Is anyone else a Tightwad with the fretwire like wot I am :) These days due to postage problems with sizes etc: my fretwire arrives in 12 inch straight lengths..so I have to be carefull how I cut it.
I start at the broad end of the board and work my way up to the narrow end, and I get very annoyed when the last piece is just a Nats Cock too short for the first fret and has to be scrapped :mad: so I'm doing calculations all the time to avoid waste...If piece don't work out I save it and use it on the next fretboard....Well It's expensive stuff:)

Well, that really IS being cheap. Raise your prices a nickel and that should cover it.
BTW, I'm pretty sure we're not allowed to say Nats Cock here. ;)

I know Bob's your uncle and Fanny's your aunt but I've no clue who Nat is. We're learning quite a bit from our brothers across the pond.

I think we spell it gnat over here, and they are awfully small.

Thats right I spelt i wrong.....In Metrology 1 Gnats cock = 1.5 RCH ;)
