Fret Miter Box Jig.
To get quick consistent results with your fretboard fret cutting job, you need a accurate, easily adjustable miter box. This plan gives you changeable fret scale that easily bolt on and off, a reinforced cutting slot and easy to make wooden base.
The fretboard is attached to the sliding portion of the jig and this slides freely within the jig to allow easy cutting of each fret slot. Your saw is guided by a bolt on fret spacing template made from brass or hardened aluminum, giving you consistent results every single time.
This fixture will save you a ton of time and you will have fretboards with perfectly spaces frets.
Plans include (3) very detailed drawings giving you all of the detail you will need to build this jig with ease.
