New gadget for fretting
So today I made my own version with a welding clamp and a couple of cauls. The cauls are held in place with magnets. One is just flat (but I'll make a concave one for fretting piccolo necks) and the other has a groove that fits the fretwire I use.
Preliminary tests says it'll work fine but it needs some adjustments. The flat bits on the jaws wobble too much so I'll put some string or rubber bands to inhibit the movement.
Will report more on the progress. Stay, as they say, tuned.
