may provide better pressure distribution as the tube expands and fills a larger area. Don't know really, would need to try it out.This may sound crazy, but I was wondering if that jig/press would also work using a small tire tube inflated between 2 sheets of plywood to provide the clamping force rather than the scissor jacks?
