I've been playing with the idea of an adjustable fret press to use on compound radius fingerboards. I started thinking that I can't be the first person to think of this.

I started searching the web and found this:

This is way better than what I was thinking of. He is using Peek as the press material instead of brass. It's a strong but flexable plastic that is used in place of metal. That's about all I know about it.

Anyone have any thoughts about how to copy/build something like this?

Thats very cool. I think he may have taken the idea from Ron Thorn - see the similarity?

Also check-out Walter W's post on here...

That's pretty cool too, I hadn't seen that one. That would be easier to replicate.
