Not bad!

It is well made and easy to use!
Since, I have a small drill press for my electronic projects, and it was too big for the press to hold it , so I modify it ,and it work fine now!

I have a small shop and not a lot of work bench space so I didn't want to go "all in" on the fret press system so I got this for my drill press. It takes a just a little practice...just like any new tool. After the second fret board I did I am going to MAKE a spot for the fret press system! Works great in the drill press...but go "all in" or buy both the system and the caul.

Throw the hammer away!

Even my wife likes this tool, mainly because she hears less bad language comparing to using a hammer. Great tool with a great result each time. Only suggestion would be a knurled screw rather than needing an Allen key as that is just one more thing to lose!

Saves time when gluing frets

The Caul is heavily-constructed steel. The inserts hold in place with a tiny set screw. I tried one or two inserts until I found the right one to do the job. The curved groove in the end of the insert fit perfectly over the fret face. This is a Pro piece of equipment for your shop!

Love It!

This will save you money if you have a drill press. With this fret press I can fret a guitar in 5 min.

Fret Press Caul

Works Great in my drill press. Presses fret with no problem. Makes fretting a much easier job. Worth the price with the inserts.
