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.

Dimensions: 8" (203.20mm) long x 2-3/4" (69.85mm) wide

See our shorter blocks for spot leveling, and for use as clamping cauls when gluing frets.

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.

8" Wooden Radius-sanding Blocks

Good product, does exactly what it's supposed to. Doesn't get a whole lot of use in my shop, as I mostly build and dress with a compound radius. Mostly I use them for shaping the tops of nuts and saddles, where they shine.

Great Radius Blocks

Well there's no guess work here, You just select the Block for the radius you wish to have on the fretboard put on a piece of sand paper, sand the board and it comes out radiused. What more could you want. Great product at a good price. Excellent!!!!!

Just the Tool!

The 8" wooden radius block combined with the self adhesive sandpaper made a great fretboard out of a bad one in a very short time.I'll have to buy the set now!

great item

I bought the 8" sanding block and just used it on my first fingerboard. Actually, it is the first neck I have built. I radiused an ebony fingerboard in about 30 minutes with the block, some doublesided tape and sand paper. I feel no need to pay more for fancier radius equipment because used carefully, this tool worked perfectly. My fretboard matched up dead on with my template. I highly recommend it.
