Fret Press Inserts

About This Item

These 2-1/2"-wide grooved brass caul inserts fit our fret pressing tools and are designed for working with radiused or flat fretboards.

The milled groove on the bottom keeps each caul properly centered on the fret.

#4367 insert with 6"-radius holds down the fret ends for gluing — especially important on the tight 7-1/4" radius found on many Fenders.

Fret Press Inserts are designed to fit all of StewMac's fret pressing tools.

Flat fret insert for fret press

By

Verified Buyer


This part was not included in the set of fret inserts that came with the fret press. The folks at Stewmac were kind enough to send me the flat insert at no cost. My recommendation is that Stewmac include that insert in the current set. It is instrumental for pressing fret wire into ukulele necks. Thank you Stewmac!

I finally just bought all of them

By

Verified Buyer


These are absolutely necessary to hold frets in place while gluing. I had made due with the few that come with the Jaws presses for too long. Nothing like having the right tool for every situation

Just what I needed for the Koa Uke Kit I was building

By

Verified Buyer


I did not realize the set of inserts I purchased with the fret press did not include an insert that would work for the Uke, so purchased this later. The other inserts will work fine when I start on guitars

Better fret installation

By

Verified Buyer


Since I started pressing frets rather than hammering them my necks are much better. Levelling frets on new builds and refrets is easy and does not require the removal of much material. I use the Jaws 2 or my drill press.

Makes setting frets much more efficient!

By

Verified Buyer


I'm building my 2nd ukulele kit, and I've built half a dozen other fretted instruments (dulcimers, etc.,) over the years. I've always faced setting the frets with a great deal of apprehension. My fingers are crippled with arthritis, and getting the fret tang started, and into the slot was a clumsy operation. When I saw this drill press caul in the catalog, I knew right away that I had to have it. This morning I cut the fret wires to size, and started setting the frets. My fingers are still clumsy, but with just a little care, you can get it started, and using the caul, send it home is very nicely. I love it! I may not have many instruments left in me, but it was worth it even for this one project. Buy it!

Very pleased

By

Verified Buyer


This was one of many that I purchased to fill in what did not come with "Jaws". I eventually bought all the inserts. Good quality tools help make good quality work. And if you don't have a set of "Jaws" you are doing fret work the hard way. Happy Camper!!!!!

Very nicely made

By

Verified Buyer


I am using these to fret a Martin fretboard for a custom guitar. The pieces are nicely machined and free of burrs. In my case I made a custom mounting block to adapt them to a small press in my shop.

What a Tool

By

Verified Buyer


They say tools expedite the process, and these inserts, matched with the fret press caul, do just that.

If the curve fits...

By

Verified Buyer


I have the full set to match the unexpected variations in radius found on everything from turn-of-the-century Washburn parlors, to 50's Gibsons and modern compound radius fretboards. I almost never reach for the hammer anymore. Pressing home frets with either an arbor (bolt-on electric necks) or the Jaws II clamp/caul method ensures a very even radius and very minimal leveling to finish the job.

On the luxury end of tools to have on hand, but once you press frets it would be tough to go back.
