I was thinking of buying one of those little mini table saws and a .023" jeweler's blade to cut fret slots. The saw is height adjustable surprisingly, and it seems just the right size for such a job. Has anyone here ever used a small table saw to do this kind of work ever, and if so what was your experience.
Does it have miter slots? if not, there is no way to make a sled to accurately slot each fret.
I wouldn't attempt it without some kind of jig. Stewmac sell circular saw blades specifically designed for fret slotting.
It does in fact have miter slots. It even came with a cute little mini fence?angle guide. Also Stewmac is pretty pricey. Their circular saw blade goes for like $100, whereas a 4" jewler's saw blade is like $5. I do have a Stewmac fret template and indexing pin, so I'm considering a mini sled jig as well.
someone did this on project guitar. here is his second verison i think. look around there.
