Just get you a fret chart or copy the frets over on a stick and mark your blank neck with pencil lines while the wood is still a block of wood not before shaping and stuff.
Then you can hold those pencil marks up to the backward scroll saw and cut them till the blade disappear into the wood that's about the right depth for a fret.
As long as you get your pencil lines good and straight across there and as long as the deck on the scroll saw is level at a 90 degree to the blade your good to go and no sawing!
You won't be using pot lids any more LOL
Yep the Lowebro I put the big cone in sounds really nice if I do say so myself.
And the two big six strings I have put the big cones in sound really cool!
StewMac has some nice tools to look over
Yeh, I'm actually patiently (not really) waiting for the delivery of my fret cutting saw, indexing jig, miter box, and fret wire from them. Maybe I can actually start finishing some of gitboxes I've made. I'll let y'all know how it works out.

Here`s my fret saw and slotting box from Stew-Mac. Bought it over 20 years ago. Best investment I ever made. I also got their fretting hammer with one end of solid brass and the other end has a solid plastic cap. I made up a block of pudauk with a piece of leather glued to it to use to set the frets. I use my dremel with a light grit,pointed grinding bit and a brass wire wheel bit to finish the fret ends.
