Diane I am sure they work fine.. it's no knock on alternative materials or methods... I was just curious as to the time of one method vs the other. I thinks its great the creative process of using things like cotter pin or??? necessity is the mother of invention after all.
Wow 2-1/2 years.. time flies, huh!! I remember when you hit the forum, doesn't seem like that long ago, but here we are all those instruments later, cool huh!!
As far a playing, the cotter pins work really well. The 3/16" is just the right size and I had no problem laying them in nice and square. You have to look real close to see they are not traditional fretwire. But, alas, they do pop out now and again and you have to glue them back in. And maybe I was lucky, but my necks were super flat and true and I did not have to "dress" or level, they were just fine from the get-go.
I've probably built about 75 instruments by now, counting ukes and mountain dulcimers. It has been about 2 1/2 years since I first laid eyes on one and had to have one of my own.
how many fret jobs have you done now Diane??
out of curiosity.. whats the time comparison from cotter pin fret (if memory serves) to std fret wire??
