8" AND 12" FRET LEVELLING BEAM VERSIONS
The tool has been specially designed to utilise standard 25mm wide abrasive roll and includes 8 strips pre-cut to length. Reloading the fret levelling abrasive is straightforward by inserting through the tab slots and pulling taut at each end of the tool.
The fret leveller is supplied with our preferred emery abrasive (industrial blue twill/cloth backed). Industrial 'metalworking' emery has unique metal polishing characteristics. The specific properties of the abrasive enables high precision work and produces a polished surface finish on the frets. The standard width allows any abrasive of preference to be used in the tool.
The fret levelling tool is manufactured in our workshop. The manufacturing process includes linishing of the fret levelling face over a granite table. Tool flatness is guaranteed through 100% inspection and measurement.
Medium & fine & grades of emery are supplied with the tool. The choice of grade will be dependent on fret wear. The emery will become smooth through use and used strips of emery can be retained indefinitely for different degrees of fret levelling, and polishing work. After levelling the frets in a linear motion, the tool can be drawn sideways over the frets to polish out remaining scratches.
The oak handle is comfortable to use and is attached to the fret levelling tool via 2 allen screws on each side.
UNIVERSAL 12" FRET LEVELLING KIT
The universal version of the 12" fret levelling kit includes additional features for levelling frets with the strings in situ. Please see the workshop repair article for further information on this.
FRET LEVELLING PREPARATION
The guitar neck should be set straight before levelling the frets. (A notched straight edge will reference the fretboard and help to maintain uniformity of the frets for levelling).
MULTIPLE SANDING USES
The tool can be used for many other tasks including finish sanding & rasp sanding of wood by incorporating suitable coated aluminium oxide abrasives. (The engineering grade emery supplied with the tool is not suitable for using directly on wood).
