Works good

I needed the 7.5" radius for an old Tele that I was doing a partial refret on but I bought the whole set assuming I'd need the other radiuses eventually. Sure enough, a week later a repair project came in with a 9.5" radius. This is a great set, easy to use with my bench drill press as an arbor.

Simple, Effective...RESULTS!

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.

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

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.

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!

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