Finally Fretting

Using my squeeze clamps I made a fret presser. I used Patrick Hufschmid’s technique to prepare the neck and to hammer the frets in. I used epoxy to fill the slots incase I messed up somewhere. Hammering in frets is awesome. Now all I need to do it find some way of trimming the ends…

Cutting Fretwire..

I couldn’t find decent wire cutters or pliers anywhere so I used the deadblow hammer and a sharp chisel. I put that wasted piece of padauk to use as a chisel/cutting board. So far nothings gone to waste! Woot!
