    I'm getting tired sanding fretboard radius so I thought I'd build a jig. I've got as far as designing it now I need to 3D print it. It should only take forever. Hopefully it will fit on something like this,

    I'll need to drill a couple of holes to fix my trim router on it. I'll let you know how it goes.

    Don't forget the place where the fretboard will fit in under the bottom portion, although you may have it on rails as is. I like your iteration.
