Very versatile.

I recently got this because I had the a manual slotting system from another supplier, but needed to fix up a fret slot from some gluing as well as cut a slot for the nut. I had another supplier's saw, but for $8 figured I would try this one with the rest of the stuff I was ordering. It fit my saw perfectly as well and seems to be very accurate. Comes with a protective covering on it as well.

Great Idea

This was a nice idea for them to come up with this for builders that have a different fret saw then what they have in the catalog. My only issue it that it leaves marks on the fingerboard.

Works good but..

The depth stop is great to use with the saw but I found it is not leveled very precisely. Mine made marks on the fingerboard and I had to use my fretboard leveler to make it better. I hate having to finish brand new tools.

the fret saw might need it

I found that the fret saw is a little flabby, as in you can easily bend it during use. I think the depth stop stiffens it so that the slot you're cutting is more accurate.

Really simple

This is really easy to make yourself - buts its one of those things you never get too. Thats my situation anyway - easier and cheaper to order it.
