Fret Saw?

Recommended Posts

You can buy something called a "gents saw". The width of the cut is very important though. I think the width of the stewmac saw is .024"??? If you are using their fretwire, then you need a saw that cuts that width. You should always check the fretwire to be sure what width slot to cut - but yes, you can use other saws.

i checked the slots on one of my fresh boards with feeler guages and i got .022" but i was also under the assumption that it was .024"

if you go to a specialty tool store you might have a bit of luck, just take with you, or ask to use a set of digital calipers to measure teh kerf (thickness) of the blade on the cutting edge.
