The TechDeck's design, 
function and versatility, eliminate the 
 the need for vices, dial callipers posts, 
arbour presses, vice grips,   
or computer controlled
 fret dressing machines.

All of your fret-work needs are now
in one multi-adjustable package.

Fret work and fret dressing 
 just got a whole lot easier. 

Hello Michael,
Long time, no chat. I hope all goes well in beautiful Stratford.
I have been using my TechDeck regularly since I got it from you. I know you've heard this before, but I really don't know how I got along without it. It just makes everything so much easier.

Best regards from Ottawa. ( May 2015 )

Thanks for a great product and exemplary service !

Hi Michael,

Thanks for the video link,

The TechDeck arrived yesterday, and I am very impressed with it already!
I put it to work straight away with a fret level and dress on a locally (factory) made Maton 325 dreadnought.
after a couple of views of the video I had it all set up with the guitar secured and the neck well supported, the level and dress came out perfect. 
The job went very smoothly with so much less effort to level, crown and polish with the guitar so well held and supported.
The customer picked up his guitar today and was very pleased with the set up.

I will be adding a new bench for the TechDeck and setting up a designated repair area very soon, so will send you a pic when it is all set up.
No more putting away the guitar I'm building to repair or inspect a customers guitar.

Thanks for designing such a great tool, I think it will be invaluable to my business.

For those of you who are interested in the NSK;
it is shipped out separately, in it's own carton.

that runs his business down in Atlanta Georgia.

Jeff received his TechDeck and " Neck Surgery Kit " last March.

Hi Michael.  Good to hear from you.  I’m loving the Neck Surgery Jig.  I’ve done 5 neck surgeries in the last 6 months.  Works like a charm.  One customer took his ES-339 that I had just completed, to a gig that night, and had it on his guitar stand plugged in.  He tripped over the cord and the guitar went face first onto the stage (the same way he broke it originally) but this time it didn’t break.  It’s stronger after the surgery.
Hope all is well up north.


Fitting the neck with an off-set dovetail. Cutting the dovetail off centre for this cutaway Jumbo .... puts the male dovetail in the centre of the head block for more stability.

This is my ( very early ) version of a compensated nut
 .... cut from a bone blank.


This was the day ( 10 years ago )
 that the new StringTech "TechDecks" had arrived.
 I was ' One Happy Camper ' that day ! 
Been using both of them every day since 
and have more than doubled my shop output.

Thanks goes out to the leather workers,
 machinists, designers and trades people,
who continue to make this product available ! 

In the early stages, when I first developed the initial
 proto-types; I had never imagined that we'd be 
shipping this product around the World.

A few years have gone by since I put up this post.....

Sincere thanks goes out to all of you "TechDeckers",
 for your enthusiastic support and encouragement
during the early stages of our development !

See the "Gibson 335's fret dress and setup tips "
 for a detailed description of the
TechDecks' advantages
for fret work and fingerboard levelling.

For any other "Old School" Tech's or Luthiers like myself ...

This workstation will definitely reduce your stress level;
especially when handling any 
"High End" or Vintage instruments !

Even the bowl back instruments, like this Ovation,
can be handled firmly and safely without the use of clamps or vices.

This is a Ricky 4001 Re-Fret with Dunlop 6105 fretwire.

Levelling an Upright Bass fingerboard can be 
 thirsty work .... nothing like 
an ice-cold Tuborg Gold to rinse down the dust .. lol !
