Fret press

One end of a fret was loose and needed glueing but didn´t have any tool for that job. So I made this slightly over-engineered thing. Surely it is not the most practical press in the world and I would never do a whole neck with this. But it is fine for fixing a single fret every now and then. Best feature is that the press allows to apply pressure to just one end of a fret if necessary.

I made the pressing tool from transparent plastic, that helps to see what I´m doing. It is easy to change the tool for a guitar with different fretboard radius (unfortunately the tool itself was not easy to make, correct radius and the groove ...).
