Fret Press Inserts

About This Item

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.

Fret Press Inserts are designed to fit all of StewMac's fret pressing tools.

Must have accessories for Arbor press and vice grip press

After spending time setting up a station for the Arbor press I worked on a Martin D-45, it works great it made fretting very easy.

Don't fret!

Nice of Stew Mac to fill in the missing radii for the Jaws fret press system. You never know what is going to come across the workbench!

Fret Press Insert

By

Verified Buyer


I used the flat version to re-fret a banjo neck with stainless steel frets. Since I was only doing the
one neck I decided to forego using the drill press and simply use it to hammer the frets in place.

Banjo necks are narrow so I was able to hold it between my fingers and control it perfectly.

The install went without a hitch and no flat spots on the new frets. Highly recommend

Flat brass insert for fret press caul

By

Verified Buyer


The flat fret brass insert is radiused for medium and thicker guitar frets, but in this case I was trying to install narrow low Item #0764-LB madolin frets. The wider fret radius of the flat insert (not to be confused with fretboard radius) fits loosely allowing the fret to try to roll out of allignment with the fretboard groove when insertion pressure was applied. An insert should be made available for for use in installing narrow frets.

Excellent Tool

By

Verified Buyer


I have used several different methods for installing frets on my ukuleles and this tool along with the arbor have made all the difference in the world in the quality of the installation and speed of the installation. I would not want to go back to any other way of pressing in frets.

Little to say, perfect when inserting dishes, good material accessory.
