Cool Caul

By KL from Christchurch, New Zealand
(Customer's Reviews) Monday, July 22, 2013

This is a quick, safe for the guitar and non noisy method for installing frets. You are best to use this with the fret press from Stewmac.

I love it!

Fretting is so much easier with the caul. Get them in, get it done, move on. Leave the hammers to the carpenters.

Good investment

After years of smacking frets in with a hammer this is one of the best tools I've bought, and no mre pounding on beautiful instruments.

Quiet, Good and Consistent !!!!!

Works great with just a simple drill press. Frets must be radiused correctly for best results.

Very quiet and consistent

If you can, try to press the frets. Not only will your customers be happier (and this would mean more customers), but it's also a lot quieter to press frets than hammer them. I have received many noise complaints from neighbors by hammering frets because especially on larger, difficult to hammer frets the operation was very noisy. The only downfall to this is that you can't really do this with acoustic guitars over the soundboard, and it's also harder on set neck guitars such as most Gibson guitars. You can probably angle the caul in your drill press to reach it, assuming your drill press is large enough. If you live overseas get this one, and modify a stock arbor press you get from your country to fit this... otherwise use your drill press. The Stewmac arbor press system may cost too much to ship overseas, this adapter is much lighter.

Very usefull !

Uma =tima ferrenta. Facilita muito minhas reformas.

Works good

By Tom Sawyer (really!) from Vernon, CT
(Customer's Reviews) Sunday, February 24, 2013

I needed the 7.5" radius for an old Tele that I was doing a partial refret on but I bought the whole set assuming I'd need the other radiuses eventually. Sure enough, a week later a repair project came in with a 9.5" radius. This is a great set, easy to use with my bench drill press as an arbor.
