Fret cutting


Has anyone ever used the Stewmac fret miter box? Seems like a perfect tool.

 hi, i don't have a sound hole mic but one that sticks on the dulcimer. Seems there was a discussion awhile back about small violin mic's that could drop in the sound hole. Maybe someone could remember the posts.

welcome,

marg.

Hi James,

I can't seem to add a comment on your post about the StewMac miter box.  I have the miter box and it does not work on any fret boards over about 3/8 to 1/2 inch thick.  So unless you do fret board overlays, it will not work for dulcimers.  I use if for other instruments...banjo's, cigar box guitars etc.

Have fun!

Hi James, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer.  It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.
