Simple, Effective...RESULTS!

By LWood from Millbury, MA
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, December 05, 2012

I'm always looking for ways to minimize clutter and maximize space. I thought about getting the whole arbor press rig, but when I realized this set would work with my drill press, it was a no-brainer! I get fast and consistent fret setting, which compounds itself in less time and effort on leveling AND crowning.

Forget about hammering!

You want to keep your hammer nearby but this is the tool for the job!

Perfect job

The fret press caul and a flat insert I purchased are excellent quality parts and did a great job on an acoustic guitar. Anyone wondering if pressing the frets in beats hammering them in I assure you it is the way to go.

Fret Caul Press & Inserts

By John Rossbach from Elkins, WV

Pressing your frets in with this caul and the proper radiused insert is a far superior way to install frets over and above the old hammering technique. You get far more control, cleaner work, and no bounce back from hammering. If you buy the caul and set of inserts package, be sure to check that you also order all the individual radiused inserts you will need for whatever types of fingerboards you'll be working with, as the "set" leaves a few out. I got good results just buying the caul and all the inserts, and then using my drill press for pressing them in. Good investment.

Service received with a smile

Sensational service. Quick and very easy.

Must have gear

these items are not available in the UK and they are the best way to re-fret a guitar neck. They make the job so easy! One tip- I bought the range of brass inserts plus the Neck support caul!

Perfect Fretting!

By Archtop from USA

Why did I wait so long to press frets in? This tool sets those frets cleanly and evenly with no gaps!

Twin set

By GavinB from Perth, Australia
(Customer's Reviews) Sunday, October 07, 2012

I bought two of these, one set is used with my arbor press and the other for use with the Jaws. Since I mainly built acoustics the two sets meant I didn have to bother changing the attachments to use either press. Would have liked to see a straight attachment for the ukelele kit that Stewmac provide.

Wouldn't be without it.

Anybody who isn't pressing frets is living in the dark ages. This is a wonderful tool, and almost indispensable when working with stainless (much more springback from hammerblows).

Must have it.

We have been using this since years. It really helps the fretting. Very pro.
