Fretting about frets

Posted on February 24, 2011 at 8:22pm 6 Comments

Newbie here.

 

I see that Stew-Mac charges about $100 for their fret saw & miter box. Yikes! Does anybody know if you can use a regular miter saw & glue w/ "jumbo" sized fret wire stock? Alternatively, I have a jeweler's saw, which I see are sometimes called fret saws. Can I use that to slot for frets? How?

 

Thanks in advance!!

David, I have had mixed results, but if I am careful, I get good frets with a hack saw and square.
