Re: Getting frets "perfectly" level...dressing
Evidently you ought to read the post that started the thread agin. Nowhere does it say he has a problem with "A" neck, he says he never seems to do good levels. Or are you reading more into than he posted?
Basic and very SIMPLE instructions ANYBODY can follow. Mark the tops of the frets with sharpie, take a light swipe with the bar with 320 [of course, you must have the milled bar, no blocks, stones, files, or any other half assed method is worth the time it takes to use, and run 320 Stickit on one side and 220 on the other] and adjust the truss untill you just start cutting the center of the neck. Depending on how much backbow the neck will show [because most will show a hair] you split the difference between where it's cutting the center frets and where it's cutting the first. [obviously you keep marking the frets each pass to get true judgement on where it's cutting]. When you have it the way you want cut even from one side to the other, always cutting smooth and even as you work around the radius and back until the last bit of black is just about to disapear. Then finish with 320 cut at a 45 [so that your first pass with Micro Mesh cuts at the opposite 45]
How tough was that to follow, and requires nothing more than your milled bar and milled bar alone. Now recrowning and polishing is 75% of the work but I'm not about to start another argument.
