Details

These 2-1/2"-wide grooved brass caul inserts fit our fret pressing tools and are designed for working with radiused or flat fretboards.

The milled groove on the bottom keeps each caul properly centered on the fret.

#4367 insert with 6"-radius holds down the fret ends for gluing — especially important on the tight 7-1/4" radius found on many Fenders.

Designed to fit: Jaws Handheld Fret Press, Fret Arbor Press System, Fret Press Caul

Very good tools

By Liuteria Balladori from Livraga - LO - Italy

Essential tools for me, perfect radiusing for fretwork

Great

simple, accurate stuff for a great price. I don't use it in fret press. Instead, I simply hold brass insert above the fret and tap it with a plastic head hammer. It's much better than hammering frets directly (and probably still worse than pressing :-)

Also, these inserts can be used as radius gauges - very handy!

Excellent!

Tough brass. Smooth inner crown leaves no marks on the fret. Comes in all of the radii that I would use.

Outil indispensable a prix mini !

Pas besoin de presse, ni de pince spTciale : avec un bon gros marteau en acier et ces petits inserts magique en laiton les frettes prennent parfaitement leur place sans aucune Tgratignure et en suivant parfaitement la courbe de la touche (si courbe il y a).
Un conseil : prenez le support le plus rigide possible (dans mon cas des appuis de fenOtre en bTton) de maniFre a Tviter de voir la force de frappe absorbTe par votre support et votre frette entrTe laborieusement dans sa fente, parfois de travers...

If you dont do alot of fret jobs and dont have the press just get the radius you need lay it on top of the fret wire and whack it in with a sharp blow of the hammer!Works great

A must for fret work

By JZ Guitars from Edison, NJ
(Customer's Reviews) Saturday, July 30, 2011


Used with the fret press these inserts are a must for fretting. Made in every radius out there, makes fretting a breeze. Self aligning and wide enough for 5 string bass these are shop essentials.

The right tool now!!
