Fret cutting machine from scrap parts

Fret cutting machine. Produces a bunch of frets of identical length with nice square cut ends. It was recommended to me to cut frets with nippers, but that mashes and distorts the ends of the frets and requires a lot filing to straighten out. It's much quicker to dress the ends of these frets once they are installed and there is less chance of messing up the fret board wood when doing so -- especially when using the Gitty fret file tools.

Built entirely from scrap wood, leftover deck screws, and old bicycle parts.
