8" Radius Blocks

About This Item

Accurately true or change a fingerboard's radius and level frets.
We make these hardwood blocks for use with Stikit Abrasives, to radius a fretboard quickly, accurately and without guesswork.

Shaping fingerboards: use 80 through 220-grit
Leveling frets: use 220 through 400-grit

When working on compound radius fretboards, simply change blocks as you progress along the neck.

Dimensions: 8" (203.20mm) long x 2-3/4" (69.85mm) wide

See our shorter blocks for spot leveling, and for use as clamping cauls when gluing frets.

What's your radius?
Quickly find the curvature of a fingerboard or bridge with a set of radius gauges. Use them frequently to check your work as you smooth or shape a fingerboard or frets: a quick visual check keeps you from accidentally altering the shape—a mistake that's easy to make and hard to fix.

On future builds I may order fretboard ready to go but wanted to make my 1st one, this did the job great and should work for leveling frets.

Perfect for bass ramp

By

Verified Buyer


I purchased the 8" long, 9 1/2" radius sanding block to make a bass ramp for my Fender American 5 string P Bass. It was quite easy using the sanding block to get the radius needed for the ramp.

StewMac provided very fast shipping and good service! Thanks!

Seems cheaper than the pic.

By

Verified Buyer


It works, but there is no stewmac logo like in the pic and it's not quarter sawn, kinda looks cheap, and has the radius number stamped on the side like the cheap Chinese ones i see on eBay. Also not very hard, i used it as a clamp for gluing frets and it easily dented. Was hoping for more paying the big bucks!

I find the radius blocks very accurate and save me time. My levels are jealous now cause they are not seeing the light. Been using the block now for all my fret leveling in addition with the 3M Self Adhesive! a winning match
