Jack tongues and keyboard rack

The jigs provide uniformity and hasten the work.

Here is the jig I made to cut out tongues. There would be a better way to make tongues had I room for a table saw. Plus I had long thin strips of wood suitable for tongues.

The punch for the plectrum mortises is a pin vice, and a wood cabinet handle. The actual punch is a ground down dry wall screw, heated up and hardened again.

In position and pushed with some body weight rather than struck.

Keyboard marked out and ready to cut and key rack with balance rail
