Cutting fret slots are best cut on a table saw with a template. This will yield the best results. The position of the frets is too important to risk cutting them by hand. To cut your fret slots on a table saw you will need a sled that will register the template and slide in the grooves of your saw.
The fret slotting template included in the kit has the compensated fret spacing as used in the book and dvd for improved intonation on one side and the standard rule of 18 spacing on the other.
Wooden runners are not recommended for your sled as they will expand and contract with changes in humidity. The fret slotting kit includes a set of UHMW runners for the grooves in your table saw. This material is ideal for this purpose as it will not change dimension with humidity.
The kit also includes the 3/32″ pin for registration of the template, the slotting template and a dimensioned drawing for the sled.
The blade, mdf and wood are not included. Blades that will work with this system are available at Stew Mac.
