Red Fox fret wire ?

From trackers on 7/20/2022 2:49:59 PM

A couple of questions. I have a couple of frets that are going to have to be replaced in the future. 

1. Does anyone know the fret wire size for the Red Fox ? 

2. What is the brand and type of epoxy that was used to epoxy the fret wire in the neck ? 

Thanks in advance

David, We bought fret in in bulk by the pound and sell it by the 18" lengths only. If you want to try to match it from Stew-Mac or some place else the fret crown width is .080", crown height is .037", total fret height from tang up to top of crown is .094", tang length less points is .019, and at the point extensions on each side is .031". Any good epozy will work but fast curing would be ok for just a couple of frets and not the whole fingerboard. Old epoxy must be cleaned out before replacing with new.

David, In comment made earlier today I said tang length where I meant tang thicknesses of .019" and .031".

Thanks Jeff. I didn’t know you were still open for parts orders. I’ll order direct from you.

Geoff, I attempted to call and order the fret wire, a cap, a bridge and 2 heads and your number has been disconnected. I sent you a message via the Hangout and also a friend request on Facebook. Send me a message and I'll send my phone number and you can call me when you get time. Thanks
