Just started

By Fishdoctor from Montgomery, AL
(Customer's Reviews) Tuesday, January 10, 2012

I have only used the fret press on one fret board but was impressed with how easy it was to use. Gave it 4 stars but I think that would go up to 5 stars after I have used it some more. If you do your own fret boards give it a try.

Handy drill press attachment

I would have given it 5 stars if mine had come straight at the swivel connection. Kind of odd since the tool seems well made otherwise. Sinks the frets positively and evenly.

A great tool ....!!!!

Fret press caul.

By Quentin Howarth from Cumbria, England.

How I wish I'd bought one of these years ago. Put it in my press drill: professional results!! And fret dressing is now a breeze, with no annoying "dinks" in the bead where the edge of the hammer caught it. I'm delighted.

nice makes accurate fret work

Great Tool!!!!!

(Customer's Reviews) Monday, October 17, 2011

I am sooo pleased with this outfit!! It has worked great for me. Only one small problem, the 16" caul is a little on the thin side and tends to lean a little when pressure is applied, but not a major problem. I'd recommend this to anyone getting into fret work!!

excellent tool - makes accurate fret work so much easier than hammering

To a man with a hammer...

By DaveG from Sewickley, PA
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, September 14, 2011

My first three necks had hammered in frets. It took a long time to hammer them in, then it took me a long time to file the frets even.

This went right into my drill press, pressed them in quickly, VERY little filing afterwards.

Never going back to hammering...

Great improvement over hammering frets

By Middleton Guitars from Southern California
(Customer's Reviews) Tuesday, August 30, 2011

I use it with a drill-press and get great results. Most helpful for bolt-on necks! I saved some money buying just the caul since I was also buying a "Jaws" and can use the brass inserts that comes with it.
