About This Item

Fast and accurate! Now you can cut fret slots on your table saw or radial arm saw.

Labor saver!
Slot fingerboards quickly, cleanly and precisely, for any scale length, right on your own table saw. Ideal for production work, this is the same model 100-tooth high-topped steel blade we use here at our factory.

The outer edge of the .060" blade is specially hollow-ground to cut .023"-wide slots for our fretwire. This custom shape cuts more smoothly, and eliminates the need for an additional blade stiffener. 5/8"-diameter arbor required.

Blade dimensions
Diameter6"(152.40mm)
Thickness.060"(1.52mm)
Width of cut.023"(0.58mm) on the outer 1/4" (6.35mm) edge

Slot your own fingerboards quickly and precisely with our Fret Scale Templates and this saw blade.

Need help calculating your fret locations?
Our online fret scale calculator can calculate any scale length you want to use. It will also give you accurate measurements for locating the bridge on your instrument.

Fret slotting table saw blade

Verified Buyer


I purchased this blade last week. I built a mini sled for it.Squared it to the sled and was very pleased.
The slots are perfect and consequently the frets are too.

I completed cutting my fret slots in less than 5 minutes and they’re perfect. Build a nice sled for the table saw and you can’t go wrong.

I have a sawstop tablesaw and with a little piece of bent banding attached to my break it works just fine.however I bypass the breaking because if it were to activate it would not stop the blade,but will let the saw run.

Gee

I bought the blade. Built a sled. Discovered it won't work with the Saw Stop. I know there is a way to trick the saw by inserting a wire to trick the saw into believing it is a larger diameter blade. I am really frustrated because I gave away two great table saws to friends in order to make room for the larger and very expensive Saw Stop. Love the saw, but now I have to buy another saw and find space. Please let people know this does not work on a Saw Stop. I know the blade works because I used a friend's and that is why I bought one too. So, no problem on quality, just frustrated about not being aware.

Doesn’t work on Sawstop

The six inch diameter prevents use on a Sawstop table saw. It would work if it was 8”. Sawstop is a popular table saw brand so I recommend disclosing this limitation to save folks trouble.

This is the answer. With the fret rules this is the way to build a lot of fret boards in a hurry. Best choice I have made for making fret boards.

Really Nice Saw Blade

Cuts a clean precise slot, installed easily in my table saw. I made a simple sled, and the first Fretboard came out about as perfectly as is reasonable. Expensive, and maybe you get what you pay for.

Extremely accurate time-saver

I couldn't be happier with this saw blade...Fits perfectly and works well with my Dewalt portable table saw. I don't think I'll ever manually slot a fretboard ever again. I built a homemade sled for precise 90 degree fretslots. Thank you StewMac!
