Introducing the GM6....

- Only 1 tightening knob per slider - for faster alterations
- Aesthetic flush faced design
- Hardwood bodies.

Here is a first look at a prototype GM6. There will be a couple of differences between this and the production model. a) The production model will be made in oak hardwood. b) The tightening knobs will be different.

We are currently developing the Mark 6 which involves the following

1. Testing it to destruction in every way conceivable
2. We would like to make it out of oak for aesthetic reasons - to achieve a finer finish than is possible with redwood pine.  - this involves finding a good reliable source without huge minimum orders or delivery costs.
3. We are thinking of limiting the product range to achieve economies of scale. Currently we have no batch production because each model is commissioned and made to an exact swing size.  We may have just one model with a choice of spacer bars to make it suitable for your lathe.
