Details

Accurately true or change a fingerboard's radius and level frets.
We make these hardwood blocks for use with Stikit Abrasives, to radius a fretboard quickly, accurately and without guesswork.

Shaping fingerboards: use 80 through 220-grit
Leveling frets: use 220 through 400-grit

When working on compound radius fretboards, simply change blocks as you progress along the neck.

Dimensions: 8" (203.20mm) long x 2-3/4" (69.85mm) wide

See our shorter blocks for spot leveling, and for use as clamping cauls when gluing frets.

What's your radius?
Quickly find the curvature of a fingerboard or bridge with a set of radius gauges. Use them frequently to check your work as you smooth or shape a fingerboard or frets: a quick visual check keeps you from accidentally altering the shape—a mistake that's easy to make and hard to fix.

Fast and accurate

I think that these ones are the easiest way to fix a uniform radius with great accuracy. I find it a little difficult to achieve a uniform radius from plane wood. I didn't used any of them for compound radius. I wish only that the aluminum beams were cheaper.

As an amateur guitar builder I can't think in a easiest and more precise way to give the curvature to a neck. really nice!

I decided to get one of these as they were cheaper than one of the 16" flat fret leveling bars. The block worked well, I attached double sided tape and cut a piece of wet and dry to the right size. (However in retrospect I should have gotten the flat bar as I now have 2 guitars of different radii that need leveling. My fault, not the products.) For their purpose, these work well.

The radius blocks make your work easy. The longer ones do the job also for shorter range fixes.
