    Why would you leave all that squeeze out on the edges of your fingerboard? I do like the rubber inner tube band clamping technique and I will remember it. When building a new guitar, we clamp the fingerboard with a caul on top before the neck is carved. You also may want to drill a couple of tiny holes right through the fret slots and use a couple of small gauge index pins to keep the fingerboard from skating around on you. Say at the second fret and 13th or later fret. The holes must be small enough that the frets will cover them up. I hope you use a scraper after the glue gels a little and clean that up. It will be murder to clean up after it hardens. Take care Sir, I'm glad to see a lutherie related post on here.
