Testimonials

“You guys are the best. I just received my order and literally every time i describe my specifications on how the fretboards should look you guys deliver 10/10. the two long scale indian rosewood fingerboards looks simply spectacular and the ziricote is glorious. I usually dont take the time to write these but this time I had to. Thanks for years of wonderful service guys. And if you can find the guys who helped pick my recent boards, make sure to personally tell them how happy I am."

Power Slotting System

FRETTINGPowerSlottingSystemSPFSYP600Power Saw Slotting System (SPFSYP) is the same tried-and-true power slotting system we have been using in our workshop for many years. Designed for the table saw and our fretting templates (two scales per template), this system allows the small shop to produce accurately slotted fingerboards in the most typical scale lengths.

Blades • Stiffeners • & Other Parts
Our LMI shop slots loads and loads of fingerboards, and with proper care and cleaning our blades last many months. We offer blades with either a .023" or .025" kerf. They are 6" diameter, have 190 teeth and a 5/8" arbor. The blade is designed with proper chip clearance and tooth angle for long life in Rosewood and Ebony.

Stiffeners, or collars, are the true heart of this system. They are made of heat-treated steel, are 5½" diameter, and each is .125" thick. This configuration controls blade runout, extends the life of the blade immeasurably, keeps it from deforming, and ensures accurate slots in your fretboard. Typical table saw stiffeners, similar to those that come with your table saw, are not adequate for this system. We highly recommend our stiffeners. Stiffeners are not available for the 1" arbor blade.
