Looking for some advice on installing frets. It seems to be the area I most struggle with on builds, and an important one at that. I have a fret hammer, and I also have a fret pressing tool to put in my drill press. I have a fret bender as well The trouble I've had is getting the radius to match the fretboard. When I first started building guitars I read somewhere that the fret wire should be slightly more round than the the fretboard you're putting it into. It seems no matter what I do I have the frets loose and popping up on the ends, or sticking up in the middle. Then I end up gluing them all in with thin CA glue. I get my fretboards precut from LMII and as a matter of course I buy my fret wire from them as well hoping that there will be no tolerance issue from one manufacturer to the next if I were to buy my feet wire from someone like Stewmac. What do you guys suggest? I watched a long series on YouTube from the guy that makes Wyn bass guitars. He puts a bead of (what appears to be thick) CA glue in each fret slot and then presses them in, waxing the fretboard first to keep the CA out of places where it ought not be. I like this idea, but I also like the idea of not needing any glue. Advice appreciated.
