4" Radius Blocks

About This Item

Radius wood blocks for spot-leveling frets and fingerboards, just add sandpaper. Short length is great for working on compound radii. They make great fret-gluing cauls, too!

Create an accurate radius quickly and without guesswork.
We make these hardwood blocks for use with Stikit Abrasives, to radius a fretboard quickly, accurately and without guesswork.

Shaping fingerboards: use 80 through 220-grit
Leveling frets: use 220 through 400-grit

When working on compound radius fretboards, simply change blocks as you progress along the neck.

These 4" blocks are used for spot leveling, and can also be used as a radiused clamping caul when gluing frets. The longer 8" blocks are better for consistent, full-fingerboard radius leveling.

Dimensions: 4" (101.60mm) long x 2-3/4" (69.85mm) wide

What's your radius?
Quickly find the curvature of a fingerboard or bridge with a set of radius gauges. Use them frequently to check your work as you smooth or shape a fingerboard or frets: a quick visual check keeps you from accidentally altering the shape—a mistake that's easy to make and hard to fix.

Excellent sanding block!

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I didn't even shop around for where else I might have gotten a 16" radius sanding block (since StewMac always comes through for me, and FAST). But this was a VERY nice block, consistent. Did exactly what I needed it to do, and the price was pretty good. The project I used this on was an ESP Ltd B-255 that I converted to fretless (defretted, slot-filled w epoxy & rosewood dust, then covered the fingerboard with about 2mm of epoxy). Used this block to sand the epoxy on the fingerboard back to correct 16" radius. Worked Great!
