Then all I have to do is take that big sanding block and do a final fretboard sanding, cut/press the frets, then sand them level with that same sanding block and poof all that's left is crowning and making a nut. Not that it's a quick process, but having the right tools helps a lot.
I would say the tools I rely on most would be the long 12" aluminum sanding block, a set of 4 or 5 nut files, a 12" fet press insert and my router/bits. I also use the 2 kinds of straight edges and a fret rocker.
I use a newer DeWalt 2.25 HP router - that's a great size/power for making guitars - not too big not too small...
I'm really sorry, but I've not been informed of these jigs your are referring too. I appreciate the input, but, could you help me to understand what those specific jigs are and where they can be found?
