Registered members only may use this section for placing free, non-commercial ads for tangible goods. What do we mean by "non-commercial?" If you're an instrument builder you cannot place a free ad here to sell or trade your instruments. If you're a dealer you cannot place an ad here to sell or trade whatever you deal in. Ads for more than a couple of items or a few multiples of the same item are not appropriate whether or not you are in business, except for bundles of books/magazines/tool sets (graduated set of chisels, bundle of spool clamps, etc.). Staff will make the call on whether or not a bundle/set is appropriate, their call is final. But you can place an ad for the Strat-style body you bought before you decided that what you really wanted was a Tele, or that old dot-matrix printer gathering dust under your desk. Use this section to look for items you want as well - begin the title of your discussion with the shorthand WTB (for Want To Buy), WTT (for Want To Trade), FS (for For Sale), or FREE if you have a tangible item to give away.
Please do not use the discussion here to engage in negotiations with a seller/buyer, nor ask the other party to contact you - you should contact that person directly. Their contact info is available by clicking on their name, "profile", "PM" or "e-mail" icons in the message.
You may NOT solicit to buy or sell services, for people to give you goods or services for free, to sell more than two of the same item, or to sell more than a couple of related items!!
MIMForum etiquette is to post the asking price for the item you are selling; to e-mail the buyer/seller instead of posting a message here, which they may not see, asking them to contact you; and to respond to all e-mail inquiries. Please do not leave your potential buyer/seller hanging.
Members may also use this section to solicit other members to join them in a bulk purchase to meet a minimum order, as long as the organizer is not profiting from the transaction, and the item being purchased in bulk is not sold in smaller quantities by any of our advertisers, or the bulk purchase being organized is a purchase from an advertiser. Please remember that any such transaction is strictly between the parties involved and the MIMForum cannot be responsible for any unfavorable outcome.
Sell your item? Earn a bundle? If you would like to send a small percentage of the sum to help support the MIMForum and keep it online, we won't object! You can use our subscription form and send any amount you wish. Thanks!
Your ad should be limited to 50 words and may contain non-commercial attachments. Links to graphics (that do not display as part of your ad) are OK as long as they are not at your commercial website. Please ask the sysop to delete your ad if the item sells or you find what you want, or post a message saying "Sold" (or whatever). Otherwise the shelf-life of an ad placed here will be 60 days. If you are interested in purchasing a commercial ad, please see our ad rates page. Please do not "bump" your ad, doing so will result in its immediate removal. Thanks.
Do not post your e-mail address, home address, or phone number!!
I have the complete set, plus every size radius insert (0, 6, 7.25, 9.5, 10, 12, 14, 16 & 20). Jaws is a professional fretting tool with a self-leveling upper caul that adjusts easily to any neck. It includes five interchangeable 2-1/2" brass inserts, grooved to fit over the fretwire crown. The inserts match popular fretwire radii: 7-1/4", 9-1/2", 12" and 16", and a special 6"-radius insert holds down the fret ends for gluing.
Jaws is a durable steel tool that's easily adjustable. It has a 4-position coarse opening adjustment, plus fine thumbwheel adjustment for clamping pressure. A clamp release lever unlocks the tool. Jaws opens to approximately 2-1/2" (63.50mm) to accommodate any instrument neck.
Why press frets? Pressing the frets can save time and produce more consistent results. That's why it's the method that's widely used in guitar production. Pressed-in frets are less likely to have loose ends and uneven heights, because there's none of the recoil produced by hammer blows.

Plus 478" of fretwire, .110" wide x .055" high x .074" tang. Enough for about eleven guitars. I've used the Jaws twice, so it's like new.
Jaws, $176. Fretwire, $27. Calling works best, David 707.721.9669, firstname.lastname@example.org

These are good tools for pressing frets into the fingerboard. It takes a bit of practice but not rocket science, and can produce great results.
