Reply To: New Melodica build


Yes Daren, the mini lathe and mini mill are metal working equipment as well as wood. I made this little jig with the mini lathe it is attached to. The jig is very simple to make and took about an hour or so to make. I was purchasing my springs from MacMaster Carr here in the US but they did not have the Spring with the OD wire thickness “.010” I needed, so I decided to make them my self. Though MacMaster Carr did not have the spring size I needed they did have the spring wire in the correct size, so I purchased the wire from them. You can use a drill press as well with this Jig but for consistency the lathe is much better. Buying the mini lathe and mill has worked out great for making Melodica parts. 🙂
