A shop made jig for cutting fret slots accurately in fingerboard blanks. The jig is easy to make, inexpensive, and using a locator pin (actually more like a slot) it will duplicate any fret board that is run through it. I great item to have around the shop, and it takes all the time consuming layout and measuring out of cutting the fret slots. Works for every scale length.

An explanation of how to make a fret bending jig to help with fretting. This jig produces even curves and is adjustable to create tighter or looser curves depending on the fret board being worked on. It’s easily made from parts around the shop at a cost of only a few dollars.
