Shop Tip #057

Forget bridge pins,
dowels, or tiny steel index pins. The easiest way to locate a bridge on
an instrument is with some thick masking tape. I simply cut off half a
dozen turns of tape from the roll and make a little "dam" to index the
bridge. Then, when I glue and clamp, the bridge ends up right where I want
it without fail.
