Twin set

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I bought two of these, one set is used with my arbor press and the other for use with the Jaws. Since I mainly built acoustics the two sets meant I didn have to bother changing the attachments to use either press. Would have liked to see a straight attachment for the ukelele kit that Stewmac provide.

Anybody who isn't pressing frets is living in the dark ages. This is a wonderful tool, and almost indispensable when working with stainless (much more springback from hammerblows).

We have been using this since years. It really helps the fretting. Very pro.

... to hammering frets. On all necks that are new or removable (bolt on) I set the neck in a cradle and use this with my drill press. Love it!

Absolutely Great!!

My first job doing frets on my first tenor ukulele and they turned out great, I can't imagine to have done them using the old method of hammering them in. It worked great on my 20 inch drill press.

fret press crawl

(Customer's Reviews)


I re-freted using slightly over radiused frets, and pushed them right in with the fret crawl. This is a God send!! Great product. A must have if you do any fret or re-fret job!! Currently have done three necks with minimal fret leveling in just the first week!!

Still hammer in frets, only when necessary now.
Over an acoustic body,you still need to pull out the hammer, but all the others, and electric bolt-on necks, it's so cool! I feel (and see) a really positive seating of the fret with this caul in my drill press. Just wish all these great tools could be just a little less costly!! Great addition to the workshop
