I use this in my drill press and it works perfect all frets are all the same hight as long as you don't press one to hard that is easy to do to and hard to fix u can smash the wood
This tool give a perfect fretting job. Heavy recommended!
I'm making my first Guitar and the concept of the neck and frets scared the crap out of me. I found that StewMac has all the right tools and this is one of the best. I used the Fret Press Caul in my drill press and the Neck support under the neck to insert my frets. For kicks, I tried hammering one in a sample and there was no comparison. They made my life simple and professional looking neck. A must buy!!
I don't use mine in my press. I have modified the unit by welding the chuck bit verticle. I use a light hammer to tap frets into place. It gives me an even push on the entire fret to the radius of the neck.
in combination with the neck support it works like a dream. Fast and easy!
This is a quick, safe for the guitar and non noisy method for installing frets. You are best to use this with the fret press from Stewmac.
Tried using the fret hammer with little results,,ordered the press caul,,,worked fantastic
Fretting is so much easier with the caul. Get them in, get it done, move on. Leave the hammers to the carpenters.
After years of smacking frets in with a hammer this is one of the best tools I've bought, and no mre pounding on beautiful instruments.
easy fit on any Drill Press also you can adapt it to almost any Arbor Press. Thank You StewMac!!!!!!!!!!
