You won't need to spend time making cumbersome custom-shaped wooden cauls trying match a radiused fingerboard surface, either. The toothed outer surface of the flexible glue-resistant band engages a threaded plastic thumbnut that adjusts the clamping pressure. The flexible cradle conforms to the instrument's neck to help protect the finish.

We recommend positioning a band clamp every 3" along the fingerboard.

sorry not a fan....

didn't really care for these... I use 12" sanding blocks as cauls for the top and I tried to use these to keep things aligned while getting the cauls in place... they just got in the way... also don't seem to have the clamping pressure needed to do a good job... just my opinion, your results may vary of course :)

Great clamps

These are great clamps and I was VERY surprised at the amount of pressure that you apply with these. So far I used these with two fret board glue ups…I am not sure how long they will last though…but the price is right! I just wish a bought more; I suggest using 1 at every other fret space.

Used these to hold the radius sanding block on a re-fret to hold 5-6 frets down for the glue to set. Worked like a charm!

Fingerboard band clamp

I thought the clamps did a very nice job.A little time consuming putting them on but well worth it.

Nice idea, but...

I was excited when I saw these and ordered 7. They come close, but don't give enough pressure to really squeeze a fretboard down tightly for an invisible board/neck interface. I still use these to hold the board in position while I apply more conventional clamps and/or bands. I do not use these as the primary clamps.

sorry for the last review

Okay, I know that in my last review, I posted a comment saying "overly-complicated", but I started messing with them, and eventually figured it out, so I apologize greatly for what I said.

But after I got them working, they were great!! But I thought I could just use 3 of these and use just regular clamps for the rest of the fingerboard. I was horribly wrong, the regular clamps put dents in the fingerboard, which were really hard to sand out and may force me into starting all over again!!!
So if you want to buy these for an electric guitar neck, but at least 5 or 6 of them. And sorry for the other review stew-mac. Looks like you showed me!!
