Great price and works perfectly as expected.
As a newbie to re-fretting, I started with a cheap imported caul and set of their inserts. Had problems with alignment and 'smooth/even entry' into the rosewood; ended the project very frustrated. Before my next project, which is to fix a few of those frets done with the cheapie caul/insert, ordered this. Much better feel and quality. Only thing is, I assumed my import inserts would fit this new caul; they didn't and I had to delay the repair until the second, unnecessary order arrived (if I had just bought them with the caul).
Used on drill press, give good result. One thing to be aware of--you must support the neck with a hollow jig and support the fretboard evenly for the portion that overhangs the body.
Works good so far. I've only done one neck, but it seems solid and the price is fair.
I'm not a professional guitar builder. I was building 4 necks and needed a fret press caul and this was the perfect tool and didn't break the bank, like the other guys who shall remain unnamed.
On occasion, you can sneak by with an AMZN or DIY alternative. That's not the case for a fret press caul. Glad to say the Philadelphia Luthier Tools is a reliable, fairly priced supplier of specialty tools and supplies. I am originally from PHL. GO EAGLES!
Does exactly what it's supposed to! Solidly made, fairly priced - can't go wrong!
Put this in my drill press. Pressed the frets in place. No hammer marks, no bouncing, worked great. This was definitely worth the price!
works as expected. way more affordable than stewmac, fast shipping. very satisfied
