Neck Support Caul

About This Item

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)

IT'S O.K.

This thing is just O.K. BUT with your guitar lying on a work station mat this caul is too short to support the neck in any way. I had to put some pot holders under this caul to raise it up so it could actually support the neck. Once I did that it did hold my guitar secure enough to saw a nut out of a nut slot on my guitar so it works but depending on what kind of guitar you have (Mine was a Strat) it may not support your guitars neck without...support! Second thought I would have probably gotten away with just the pot holders.

You guys always come out with good quilty tools. I have gotten many tools from StweMac. Anything that I got and had a problem. They’ll send you a new one without any question. I love this place.

Quality below what I have come accustomed to from stew mac. A bit more glue and clamping during production would go a long way.

Branching out on a re fret on a 10 year old Stew Mac kit guitar. I cut this in half so it was easier to maneuver in the press. Worked well.

Excellent Neck Caul!

This caul is perfect for guitars and 4 string basses. It would be nice to see a wider version that would work for 5 string basses.

I assume StewMac's reputation is built on tools other than this one. Useful enough, I suppose, but it's about as no frills as it gets. After taking a sliver in one of my fingers from just picking it up to examine it, I was compelled to sand it and then give it a healthy coating of lemon oil so it has some kind of finish. It also appears that the cork will have to be re-glued sooner than later as I can see small gaps at either end that will get worse as I put it to work. Seriously, a little more effort (and glue) could make this a decent value. Happily I used reward points to purchase it so I'm not out the cash, but I think I'll build the next one myself.

I already have on but I needed a second one to cut down to fit mandolin necks. That's basically it. But what Stew Mac should do is make a narrower short one just for mandolins.
