Bloodwood keyplates are cut and scraped and buffed to a polish.Time to start gluing up the jack-arm assembly with these great little spring clamps I bought-a 6 pack for one dollar! All of them glued to a little foot that keeps them at roughy 4 degrees tilted back. I'm gluing every other one to make it a little easier to get at them. Every so often I take my square to check for true.
