Have you used the tangent line method to locate the fret location on your necks? If so how accurate is it?

what's the tangent line method?
Hi Jeff,
I found the info on youtube. This guy builds and has a lot of vids that show lots of info. The guys name on youtube is macdige. Just put that into the search and you'll find his vids. The tangent method looks simple if you know the scale length and the measurement from the nut to the first fret. Check it out.
