  2. Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    Note that TalkBass will host unlimited attachments for you, all the time, for free ;)  Just hit that "Upload a File" button.  You are also free to use our Media Gallery if you want a place to create albums, organize photos, etc :)

Is this tool any good?

    While it may level and polish frets in relation to their nearest neighbor, it won't be able to deal with any unevenness in the playing surface over the entire length of the fingerboard. It's probably fine for a touch up dressing once in a while, but I'd recommend a pro for optimum playability.
    Also, I fail to understand how a "longitudinal" motion is going to crown, or restore the peak, to any frets. It sounds a little hokey to me.
    If you get one let us know how it works, it's certainly affordable.

    I thought the same thing when I looked at it.
