This Strat neck is ready for a full refret, but first we need to fix one of the dot markers on the 12th fret.
Looks to have had a bad repair in the past, and the plastic has perished.
The dot markers measure 6mm diameter.
This old chop stick should do the job and it’s nearly the right size, but it square.
Let’s put this in the drill and run it through some sandpaper.
Only takes a minute or two.
Reading 6mm on the micrometer.
Let’s flatten the end of on the circular sander.
6mm drill to take out what remains of the old marker.
Nice clean hole here.
Hacksaw the end off 2 or 3mm.
Drop of glue.
Leave to set.
Sand flat along the fingerboard.
New fret marker.
