Neck Repair Trick on a Dobro

The client is on the road and needed a quick fix.

Problem is the neck was pulling off in such a way that made a simple glue up impossible.  We would either have to remover the fingerboard  and rebuild the neck joint or find another way.   The other way was to use a right angle drill and screw the neck back tight from the inside.  Luckily there was enough room to get in there.

The fingerboard was well attached to the body so we felt confident that screwing the heal back on tight would be a good fix.  In the end it looks like the neck is more secure than when it was built.

Tim happened to have the magic Festool right angle drill ready to go!!
