Installing frets in loose fretboard
Has anyone tried installing frets into a fretboard before it’s attached to the neck? Would it just bow the fretboard backwards?
Hi Steve, I've never done it but I have thought about it. Given that Stewmac sell their Fret Arbor Press with a picture of that very process suggests that it can be done
I imagine that even if the fretboard does bow slightly it will glue flat onto the neck when you apply the clamping pressure.
