Hzelton, what makes you think about guitar manufacturers? I can’t think of what component would be similar to these specs. I’ve looked at Grizzly’s site, but it’s one thing to just look at the equipment and imagine in my head if it could do the job well, versus someone who has actually experienced multiple machines/processes and can point me in the right direction.

Dusty, I haven’t done that. I don’t have access to a wood shop anymore, so whatever solution I come up with will mean purchasing that equipment, including a jointer if needed. Off the top of my head, that seems like a lot of work to scrape the bandsaw marks off. To be honest, I hate using a cabinet scraper because I always end up getting too agressive and my hands hurt so much after. Also, for this application it seems less than ideal because it will be a production deal and I want to minimize the amount of time and effort I have to put into each step.
