My Gitty miter box has made cutting frets less scary. Your ideas even more so, I particularly like the cut location marking method.

Thank you soo much for your suggestions. Plan to put them in action on my next builds. Maybe I’ve just been lucky on previous builds but never encountered any issues before now. Fretting this neck on present build I’ve had all kids of issues. It’s been so frustrating but finally getting it straightened out. Your fixes will be of great help on next build I’m sure.
