Dan_007 Posted August 23, 2005 Report Share Posted August 23, 2005 Hi all I've been reading here for ages (couple of hours a day ), not much posting, cos i'm far from an expert but i'm a little stuck with my first guitar. I've made everything from scratch (except the radiused and slotted board) and i'm very happy so far, apart from a couple of inexperienced mistakes which i've been able to salvage I'm scared to fret....I dont wanna mess it up so i'm taking my time to read and learn the processes before I go ahead, but I've got a couple of questions, I'm not sure if i've missed things and I dont want to be another newb to get told to do a search....lol Whats a good way for me to pre bend the frets? I dont have any specialist tools, and I tried brians idea from the main site, but all I got was a curve, not tight enough to be over-radiused. Should I bend then cut the wire to lengths? or should I cut then bend? Also, I'll be hammering the frets in, I was going to use superglue as well, would I need to clamp the fret while the glue dries? The barbs on the tang are still intact, I just wanted a little extra security. How would I clamp these? Could I use a radius sanding block as a clamping caul? Sorry for the long winded message....I think I should know all this stuff by now Thanks guys Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
