I don't want to go back...

... to hammering frets. On all necks that are new or removable (bolt on) I set the neck in a cradle and use this with my drill press. Love it!

Works good

Well I'm done hammering fret from here on out. Much cleaner and consistent than tapping.

Absolutely Great!!

My first job doing frets on my first tenor ukulele and they turned out great, I can't imagine to have done them using the old method of hammering them in. It worked great on my 20 inch drill press.

fret press crawl

I re-freted using slightly over radiused frets, and pushed them right in with the fret crawl. This is a God send!! Great product. A must have if you do any fret or re-fret job!! Currently have done three necks with minimal fret leveling in just the first week!!

Fret Press Caul

OH YES..... I used this in my drill press to install frets with a Smile on my face the whole time !!!!! No hammer dings, uniform and very snug fit !!! What a treat !!!

Yeah, has great value in the workshop

Still hammer in frets, only when necessary now.
Over an acoustic body,you still need to pull out the hammer, but all the others, and electric bolt-on necks, it's so cool! I feel (and see) a really positive seating of the fret with this caul in my drill press. Just wish all these great tools could be just a little less costly!! Great addition to the workshop

excellent tool !!!!!!!

i used to pound frets in with a hammer, sometimes that is still necessary however this tool has made the bulk of my fret work much faster and easier.

Fret Press Caul

I have re-fretted several guitars in the last years, and always looked to this tool with curiosity but never bought it. Last week i decided to go for it and... FANTASTIC!!! refretted a 74 strat neck in 20 min?!? could not believe it myself, great tool...
