    PBG "HomeLand" Fret Rocker question

    Wasn't sure where else to put this, but...

    Any of yous have the fret rocker that Adam sells?

    Just wondering how good they are for $14.95. I see the same ones on flea bay for less, but I'm dubious 'cause those buggers sell everything from kitchen gadgets to sporting goods - not dedicated musical instruments or luthier tools.

    I dinged my expensive one and am looking for a replacement.
    I'm also looking for a local machine shop/precision grinder that can fix my dingled one.

    Any experience/opinions here appreciated.

    Due to tight-fistedness, I use box cutter blades.
    You can break off the 3 different lengths to suit the area of the fret board.

    cheers, Mark.

    I am also cheap. I use the same blades as KC in places, and this sort of thing on the long places, particularly on basses. There are strongties in various sizes at our local big box stores.

    Adam's price seems reasonable, tho, if you are going to do a few...Click image for larger version.

    Thanks guys.
    I've used a brand new gift/credit card in a pinch, but I prefer the heft and precision ground edge of my stainless steel one.

    The PBG one just describes it as steel, not SS specifically. Maybe I'll just shoot Adam an email.

    Few things are as satisfying as using a really good hand tool...

    I use a couple of sections of 25mm 'T' section aluminium... I also use 'T' section aluminium as a rule, a making guide and other stuff... I like 'T' section aluminium...
