The tang nippers are a great tool... I held out on buying one 'cause I thought it was pricey..but well worth the money!!

Thanks JuJu for invite. I was cleanin out my late Dad's shop and he had an old console TV cabinet that had been gutted. He also had an old shop Vac. I decided to make a vacuum sanding station with it.( I was tired of wood boogers) I built a frame on top and inside i angled cardboard so that dust would funnel down into shop vac hose under neath inside tv cabinet. I then put perfurated board on top of the box. I turn the shop vac on and start sanding. It works good. It also doubles as a work station. The console has wheels on it and I roll it around wherever. I put a 3/4 piece of plywood on top to use as a work table when i'm not sanding. I'm going to mount a small vice on top in the near future.

Hey Guys and Gals
After the nightmere i had on my last build the RESO i decided to buy a pair of Stewmac Fret tang Nippers .
Have you ever tried to undercut the Fret Tang on 22 Frets or 44 Fret ends ?? well the last ones i did took just under 6 hours ... yes you heard me right 6 hours and made my finger tips numb for 3 days .
i just received my New Fret tang nippers this morning , of course i had to try them so how long does it take to do both ends of a fret now ... less than 60 seconds "cool or what "
There not cheap but there a god send and something you need if your gonna be making Bound Fretboards , or just use them on a regular Fretboard , undercut the Fret Tang then use some filler to hide the Fret slot , no more fret tang ends showing on the side of the fretboard "sweet"
Share your special tool ideas with us all
Regards
juju.
