Works well, but the color is in a spectrum of it's own

This stuff is very simple to install, but be aware the white is a very bright pure white and will look quite different from mother of pearl (or imitation) fret markers.

Clean little dots

I got the 1/16 black and it works just fine. I made an error and dipped the tips in my binding cement then placed in my pre-drilled holes. This turned out to be too much cement and sort of melted the thin rod and a few fret markers came out blurry even after scrapping. Next time I'll use a toothpick or just use super glue sparingly from a fine tip to fill the holes.

This is the single easiest part of making a guitar and quickly rewarding too. these look great. One stick is enough for a few guitars. Both sizes look great so it is all your taste.

side dot material is A#1

High everyone,Don the maddog luthier here to tell everyone about the side dot material available from Stewmac. Using an 1/8" drill bit,and some medium superglue is all it takes. The drill bit give a slight bit of wiggle room, which is great for the glue to get to all the surfaces,after drying I just come in with my flat surface nippers(fretting),cut, use a scraper for final surfacing. The material takes on finish very well,no complaints here. I can do 3-4 fingerboards per stick,and always try to keep some on hand.
