*Power Fret Slotting System for accurate fretboard slotting - Price dependent upon options

$189.95

The  Power Fret Slotting System allows you to have accurate, stable, and repeatable fret slotting capability in your shop. 

See the assembly, set-up, and use videos below. 

The basic system doesn't include saw blades, stiffeners, or templates as we know many people will already own them. They can easily be added.

We feel it's critical to use our blades and stiffeners for the best possible outcome. Many table saws come with blade stiffeners but most aren't appropriate for slotting with very thin blades. 

Detailed instructions for both the Slotting System and the Wedge Index Spring Pin are attached here and will be included with the jig. The written instructions are more in-depth but watching the videos will show you the ease of assembly and use of this tool.

Purchase your stiffeners now and save 10%. Purchase limit 1.

Stiffeners are the true heart of our power slotting system. They are made of heat-treated steel, are 5 1/2" in 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 are simply not adequate for this system.

  • Power slotting system stiffeners, set of 2, 5/8" arbor

    These stiffeners are made in the USA. They are fully hardened to keep them from being damaged which would prevent them, and therefore the blade, from running true. The arbor hole is precisely machined to ensure that the stiffeners run concentrically. The faces are ground to ensure a smooth accurate width of cut.

Purchase your templates now and save 10%. Purchase limit 3.

The Power Fret Slotting System is designed to accept a half template (unlike the Manual Slotting System which requires two halves joined). This choice is optional in case you have already purchased templates. Note: Only our Mix 'n Match slotting templates work with this system. Our older 2-sided templates are not compatible. 

If you need a different scale length, you can order a custom template in the next step.
