Fretting?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Joe Nanzer Oct 14, 2017. 8 Replies

So, yea. I tried using actual frets for a fret board for the first time, needless to say I'm gonna have to scrap it. I can't get the frets to keep from rocking in the slots. Any tips? Anybody?

Zero fret?

Does anyone know what fret wire should I use for a zero fret? If I'm using med/med for frets, what should I use for the zero fret?

Anyone have any ideas on how to cover up a scratch on a paper covered box?

"Sounds good, and I agree with Dennis.  Bolts, threaded rods are my go-tos.  Well, some zero fret stuff too.  I tried the bone thing and never thought they sounded better.  Big plus with bolts, screws and threaded rods is reduced…"
