Side dot material

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I not only use this for side dots but for locating pins for gluing fretboards. Drill a 1/16" hole through the fret slot into the neck blank and pin before gluing. This keeps the fretboard blank from slipping under pressure and you can saw through it easily. My only complaint is they seem a bit pricey for what they are.

Perfect

Worked like a charm. I started out cutting with flush cut pliers, but it squeezed the material. A knife is the way to go, cut around the diameter carefully like you're cutting pipe. Not a big deal, but just to save yourself a little waste.

How can you go wrong. Thin cylinder of black or white (used them both) plastic that you insert into small holes that you drill then shave off. Simple and satisfactory.

Plastic side dots

By far the easiest side dots to install, perfectly sized so all you need to do is drill, press in, trim, and smooth off with a scraper. Fast, easy, efficient, what more do you need?

I bought a lefty saga replacement strat neck to put on a righty project I had. The other edge needed dots, and this totally did the trick. I just wish I would have purchased the larger diameter so it would match the side dots that came with the neck!
