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.

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.

This insert seated my frets perfectly. Very little leveling required.

excelletn tool.

By

Verified Buyer


I've found the fret press inserts, used in conjunction with my drill press (being used as a 'lite' press) does an excellent job inserting fret wire in my builds. I'm currently doing a 1937 Martin D28 replica build and needed the 16 radius insert to that end. No complaints.

Should add the flat insert

By

Verified Buyer


I make ukuleles so I needed the flat insert. When I ordered the press and accessories I assumed one of the five inserts would work for ukuleles. I was wrong and had to order the flat with added shipping costs. I would suggest that the flat should be included with the five other inserts that come with the press as others I've talked to had the same happen.
