Re: Process to radius coiled stainless wire
Thanks for the suggestions. Have either of y'all done an SS install and can comment on the differences??? I'm quite familiar with the NS process. My trolling leads me to believe that over-radiusing can lead to the fret popping up in the middle, as I linked to above. The fretbender can't 'unbend' wire. So you're suggesting hand straighten the wire, then use the fretbender? I'd thought of that, but it seems a little like overkill. Also stewmac really only sells tools for NS wire. Who knows if that thing's plastic crank and brass roller can hold up to something like SS with a much higher elastic modulus.
Either way, I'm reconsidering the SS in stall for Evo as I already posted.
Thanks for the suggestions.
