Jockson Posted February 28, 2007 Report Share Posted February 28, 2007 I'm trying to radius a fretboard using a radius sanding block and I'm not getting very good results. The board ends up straight at the center but the sides are always a little uneven and "over radiused" at places (I can see that when I put the Stewmac fret pressing caul against the fretboard). I think the reason for that is my inability to keep the block perfectly aligned at all times. How accurately do you guys do this by using this method (radius sanding blocks)? I would use a router jig but it would be hard to set it up now as the fretboard is already glued to the neck. I'm not really a fan of "close enough is good enough" approach but if I get it right within say 0.2mm across the whole board, is that good enough considering I have to level the frets later (and therefore "fix" the problem)? I don't want to keep sanding as the board could end up being too thin and the radius that I'm getting is not getting any better. Any advice, tips or perhaps an alternative method? Is it worth the effort to set up a router jig now? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
