simon1138 Posted February 10, 2017 Report Share Posted February 10, 2017 Hello, I want to start cutting a fret board by hand and want to know what the cheapest saw is that I could get. I live in the UK so prices would vary compared to America or elsewhere. The question that I have is, "what makes a good (and cheap) fret saw?". I understand that the kerf has to be thin like the tang on a fret. Most people talk about Gents saw or Japanese saws etc. Also TPI, how many is acceptable? I think the word acceptable is preferred to good, as good would imply expensive and I want to go cheap. I have looked at flush saws as that have high number of teeth, are small and probably easier to use and very thin. I think that the tang I am going to use is half a millimetre thick. These are the cheap frets on Ebay. So a saw that would be good for that size. Thanks Simon Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
