Tuning Keys.In this article we're going to cover how one experienced amp builder covers cabinets in Tolex or textured vinyl. Guitar Kit Builder encouraged him to share his experiences and photographs of installing Tolex, and he graciously agreed. It is a flexible vinyl material that was used to cover Fender amplifiers during the s.
The fabric covering that Fender uses today is not Tolex, but rather textured vinyl. It remains the most common form of covering for Fender amps; usually black but sometimes in other colors too. Photo 1 below shows a close-up of four styles currently used on Fender and other amplifiers.
These are s Tweed top leftearly s brown and blond textured vinyl top right, bottom left and mids to present black textured vinyl bottom right. The procedure covered in this article should work well for all Tolex-type materials. Be sure to read through this entire article before beginning any project so you know all the steps to come and materials needed. This article is simply how I do Tolex projects. This is not intended to be the definitive method, but rather what has worked for me.
With a bit of practice, and the steps outlined here, you too should be able to get excellent results. For the project photographed here I'm using a simple homemade cabinet Photo 2but you may be starting with a purchased cabinet, or an existing cabinet that has had the covering removed.
This cabinet uses simple butt joints Photo 3 that have been screwed and glued together for strength. Before you can start to apply the Tolex, your cabinet must be prepared. Fill any voids caused by screws or other fasteners with some kind of wood filler or plastic wood. The same goes for any other irregularity in the surface or edges, such as small gaps in box joints, or damaged places. It would be a good idea to avoid knots in your lumber if you are building your cabinet from scratch, but that is not always possible.
If you have questionable knots in your cabinet you can secure them with "Super Glue" prior to final sanding. This is mostly for cosmetic reasons and is not a necessary step, but I think the cabinet looks neater and is easier to keep clean with some kind of treatment on the bare wood.
Depending on the source of your cabinet, the inside may already be finished and you can skip this. The exhibit to the right illustrates a number of approaches to covering a cabinet, using one, two or four pieces. Each of these has its pros and cons and depends on the size of the cabinet, the size of the Tolex I have on hand and the aesthetic qualities desired.
I like to do most cabinets and amp heads with two pieces - one piece for the two sides and top, and a second piece for the bottom.How To Build a British JTM 45 Plus
I'll be using the two-piece method for this project. Our first step is to determine the length of the first piece. This piece will need to be 62" long. For this next step you'll need a chalk line - a small, eye-shaped case filled with blue or orange chalk and string used in construction trades. It has a metal tab on one end for pulling chalk-coated string out, and a reel on the side for winding the string back in. Alternatively you can use a ruler and a long straight-edge. Lay the Tolex piece out on the floor Photo 4 lengthwise and use the chalk line or straight edge to mark three lines along the length of the Tolex:.
Photo 5 - Bottom piece being checked for fit. This cabinet will have two seams on the bottom and none on top for a smooth appearance.
Photo 6 - Checking how the main piece will wrap the cabinet. Making sure to leave an adequate flap to fold inside the box during gluing. At this point our pieces are ready for gluing so it's time to talk about adhesives and some other items we'll need.Brush-on adhesive ideal for applying tolex. Cleans up with soap and water. No nasty solvents required. Does not stretch or shrink the vinyl.
Comes in quarts or gallons. Specifications: Tolex Glue is a non-flammable, Neoprene based, water borne adhesive formulated to bond tolex and vinyl to wood and wood based substrates. Apply a very thin coat to both surfaces. Very porous surfaces may require more than one coat. Second coat should not be applied until first has dried.

Recent form was poor until it picked up last week in Mauritius where he finished tied fourteenth despite a poor closing round. He is yet to record a win on tour but in such a weak field and in his own backyard if he is ever going to break through it might well be here.

Arsenal were in midweek Europa League action and Arsene Wenger made 11 changes for the occasions.
The Gunners stormed to a 6-0 win over BATE Borisov in their final Europa League Group H match. Arsenal will find out their opponents for the next round of the competition on Monday. Last weekend Arsenal suffered a 3-1 defeat at home to Manchester United, despite controlling the match and playing some brilliant attacking football at times.
United goalkeeper David de Gea made a record-equalling 14 saves in the match that saw Arsenal drop out of the top four. Charlie Austin continued his successful return from injury to equalise for the Saints. Southampton will take confidence from the fact that Arsenal have the worst away record of all the teams currently in the top nine.
Shkodran Mustafi has been ruled out for Sunday. He has a slight chance of returning for the West Ham match three days later. Wenger played with a back four for this first time this season in midweek, but Per Mertesacker is expected to partner Nacho Monreal and Laurent Koscielny in a back three against the Saints. Theo Walcott and Calum Chambers are both available to face their former club, although their involvement in midweek makes appearance on Sunday less likely.
