    This question is off-topic but what type of clamp is that? I've seen them a few times and they look real handy. It looks like the cam would put pressure straight up and down without having to screw down a C-clamp

    Nie Hao!! You have been buying more tools I see.
    I hope you get the depth of the cut correct. Looks good. Good to see you on here again.

    They are called a "toggle clamp" here in Aus. Don't know in American or Chinese.

    Long you should set up an index plate with holes in it attached to the fret board holder and just slide to the next hole and drop in a locking pin.

    Hope your translator gets this clear.

    I get them at Harbor Freight for about 1/4 that price when they are on sale, otherwise they are about 1/2 the price. Get 5-10 of them and it will revolutionize your jigs.

    Good to know. Looks like Harbor Freight sells 002, 003 and 004. They probably come from the same Chinese factory.

    I cut my fret slots the same way. No clamps, heel is centered and secured with a bracket and the headstock with a dowel.

    Dangit. Time to check the checkbook. May be a new addition or two to the arsenal.
