Testimonials

“Great service! 
I have been impressed with the quality of the items I've received (especially the fretboards). You've been very helpful with some unusual builds (the suggestion to order a bass fretboard slotted from both ends for two short-scale necks was brilliant). I was very surprised at how quickly I received an order of custom-length truss rods. You have a very happy customer."

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 SPFSYPCS stiffeners.

The index pin that comes with the system is designed so that any fret position can also be used as a nut position or as a zero fret.
