Guitar fret arbor presses - buy ONE press for fretting
Customize your manual arbor press for guitar fretting
Whether you’re a luthier by trade or dabble in DIY guitar repairs, avoid the hassle of glue and the stress of fret hammers with a manual arbor press. A manual press from Janesville Tool ensures that each guitar fret is level. Inserting the metal frets unevenly into the fingerboard can inhibit guitar playing and will likely cause the strings to buzz, making the intonation sound terrible.
Using a manual hand press machine in the beginning of the fretting process eliminates time spent leveling each fret later on. Our arbor presses are 100% American made and highly custom. This customization guarantees consistent self-leveling that can be hard to achieve with just a cheap fretting hammer.
The best sounding guitar is made of the best material and flawlessly crafted. An industrial grade hand press from Janesville Tool & Manufacturing executes guitar fretting flawlessly every time. A cheap hand clamp will NOT get you the same results and stand the test of time. This is a one-time purchase you'll never have to make again.
