How Much More Should Fretwire Be Bent Than The Board?

Recommended Posts

the way i determine the radius of the frets when I'm doing a refret or installing them is.. when you're bending the fret wire take it and lay it into a fret slot (as if you were installing them). Both of the sides should touch, but the middle will be approx. 1/32" taller. This causes the fret to bite more when hammering them in.

Good Luck!
