Set #8 Sawing fret slots and installing frets

Laying out the fret slots with my official Mosrite fret scale template.

Well I've got all the fret slots cut, I've took a 12" steel rule and a pencil and did the lay-out for the position markers, so we're going to drill 1/16" holes, install and level the position markers, then comes the frets.

I use my little brass hamer to set the frets, clip the ends of the frets with a pair of end-cutting pliers, file the fret ends flush with a 12"file, and then I give the frets a good pressing with my fret press, I like to make sure the frets are seated firm and evenly, then the binding.
