Lutherie made a little easier

Interested in lutherie? It certainly takes a special breed of woodworker to produce musical instruments. The precision, the finish, and the end result is a constantly used tool, not something decorative on a shelf.

The latest edition to the CutSetter range is a pair of fretboard gauges. These are used by instrument makers/repairers to check the curvature across a fretboard. As well as being used when making a guitar, they can be used to find the radius of an existing fretboard. They are the first in a range of instrument measuring tools CutSetter are going to introduce.

Speaking of which, the CutSetter now has a “Professional” in metric or inch units, and a “Compact” in metric or inch units. The Compact has a size range suited for router table setup, and doesn’t have any angle markings.
