I have a very cheap bass and am looking to start doing some fret work and I figure its a good practice because worse cause I eff it up and toss it. It was only $35. I know the frets are really really bad. They have some big dents in them and most are flat. Every single fret hangs off too. Its not that i'm too lazy to replace them and everything its just that I do not have desirse too replace them if I don't have too. Well, ya I guess I am lazy then. I was going to level them with a radius block from a defretted bass project and it turns out is the exact same radius. After that bevel them with a wood block with a file in it. You know the kind that are all over eBay. Then crown them with a 3-1 fret crowning file from StewMac or eBay. Finally purchase the ultimate fret dressing file from StewMac. So if I have to replace the frets i'll wait a bit so I can afford it all in one big shipment. Two more questions. Do I have the right order (Level,bevel,crown,dress) and will those tools give me the most bang for my buck?
