Fretboard clamp blocks


Not all useful designs need be complicated. I’ve recently taken to radiusing my fretboards as I CNC them out of the blank, rather than doing the radiusing after gluing. This makes it very easy to get accurate radiuses, but makes gluing the fretboard a pain, as it’s hard to get a firm clamp on top: hence these clamping blocks!

The design is here, and it is parameterised so you can tweak the radius by just modifying the parameters and then you can regenerate the CAM model.

Of course, not everyone has access to a CNC machine, so if you’d like us to make you a set at a given radius, just get in touch and we’ll make you a set of ten blocks for £25 plus postage.
