Okay I have two questions. My first is: Do I need a truss rod in the neck. I would build the neck so that I wouldn't have to adjust the action but what I mean is would I need one for support so the neck wouldnt snap or warp and my next question is does anyone know where I can find a fret calculator that doesn't use metrics.

Thanks

I think a truss rod is necessary just to counteract the tension of the strings. And I think you'd need to adjust it even if you didn't want to change the action, just to get the correct relief. Don't know about the fret calculator.

Yes you need a truss rod so that the neck won't warp.

There is a fret calculator in the one of the stickied threads at the top of the forum. The thread that says "getting started on customizing". I don't have excell so I don't know if it needs to be in metric or not but I've started using metric for my fretboards anyway because it's easier to measure.
Not taking any online orders.

The fret calculator attached to the "getting started on customizing" thread is in imperial (inches), but is in decimels.
