Simple and perfect

Very easy to install, both in wood or over plastic (bound necks). Just drill a hole with a bit the same size as the plastic, 1/16" depth or more. Press in the wire and cut with x-acto. No glue needed. May be sanded, scraped, planed and lacquered upon, if needed. Even a beginner can't go wrong. Excellent product.

Side dot material

By

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.

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.

Thin plastic cylinder

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.
