    Tried looking on ebay and amazon but can’t seem to find saddle
    90mm x 10 mm x 2.1

    i will cut longer length and sand small tolerance difference

    any place to buy blank bone saddles in that range?

    thanks

    I recently put a bone saddle/bridge in an Epi Chet Atkins SST.
    I did it right but tons & tons of sanding.
    I sanded so much i started seeing red in the emery cloth, it was my blood i sanded parts on my finger tips. I couldn't feel any pain.
    Like 1.5 hours of sanding.
    I used a small hand saw for plastic models to take off excess too.
    IDK how folks do that for a living.
    Don't wanna do that again.

    Yeah, manually doing it all sucks. I use a sander, Dremel and big, nasty files and a vise to get it real close before the sandpaper comes out.
