Arbor Fret Press Build

Recommended Posts

After lurking here for a bit and finally registering this was inspired by some chat here. Just ordered a 1/2 ton arbor press from evil bay,$39.99 delivered, http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...em=160329541618. Not sure whether I will attempt to build my own caul and inserts yet. Even if I order the set from Stew and Mac, I figure I will be saving $70.00 off their premade version.

I am also in the process of gathering the parts for a neck jig. Figure I will be into it for around $50-$70. Which is a big improvement over the $390.00 delivered price from S and M.

Thanks for the inspirations and the information. I will try to get around to posting the fret press pics. The neck jig will almost surely be an exact copy of this http://www.groupwhere.net/guitars/NeckJig.doc.

Rock On
