4" Radius Blocks Essential Set, Set of 5

About This Item

Save money with this set! Our 5 most popular sanding blocks for spot-leveling frets and fingerboards. Just add sandpaper. They make great fret-gluing cauls, too!

Create an accurate radius quickly and without guesswork.
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

Set includes the 5 most popular fretboard radii used in guitar building and repair:
7.25", 9.5", 10", 12", 16"

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

These 4" blocks are used for spot leveling, and can also be used as a radiused clamping caul when gluing frets. The longer 8" blocks are better for consistent, full-fingerboard radius leveling.

Dimensions: 4" (101.60mm) long x 2-3/4" (69.85mm) wide

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.

How did I ever live without these? . Just buy a set you’ll be glad you did.
Also buy the 3M sandpaper roll with adhesive. Makes leveling frets so easy.

Been a dedicated stewmac customer for a long time. These will get the job done, but I need to fill the tear out. They are accurate, just not what ai am used to with stewmac products. not worth the effort of returning

Nice Tool

These were perfect for finding the correct radius of my fretboard and refinishing the fretboard and the frets. My Gibson J200 is back up and running. :)

These things make short work as a gluing caul for stubborn frets as well as for sanding fretboards especially with the 3M stick-it papers attached

StewMac to the rescue ! Frets leveled , crowned , polished , now it's as it should have been to begin with ! The radius blocks also made getting the curve on the new saddle and nut I had to make a " cake walk " ! The right tool for the right job !

Great Tool

I picked up the set of 5. Well worth the money. It saves a ton of time with great results. I should have picked them up a long time ago. I've only had them a few weeks, but have done 4 fret jobs, that I've been putting off by the way, and they worked GREAT. If you don't have them...Get 'em, you'll thank yourself later.
