“I recently purchased a beautiful fingerboard from you and now I am thinking of grabbing fretwire from you as well. Unfortunately I'm cheap and lazy and find myself here asking if it is possible to pay more to have your fretwire radiused before it is sent? You guys would be the coolest ever. No matter what the outcome, I will be sending more business your way from here in Maine. Hoping for good news! Thank you!"
This classical 3-hole tuner drill jig by John Gilbert makes easy work of an exacting task. The 13/32" holes are industry standard, as is the 70mm (1.378") post hole spacing. For alignment purposes, lines are scribed center to the hole on the outside of the jig. A steel plate can be clamped to and extend out from the head, to act as a stop. Between this steel plate and the jig you may need to add shim stock to center the holes (see photo). If necessary, the jig can be used as a single guide by simply moving it from hole to hole.
Solidly made of cold-rolled steel and drill bushings, it measures: 3 7/8" x 1 1/2" x 3/4"
Use the 13/32" drill bit, HSSJ1332, with this jig.
