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.

Makes quick work of radiusing frets or fret board. Only a few light strokes with either 400 or 800 grit self sticking abrasive paper and your done. Little pressure required. A great value.

Radius block

I bought the 8" long 20" radius block for my twin Tenor Ukuleles I'm building from scratch. This block is nice but I think I will save for a metal radius block as the wood one works but it has some dings in the wood already so it won't last long

Most of my guitars are 12" radius. This little 14" radius block helps me make a 7 to 8 fret fall away for great action and playability with no buzz. Thank you Stew-Mac!
