Set comprises of:
'U' FORM LEVELLER FEATURES
Precision manufactured with lapped working face for ultimate flatness.
One-piece lightweight simplistic construction ensuring ease of use.
Unique slim design enabling single string dressing without affecting adjacent strings.
Two leveller sizes are provided. Their respective lengths cover the fret graduations efficiently.
Perfect for general fret levelling, spot levelling, fret chamfering and detail sanding.
Dressing can be concentrated accurately on worn areas limiting the degree of excess sanding to surrounding areas.
The slim 'U' channel design ensures excessive flatting of the fret tops is avoided.
GENERAL FRET LEVELLING
Use the long leveller for the wider fret spacings (up to 12th fret approx) - and the shorter leveller for narrower ones.
Usage is not restricted to linear strokes along the fretboard length. The levellers can also be drawn laterally using both hands across the frets. This is facilitated by the abrasive continuing around the sides of the leveller. Finishing with the ultra fine grade in conjunction with a lateral motion will ensure the fret tops have a mirror polished finish that will be noticeably smoother during string bends.
The levellers can be used to chamfer the fret ends.
5 Grades of abrasive paper : Coarse – Ultra Fine, are included with the kit and are pre-cut to fit the leveller sizes. The abrasive supplied is sufficient for several complete fret dresses.
The leveller sizes permit standard abrasive sheets (280mm x 230mm) to be equally cut and used without waste when replacements are needed. (Replacement abrasive kits are also available).
The choice of starting abrasive will be dependant on degree of wear but it is essential to use each stage after this, as skipping any grades will leave abrasions that will be more difficult and uneconomical to remove with the finer abrasives.
FRET CROWNING STICK
Wrap the ultra fine abrasive around the nylon stick and brush the fret tops to smoothen out the crowns.
POLISHING THE FRETS AND FINGERBOARD
The wire wool can be used along the grain of the fingerboard to polish the frets and clean the fingerboard also. The wire wool can also be used as a final dress for the chamfers.
DUST AND INGRESS
There will be a fair degree of dust throughout the process. It is advisable to mask the fingerboard and protect the body area - especially pick ups - from any ingress. PVC tape is provided for this.
WHAT THIS KIT WILL DO
With correct use this kit will provide excellent results and make your instrument a dream to play. A little investigation into your guitar set-up and attention to detail is required however the results will be satisfying.
No liability can be accepted for any damage through improper use.
