Excellent support for a guitar neck while pressing or hammering frets, or a lower clamping caul for regluing a fingerboard.

Saw it into shorter lengths to make lower clamping cauls for glue-in fret jobs.

Wooden support with specially contoured and lined it cork to get a firm, non-marring, non-skid hold on the neck.

As supplied with our Fret Arbor Press System.

Dimensions (approximate)
12" x 2-3/4" x 1" (305mm x 70mm x 25mm)

Works great on electrics but a little too low for acoustics. Holds the neck softly but securely.

Well built

Many safety and security for jobs that require strength.

Real disappointment

I really can't find much use of this currently but to hold cut frets before hammering them in (yea, I drilled holes on the side). It's really thin/low so the _only_ neck it will work with is a straight headstock. Even the smallest angle on the head and it becomes useless (currently working on a Strat copy that has one :() ... Forget about anything other than bolt-on). If it were two inches thick in stead of one I think it would have been a different story. As it is, I am just going to cut it to pieces for clamping cauls.

Essential for neck work

I used one of these to remove a fretboard on a 7-string neck-thru guitar. It made my job so much easier. The only problems I had with it is that it wasn't as tall as I would have hoped for while working with an angled headstock (nothing a few spacer boards and random pieces of wood off-cuts couldn't fix). I used the steam method for removing the fretboard and it caused the cork to come unglued at the edges. Not a huge problem, but a little annoying. Nonetheless, one of my favorite new tools for anything neck-related. I plan on purchasing a few more and gluing scrap pieces to the bottom to use specifically for neck-thru guitars.

I could have made it myself but at this price, I didn't bother. Nice stuff :)

Well worth the cash

Useful for pressing frets, or as a neck rest when held in a bench vise. Well worth the price.

It's Your Caul

By Guitartec from Coventry, RI USA

I use this caul to support fender-style necks (frets down) while I drill and install 4 threaded inserts into the heels. This allows the use of MUCH stronger machine screws to bolt down necks instead of the typical weaker-holding wood screws. I use a soft clamp to keep the neck from moving and it works okay. You do have to place the fingerboard's sides just right in the caul in order to balance each neck, but it does work. I wish the caul was designed better to use in this upside down way, but for low money, who could complain? I'm sure it works perfectly when using as it was intended for doing fret work but if you're you're drilling heels, it's a decent low-cost holder.
