A Practical Guide to Cabs and Poppers
This 30 page tutorial will introduce you to making cabs on a cab mandrel.
The tutorial is very specific to our mandrels ( available separately) but can obviously be applied to all cab mandrels.
In this tutorial I will share tips for getting the best use out of cab mandrels. I will cover the initial application of glass and include valuable information on shaping them.
The tutorial also covers finishing your cabs; my partner David has extensive knowledge of glass finishing techniques, and the tutorial offers options and methods for grinding and cleaning the bottoms if you don’t own a flat lap, and tips for gluing them to poppers, etc.
We import ‘naked poppers’ compatible with this system for you to use, our 14.5mm cab makes a perfect size cab for this popper.
I do not go into great detail on specific designs in this tutorial. I do however introduce you to dots and layers with tips on heat control which will benefit the application of design on these little cabs.
