Inexpensive Fretboard Miterbox

Purchased a $12 miter box, Stanley, and some aluminum bar stock from Lowes and made a miter box for cutting fret slots as well as slots for nut and bridge.  The 'indexer' was made from aluminum angle and is set for 26" VSL.  The Yellow strips of plastic, on the far right end of the white base board, are 'spacer' strips, made from thin plastic sheet, for varying thickness of fretboard. The fret saw was from Stew/Mac.  The aluminum angle on top of the miter box serves as my stop.
