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.
